Well that was a fun episode. Avon turns out to a rubbish leader... I hope they never put in charge of the Liberator permanently... who knows what he'll do to it Wink

I kinda think timeline is 10 to 15 years. Call me strange


I consider there be around a decade from The Way Back to Blake. Avon undergoes a hell of a lot of character development in that time.... too much for 4 years.


I'm more flexible. I won't say timey wimey though that annoys me. I give it 10-15. I also think Servie goes through too much for it to be four years.


Around 10 years means anything from 8-14 for me.

The journey of the London alone is 8 months, so I agree that it has to be more than 4 years.


Yep. Also look at both Avon and Servie.... they look so different. Vila is Vila though.

Yeah, wish Radio National would play it when they're doing their space themed things. Much prefer to the Star Wars theme.

Avon saves the day by turning the computer off and on again... you can tell he works in IT.

Many years ago I worked in a office with older people who were all computer incompetent - I was the 'young one' and was therefore expected to know all this stuff. So every time the printer didn't work they didn't just call on me they whinged to me. (It was one of those old fashioned printers that used continuous paper and had perforations on both sides so it could be wound through).

Anyway almost always when I was called to 'fix' it was either just not plugged in at the power point or the printer itself wasn't turned on. One day it wasn't working but I was too flat out to look at it. They kept whinging and finally I just screamed from the other side of the room "Is the printer turned on?", "Yes" was the answer, I said "Oh I don't know then and I'm too busy to look at it now". Then I remembered how silly these people where and again shouting across the room I asked "Is it plugged in?" There was a lot of kerfuffle then ten full minutes later after they had got down on their hand and knees to look. They said "Yes". I said "Oh well, I'll look at it after this presentation is over".

Anyway the next day a techo arrived. I didn't say anything I just though they obviously couldn't wait for me to fix. But the techo was leaving almost before I could finish this thought. I said "That was quick. What's was wrong?" He said with a grin from ear to ear "They work better if they're turned on at the power point." Since they had spent so much time on the floor looking to see if it was plugged in it didn't occur to me that they were too stupid to look to see if it was actually 'on' at the power point.....

When I first started work, I doubled as the entire IT department. Every morning the MD would have a problem logging on to his computer. The problem was that he couldn't type without looking at the keyboard. The log-on box would pop up, then, as he looked down to type in his user name and password, the Norton Anti Virus splash screen would appear. He never saw it as he was never looking at the screen, so he didn't realise it blocked whatever he typed. The splash screen would disappear before he'd finished his one finger typing. He'd finish typing, look up and hit enter and get a failure message every time, then call me yet again. He'd repeat the exercise to demonstrate, and of course would log on successfully because there was no splash screen interrupting his typing. This just made him more frustrated....

Meegat (Gamete)...

Good grief, I hadn't realised that! Despite having a degree in Biology and a love of anagrams, that never, ever crossed my mind.

So was that Terry Nation being a genius, or pure coincidence? When we interviewed him back in whenever it was ('89?) we asked about his choice of various character names - if only we'd made the Meegat connection, we could have asked him that as well. And now it's too late Sad

And the Meegat/gamete thing gets even better as the real name of 'our' Meegat means 'life' ...

... and I hadn't made that connection, either! That's spooky-cool.
