Servalan is hanging on to that fur, keeping it closed...wonder what she's wearing under it, if anything?

An entertaining hodge-podge. Of course, there's a bit of Central Asian as well. The set arrangers had fun scouring the BBC vaults.


Didn't they just! With this and the cabaret last week, they are really getting to enjoy themselves.


Maybe they're using up the full amount of their budget before the end of the series?


Like the public service – spend it all before the end of the financial year otherwise you'll get less next time.

Spotted… Swat Valley chair.

What’s with Blake’s ‘good’ when Villa tells him that Jenna is pair bonding with the chief. He almost sounds as if (how shall I put this on a family friendly site) ‘that is something he’d dream about’. LOL


To me it sounds as though he is fixated on getting the secret above all else. She's getting close to the chief - so she will get the secret from him - so good. But either it shows a great faith in Jenna's ability to take care of herself, or else it's pretty indifferent to her safety.

This is interesting, if something happens to Gola and Rod then Blake and Vila will have to fight each other. LOL

Can I say, it's probably both?

Is Tara supposed to be Rod and Gola’s sister, mother or aunt?

Well that’s what I thought, but then why didn’t she go down to the cells and get her ‘father’ out??

Because she knows he is dying?

Bother, it's finished. I'll have to do some WORK now. Thank you all for a lovely morning, even if this isn't one of my favourite eps - too much shouting. But worth watching because Servalan was in it.
Take care: see you next week.

Because he's elderly and probably not able to protect her. She might otherwise end up with one of those spiky caltrap things in her head. Also, it was, until now, a patriarchy and we know what they're like.

That was fun. Thanks for watching everyone. On to next week, when we find out what Travis is really going to do with the location of Star One.

Grin There IS a lot of shouting. I always wonder what it's like for an actor having to put up with someone yelling in your face.

Have a good week MsVirn, with hopefully not too much work.

I think she wants rid of all the outsiders, so that she can take power herself. If Blake and the others free the old sharl and the fool, they will come back up, but, even if she doesn't know that he's dying, she knows that he will be pretty weak by now, and, as Obsidian says, not able to protect her. She needs to be in the tent, in the heart of things, to establish control - if she goes downstairs, some ambitious second cousin could seize his chance.

Tyce, good to have you back. You must tell all some time soon. Others in the UK said that the ABBA show was fantastic. Mxx

No I mean after both Gola and Rod are dead.

Exactamente! And it's why I really like her character – other than the infectious cackling, that is.

I must admit that I am finding it hard to know who knows what at this point! I had always thought that Travis was plotting with the Andromedans for a long time, but, if he doesn't know where Star One is, how does he know that they have infiltrated it?

The cackling is annoying - but other than that, yes, she's a great character.
