Any song written by ex-convicts wouldn't be printable, let alone broadcastable on TV.


Unlikely. I think that's what they were singing in that room there. Interesting that the convicts are all men – again. Clearly the writers at this time hadn't countenanced some of the really nasty female convicts who came along around that time. They hadn't watched "Within These Walls".

Hi, Pilot. Eveything's a bit weird and quiet here in the UK. Having a king will take some getting used to.


The comments wheeling up next to the speeches on Youtube have all kinds of stupid comments saying give back this and that and that the queen is in hell with Gandhi and Nehru."Romans go home", I say.


I saw a report earlier that someone in Scotland had dissed the queen, only to have her shop pelted with eggs and worse by an angry crowd of 150 locals. Lots of loyalty around atm. Some of it slightly misdirected, perhaps,


All you have to do is not shop there. Easy, and less like peasant behaviour.

This episode is full of black humour. The exchanges between Grose and Servie are excellent as well as those between Servie and Vila.

It's when you get the beach ball of death on the screen that you have to worry.

In case neither of you has a Mac, that's a Mac joke.

The dialogue writing is excellent. It's the storyline that begins to drag it down, and the BBQ chicken that finishes it off.

I don't mind the story, but Moloch needs to have been more scary and vile given what it's meant to represent.

Doran's best line is the one where he says he doesn't like women. Neat twist!

I know. Had some bronze boots not unlike those at the time – Italian, bought at a black market town up in the mountains on the boarder of Syria and Lebanon. I meant she should swap them for crepe soles.

You'd expect smokes to be high up on the list of black market supplies, but no; more often it was washing powder and toilet paper.

Tarrant is doing quite well as a Blake substitute, poor planning, arrogance etc. I wish we'd seen more of them together.

Wish we'd seen more of Doran, too. Vila could do with a friend.

Well, ultimately, Tarrant's experience with Blake shows that he doesn't do nuance too well. They would have wiped each other out if Avon hadn't got there first.
