Colin Rewatch - Terminal
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Thirteen (unlucky for poor Zen) - Terminal
The date: Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Avon falls for Servie's trap, Zen dies..............sob!!!!!!!!!!!, there's some men monkeying around in gorilla suits, and we say bye-bye to the Libby.

Fed up with 24 hour a day phone calls to join the National Trust, Avon flips. He strays off the designated space footpath, into a big bush of space particles and the results are disastrous. Meanwhile, Servie has plans to seize the Libby and use it as a buggy to ferry people back and forth from her large National Trust estate. Will she succeed?

Going to miss this one as I'm on the evening shift...
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

One thing I did notice when re-watching season D recently- in Terminal, the eponymous planet is a flattened sphere, but in Rescue, it's a globe. Did the production team forget, or is there an in-universe explanation for the difference?

Indeed, but objects can look different from different angles Pfft

So Scorpio could have been approaching Terminal from one of the poles? Yes, I could buy that...

That is true, plus Vila has seemingly changed clothing between C and D series. -Paula

Now that one is easily explained. While the Herculaniam-coated Liberator wardrobe stayed intact and crashed on the planet Helotrix (with Servalan inside, which is how she escaped and also why we see her next on Helotrix), Vila was a bit untidy and hadn't put his washing in the washing basket. When the Liberator was destroyed, Vila's clothing fell back onto Terminal and he was able to change into it.

If there's an overriding theme for Terminal it's one of entropy. The gradual deterioration and eventual destruction of the Liberator mirrors the tendency for all living matter in the Universe towards disorder and decay.

Nice cheery thought there Grin Grin Grin

In one of Nicola Mody's stories (I think it is Vila's emails) the explanation given is that Vila put on some extra layers when he knew they were going to have to abandon the Libby. Vila's mum is a big advocate of always having clean underwear. Cool

As well as the fall of Servalan and Avon in the fourth series, the former from alpha predator to scavenger, and the latter towards madness.

Avon mad? At which point does he stick two pencils up his nose and a pair of underpants over his head? Grin

It's because Terminal is such a sad episode, we're likely to be diving for the box of Kleneex during the rewatch rather than making clever RD/BA references Wink

Jacqueline Pearce at her most theatrical in this episode: throwing her arms aloft and shouting "Maximum Power!" Mind you, you'd think Servalan would be a tad suspicious of all that slimy stuff covering the walls.

I've got a work meeting this evening, so probably won't be able to join you. I'll try to check in when I get home, maybe add some late comments!
