UK Rewatch - C4 Dawn Of The Gods
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Four – Dawn Of The Gods (Carry On Going Baldly)
The date: Tuesday, July 26th, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Orac does something really, really, really stupid; Avon does something a bit stupid; the Lord Thaaaaaaaaaaaarn does something very stupid; and Dawn doesn't do anything stupid at all, because she's not in this episode, despite it being named after her. Get out your Space Monopoly sets and your graphite writing sticks and join in with this rewatch of this undervalued gem.

Meanwhile, those of a nervous disposition are warned of just how scary the Slave Chasing Machine is. To quote the Cat, we may wish to go up to brown alert (obligatory Red Dwarf reference already taken care of.)

Episode in a word: Pencil.
Characters to cheer: Tarrant for his clever Bald Dwarf wordplay to stop the Caliph knowing the full nature of Orac, and Cally tricking the Lord Thaaaaaaaaaaaarn at the end.
Characters to boo: Orac is a prize idiot for wanting to take a closer look at a ‘fascinating’ black hole – he’d be reduced to atoms as well. And Avon, how was a spacesuit going to insulate you from a black hole? Go and sit in the thickie corner with Orac.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Terry Scully (Groff) was Vic Thatcher in the wonderful opening season of “Survivors”, who was initially left for dead in shocking style after a lie from Anne Tranter. Vic later re-appeared, confined to a wheelchair. He also played the devious Fewsham in the Doctor Who serial “The Seeds Of Death”. A very talented actor.
Best line: It has to be Vila’s “I'm in hell - and it's full of Avons”, although also deserving of a mention is: “So, the Lord Thaarn escaped. I suspect we have made another enemy. A pity.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Captain Shad
Vote Og.

Our heroes land in quite a fix,
As Orac's up to his old tricks.
So Cally gets shooty, the lads do their duty,
With a well placed graphite writing stick.

They must have been all the rage at the time. My father had a green one.

That would be perfect for a Dawn of the Gods/Ultraworld crossover!

And good evening from Virn, where all is green and beautiful, after some rain. How is everyone?

I've started to see them at car boot sales again. Perhaps I should start rescuing them.

It's a bit warm still and hardly a drop of rain.

No ship or unidentified object....

But there is a known object, a big black swirly thing in space.

Good that it is not orange... then they would really be in trouble!

Maybe this black hole is one of the several that lead into the Dakkardim balloon of the Zgmahkons?
