Shadows is a great series, does Gareth play a PE teacher?


I think he is a teacher of some sorts...and this is before Children of the Stones.

Looking forward to this. Thanks for the heads up. Any idea when it starts?


Just checked, Monday 3rd of June at 5pm...and Van der Valk finishes that evening as well.

RoboCop 2 and 3 - the 2nd movie's an OK sequel but doesn't really do anything to develop Murphy/RoboCop as a character or drive the plot (although I like the world-building, and the concept of RoboCop being outdated would later be revisited in the "Prime Directives" miniseries), and it feels disjointed and unfinished (a LOT of major scenes were deleted and/or left unfilmed) - the 3rd movie... dear God, why did I bother?

There's been a lot of disagreement over the finale. How did you rate it? Did it feel like it had the right ending?


The final ruler of the kingdoms was not whom I was expecting so that was a twist I didn't see coming though I felt other parts were a little rushed. The writing and production of this final season have been a bit off which was a shame. I enjoyed it but I can't say I was blown away by the final episode or indeed any of this last season. Shame really - however, it won't stop me from watching the whole lot again Smile

So Series A is finished and I actually found it a bit of a chore in some of the episodes - Breakdown and Bounty in particular.

I liked the character development of Servalan, from being the politician in S-L-D to the more devious Servalan that we know by Deliverance.
Jenna suffered a lot in the second half, a shame that the Bounty storyline was obvious but by this time she was pretty much the pilot and that was it.
Cally changed in the second half - up to and including Duel she was still the warrior but definitely from Breakdown the nurse/crew conscience character that she became was born.
Terry Nation clearly didn't know what to do with Gan but Avon really started to come forward as the first season finished.

I wonder what will happen now that that new computer Orac has predicted the Liberator will be destroyed....

Before I find out I will be watching The Two Ronnies Christmas episodes dvd

Oh honestly child of auron! How can you possibly wait to see the outcome of the prediction!! I remember screaming and jumping up and down when the Liberator exploded and it went straight into the end credit music...and that was after last year's rewatch!! Grin you are made of stern stuff! AngryOops

And there is talk of a prequel. Which seems a bit weird since you know where it goes. I am trying to think of a prequel that worked.

Well I think I have watched B7 more than I have had hot dinners so it isn't too much of a stretch to wait a little bit. I only have one more Two Ronnies Christmas shows to watch and then I will be starting Redemption

The prequel is meant to be set several thousands of years before the Game of Thrones but to be honest I have no interest in a prequel. Like you, OSP, I can't think of a prequel which worked.

Not really on topic, but back to a recent diversion. Sadly, Judith Kerr has passed away.

There is a glimmer of relevance to B7, if you look at the article. Benedict Cumberbatch is shown attending the 50th anniversary 'party' of "The Tiger Who Came to Tea" in 2018. Mr Cumberbatch of course appeared in one of the B7E "Early adventures" CDs, in which Jenna reminds him of the importance of not being distracted when crossing your heart in zero gravity.

Four episodes into Series B of you know what.

It is quite a change in production that it can be a bit jarring but I do enjoy more model work and less of the cardboard cut out space sequences.

Redemption:- Clearly Terry Nation had time to write this script. Not keen on some of the June Hudson costumes in the first half of this series though (thinking Cally in particular, the Lobster costume and Jenna's Horizon effort). After Orac's prediction one of the crew clearly found another wardrobe room, along with a sunbed (Jenna) and garden shears (Cally).

Shadow:- Wow! You can tell this isn't written by TN. From the get go this is told in a totally different style and I love it. The sniping on the Liberator throughout this episode is so quote worthy throughout. I have always had a soft spot for this one as my earliest memory of B7 as a 4.5 year old was this story.

Weapon:- Hello Brian Croucher. I find Travis very stagy here but I know BC didn't work well with the director and was probably finding his feet. Jackie Pearce is wonderful in virtually every scene, playing some great lines written by Chris Boucher. I think the Libby crew only appear for about 15 minutes throughout the whole episode.

Horizon:- No matter how many times I watch this I just get bored which is common with all Allan Prior scripts (why was he used so much???). The scenes on the Liberator were far more interesting than on the planet. Great lines for Avon but I feel Chris Boucher's influence far more than Prior's.

Well I have been steadfastly watching Van Der Valk.
We are about to see the last three very long episodes.
I've been having serious trouble actually staying awake to be quite honest and now I understand that they are going to revive it with Marc Warren playing Van Der Valk.
I think I have to agree with a statement that I read on line; Think Van Der Valk and you think of the Music: Eye Level (as seen on TOTP). But the actual series? I can't recall a single one of these episodes.
I'm not even sure about the character of Van Der Valk. Mr Foster seemed to veer from one extreme to another.
But I am determined to watch these last 3 episodes...if only to hum along with the theme tune!
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

The Great Dictator, a black and white satire/parody of the Nazi-Fascist movement and a social commentary on fascism and socialism, considered by many to be Charlie Chaplin's magnum opus and featuring quite possibly the most thought-provoking final speech in any film, which can be viewed here: https://www.youtu...7GY1Xg6X20

I feel the same. Sad really. Barry Foster was a great actor but there is something about the character that doesn't quite click. If they do remake it - even with the marvellous Marc Warren - they will have to shake it up a whole lot.
In place of V der V they are reshowing Public Eye. If you didn't see it last year then do watch it next week. I guarantee you will start the 1st few episodes thinking "what's going on here then?" then you will get drawn into the story and the characters. You cannot be distracted from it.

Pressure Point - This harks back to the early darker stories of the previous season. Yes there are plot holes but again JP shines as Servalan. Gan's death still is sad even after a million viewings.

Trial - Hurrah, sensible costumes. Brian Croucher gives a great performance here, typically funny Boucher lines from the regulars and the return of Rontane and Bercol. This story gives a more human side to the Federation. And of course do I need to mention our favourite Supreme Commander?!

Killer - Robert Holmes wrote some excellent Doctor Who scripts, though he did write some duds too. It took many viewings for me to be able to appreciate his first B7 script. It is an episode of two stories, one is very B7 and the other is rather DW in style. Paul Daneman is excellent in this, his moan of agony right at the end still gives me the chills. Filmed after Redemption the costumes are a throwback to the first half of Series B but Cally has a fantastic dress(?) on, one of the best she wears throughout the whole series.

PP, Trial, and Killer really break the Robin Hood trope so prevalent early in the series, and set B7 apart as something more adult and realistic.

Shadows starts replaying on Talking Pictures at 5pm Monday. One episode features Gareth Thomas as littlesue informs us. Who knows who else will appear!?
