Ultras

While Ultraworld does sound like a discount store, I love this episode, the sets and the three silver fiends. They start off calm and seemingly benign, but turn out to be disturbingly diabolical.
Vila: Where are all the good guys?
Blake: You could be looking at them.
Avon: What a depressing thought!

Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Avon: You seem to know everything.
Ultra: That is our mission. To gather and accumulate information on all known worlds and civilizations.

Ultra: Sleep will soon come, and when it does, transference will take place. It is quite painless. You will feel nothing. Ever again. Your mind will be released from your body. That is all.
Avon: First of all you have to make me sleep. I tend to suffer from insomnia.
Vila: Where are all the good guys?
Blake: You could be looking at them.
Avon: What a depressing thought!

Cally’s ‘treatment’ is almost complete: “soon she will be wiped clean, ready for absorption.” It is a gloriously horrible plot. The sight of the zombified “walking dead” menials marching through echoing tunnels adds to the eerie atmosphere. Tarrant even offers an effective metaphor for the Ultras’ dark purpose: “Ever seen a lizard suck a bird’s egg dry? Well that’s what they were doing to Cally’s brain, draining her memory and personality and transferring them to the memory store.” The refrigerated store adds a further disturbing touch, racks of bodies – “the empty husks” – awaiting feeding time for The Core. Hoyle even provides us with the clever, albeit sick, joke that these bodies are “food…for thought.”
Vila: Where are all the good guys?
Blake: You could be looking at them.
Avon: What a depressing thought!

I often wonder how this episode might have developed had other characters been turned into zombies.

CALLY: "Avon, shouldn't we return Tarrant's mind to him?"
AVON: "Why? The zombie version is more intelligent than the real thing."
VILA: "That's true".

How can you return what never existed?

Dangerous ground there, TT!
I expect Clare is keeping a list of every Tarrant remark...and come October!! Well................
Likewise, Meegat, PC, Lurena and myself are keeping a tally of every comment about a certain, rather nice computer expert!
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Uh-oh, is the word for March going to be "WELSH" Shock Grin Grin

And no, nice is definitely not the word for Avon. Wink

Actually, it’s a good job that Vila and Travis aren’t supplying the words for the fan-fic challenge:

TRAVIS: “The word. Tell us the word for January. The word. The word. The word.”
VILA: “It’s TELEPORT.”

TRAVIS: “The word. Tell us the word for February. The word. The word. The word.”
VILA: “It’s TELEPORT.”

TRAVIS: “The word. Tell us the word for March. The word. The word. The word.”
VILA: “It’s TELEPORT.”

It could start to become a bit monotonous. Grin

One of the few strengths of Ultraworld is that Tarrant and Dayna get a bit more action, especially Tarrant, who is portrayed in a more positive light here. He is shown to be a more proactive thinker with good intentions at heart and less of an arrogant swaggering bully. This version is more in line with his first appearance (Aftermath/Powerplay), and would continue into (and during) Series 4. Even Vila saves the day (albeit inadvertently).

Avon's a badass, actually a rather "nice" ass!

Rodders is pretty well used to something similar happening on our Avengers forum every time Emma Peel or Purdey get mentioned anyway...

Here's some fun trivia: "Ultra" is an Italian pejorative term for a football fanatic/hooligan. Smile

Well it is possible to buy personalised street signs these days, so anything could happen!
