Wow, you've certainly been busy Anne! I second Obsidian's comments.
"You're not sulking, I hope?"

Have to admit that this is one of my favourite Avon costumes. Had a good finger of it at Forever Avon.

I do like Grenlee and Forres. Among the best of the Blakes 7 Federation functionaries.

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone. I doiubt that the document is that rare or valuable, but it is interesting. The original might still be in existence somewhere.

Usually yes, but on this occasion I don't think he does. It is an incredibly risky thing that he is doing, and it shows how much Anna means to him.

Meant.

It's tempting to speculate about Anna's resistence, and what would have happened if they had succeeded.

I've said before that I can't see Avon going for this Anna, but on reflection, after a rewatch earlier in the week (testing out a set-top box) I think it's that he would be less attracted to the Anna with the boofy councillor's-wife hair and more attracted to the cheeky, impish person who confronts Servalan. That they are one and the same person would have clinched it for him – the multi-dimensional, when-I-need-to-be-I-am person works now I come to think of it. Does that make sense? I'm drivelling.

Yes, it does. The mirror of what she says to him - who is she really? Plus someone as intelligent as he is - they can laugh at the world together.

Oh, I think he's gambling, no doubt based on knowledge obtained via Orac, that he'll survive in intact enough through the interrogation process to confront Shrinker. I would have been more impressed had we seen a few bumps, bruises and black eyes.

Anyone want to comment on Servalan's fancy frock today?

Phew! I'm glad someone understood. Yes, they're both intelligent and can spark of each other. She's playing a game as the councillor's wife but he – because he loves her that much – fails to grasp that she might be playing other games.

It's a good look. I have a shirt – ancient now – with collar and cuffs that are pearl beaded like that. I like it. Thankfully, it has the sleeve that prevents accidents from occurring should she stand on the hem. Ahem.

'somewhere in Oxfordshire' apparently. A private home and they didn't want it identified, I believe.

Stuff on screen has to be a bit obvious otherwise we might not notice it. Or maybe that was the only size they could find at the 'pretend pearls' shop.

I've got something about it somewhere. Cornbury House near Chipping Norton. It was on the market a few years back. You can go there for events but it's not open to the public.

Yes, I think you're right. On the whole I like it rather than otherwise.

Brilliant. Glad someone found it - it's probably changed hands sinice they used it for filming.

I like the idea of going there for events. Hiring it for a Servalan-themed party, perhaps?

A shame that the pearls and sleeve get ripped.

I think the events have to be EVENTS. There's a music festival and I know there were book signings a few weeks ago. Check out the On the Market pdf which has good pics of the interior. You'll recognise the dining room.

They would have two versions of the frock - one of them ripped.

Yes, I'm seeing horse trials on google.

You definitely get the sense here that Avon has become a harder person since he and Anna were together, that the marshmallow centre has shrunk as the choccy coating has got thicker.

Avon knew she was married when they were having an affair. And yet he didn’t know the name Chesku.

One of the most intimate scenes, Servalan running that blaster over Avon's face. NOT in front of the kiddies.

Australia
The Penal Colony
Where Servalan is supreme commander.

I have always assumed that he didn't know.
