UK Rewatch - C11 Moloch
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Eleven – Moloch (Carry On Space KFC)
The date: Tuesday, September 13th, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

All together now: “It's great to be free. It's great to be free. It's great to be free from the law. It's great to be free. And we all agree. We're not going back anymore. Anymore, anymore. We’re not going back anymore. It’s great to be free. And we all agree. We’re not going back anymore.”

Yup, it’s time to get right back to basics with this wonderful black comedy, as the model of the London re-appears and we meet up with Doran, who comes from a penal colony and is clearly based a bit on Gan. Meanwhile, Avon eats an apple and his wrist is tortured, while the future of mankind looks like a bargain bucket of chicken without the bargain bucket.

Episode in a word: Rapists.
Characters to cheer: Vila is on fine form here. He stands up to Tarrant’s bullying this time around, and he forms a great couple of double-acts with Doran and, unexpectedly, Servalan.
Character to boo: Grose and Lector are simply nasty pieces of work. They’ve basically turned Sardos into the Planet Of The Rapists.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Davyd Harries (Doran) played Shapp in the Doctor Who tale, “The Armageddon Factor”.
Best exchange: TARRANT: “What would Servalan want with a penal colony?” AVON: “Who knows? Perhaps she wants to compare notes with some other genocidal maniacs. Or take a refresher course in basic brutality.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Watching Blake’s 7

This plot line is likely to sicken.
That Doran's a bomb that is tickin'.
Vila gets drafted, that poor mouse gets shafted,
And this planet's run by a plucked chicken.

Sorry kids, but I have an eye check today and can't participate. Do you think I should go with the checks or stripes? (Gets coat and begins to run). I'll be with you in spirit and thinking of KFC all of the time! Cheers.

Don't believe it. Paula and Lorna have probably snuck off to the pub together to drink bitters and talk about gardening.

Yeah, I enjoy this episode. Gross and Lector are nasty pieces of work, and glad when they get their comeuppance, but otherwise this does feel like B7 getting back to basics.

Never know what Servalan's looking for.....

Or blast her and not have to worry about it....

This is a disturbingly lazy plot device that will last the rest of the series.

Hello all! Frown

I won't be here with you tonight (not a great loss given this episode Shock) but I just wanted to say hello. And leave this here while Little Sue is having a sip of tea:

Agreed. Especially since they haven't a hope of out-thinking her.

Except they are only chasing, with no plan what to do about it.

Not having a plan is an improvement on some of the previous plans!

Planet of the rapists. Grose and Lector aren't the most pleasant characters, although I imagine there's a lot of this going on in the new degenerate Federation.

Orac: You must employ subtlety.

Everyone: Orac, you're talking to Tarrant.

A planet of therapists might be a good thing.
