UK Rewatch - C13 Terminal
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Thirteen – Terminal (Carry On Through The Particle Cloud)
The date: Monday, September 27th, 2021
The time: 8pm UK time

All good things must come to an end, as perhaps my favourite season of anything ever comes to a conclusion. In which (RATHER HUGE SPOILERS) the Liberator is destroyed (sob!!), Zen dies (even bigger sob!!), Servie says “MAXIMUM POWER”, and the crew are stranded on the planet Terminal with Deep Roy to keep them company in a gorilla suit.

Episode in a word: Finale (the working title of the episode).
Character to cheer: Vila for saving Orac at the last minute due to clever bit of invention.
Character to boo: Oh, Avon, what did you do? Much of your criticism of Blake was valid, but here you repeat almost his every mistake. Not telling the crew your plans CHECK. Taking reckless risks CHECK. Falling into an obvious trap CHECK. Ignoring the advice of a fellow crew member, and therefore being responsible for their subsequent death CHECK. Yes indeed, just as with Blake in “Pressure Point”, there will be a price to pay.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face… or rather recognisable voice: Gillian McCutcheon (Kostos) was the voice of the therapist in the mid-90s twenty-something drama This Life.
Best exchange: SERVALAN: “You don't seem surprised to see me.” AVON: “If it was a trap, it had to be yours. The precise planning, the meticulous detail, the general flair; who else could it be?” SERVALAN: “Thank you. That you of all people should appreciate my work is very flattering.”

Blake's 7 will return… or will it? We’ll have to wait for the continuity announcement over the end credits.

Now I am in a dilemma...do I watch The Main Chance on Talking Pictures? Or...do the rewatch.
I may have to record the Main Chance (with the brilliant John Stride as David Main) and then after Terminal I will have about 10 mins to switch over to Forces TV.
Phew, what a busy life I lead.....
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.

I don't know how but I missed any mention that B7 was ending whilst watching series C back in the day. So when this announcement came on, I was flabbergasted...my gast had never been so flabbered! What sensations went through my head! What, indeed? To this day, I cannot describe the thoughts and feelings I experienced. Just a crazy, mixed-up kid...

They lied.

They said, over the end credits of Terminal, that Blake's 7 will return later THIS year (i.e. in 1980). And then I had to wait until September 28th, 1981 until a new episode of B7. That's a long wait when you're a kid... I was 6 (nearly 7) when Terminal was transmitted and nearly 8-and-a-half by the time Rescue was transmitted, although a bonus was the repeat of 8 episodes from Colin during the summer of '81 on Monday nights.

I think the trouble is that the BBC is run by people who don't actually like tv or cannot give credit where credit is due because the show doesn't fit in with what they think they (and we) should like. I am now of the opinion that if the beeb had let B7 run they would have interfered and ruined it and its legacy.
See: Life on Mars and the travesty that followed.
(thinks: I may be in a minority on this one but it's the 1st example that came into my head).

The original finale to the saga. Would the series have been remembered as fondly had it ended here?

Dear Mum
As dear old Uncle Cat would say, Don’t fly though the Big Orange Swirly Thing In Space.

We were playing games at the teleport console because in Dayna’s words, ‘Avon isn’t very much fun at the moment.’ When is he ever?

Avon said we should just try trusting him. I remember what Avon said when Blake said that. At least Blake didn’t threaten to kill anyone. In Avon’s defense, he only threatened to kill Tarrant.

So Avon took us to a 400 year old man-made planet and went down on his own without telling anyone what he was doing, but he says he left a video message. It reminds me of the time Blake almost did a scarper after Gan died.

You remember that Big Orange Swirly Thing In Space we flew through? It ate our ship.

Turns out Avon thought he had found Blake. And Avon is the one who warned us about sentimentality. Of course, the whole thing was a trap. Servalan got a half eaten Liberator, much good it did her. I hope the BOSTIS eats her, too. We got Avon back, but not Blake.

Now we’re stuck on a man-made planet full of dangerous mutated life forms with no Liberator, no ship at all, no way off this planet, and no way of knowing what dangers we face, but at least it beats work.

But at least I saved Orac (not that anyone will thank me) so I can still send these digital letters home. You wouldn’t happen to know of any long lost uncles who keep a lot of wine on hand, have a pretty blonde assistant, and own a planet hopper, would you?

Love. Vila

Right, I've got The Main Chance on record so I can watch this finale...do you think that guy will say 'It's coming back' or words to that effect like he did back in 1980?
I screamed so loud back then...woke the two daughters up!!

Anyone know where we can get a spare Tarrant? I think we may be about to lose ours.

Terminal. Oblong today, round tomorrow., It's not a continuity error. The acid cloud is playing havoc with the ships sensors.

But not as sad as Christmas Eve.

Or was it Dec 21?
