UK Rewatch - C12 Death-Watch
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Twelve – Death-Watch (Carry On Watching Blake’s 7)
The date: Tuesday, September 20th, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Chris Boucher gets to write his Western and does a rather magnificent job with it; Vila wants to go on holiday, but he’s daft enough to suggest the outskirts of the derelict Wembley Exhibition site, rather the lakeside at Gardinos; Avon and Servie have another snog; Avon remembers Dayna has a feud with Servie, because the script editor is writing the episode and he knows these things; Avon remembers Cally is telepathic, because the script editor is writing the episode and he knows these things; there's a cheeky reference to Star Trek being fiction within the B7 universe; and there’s TWO Tarrants in this episode – work out what you could do with two of him (steady!). Yes, it’s time to dig out your green post-it notes and stick them on your forehead, as we re-watch another brilliant episode.

Episode in a word: Duel.
Character to cheer: Avon is on fine form here, coming up with a clever plan to foil Servie’s schemes, and saving double the planets that Blake did in 26 episodes simply to get one up on Servie! This is perhaps the last episode of B7 to have a happy ending… well, if you ignore that (SPOILERS) Tarrant’s brother has just kicked the bucket!
Character to boo: Vinni is not only an android, but highly annoying too. Deeta should have shot him in the back when he had the chance.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Steven Bevan (Max) was Professor Jones in the Doctor Who serial “The Green Death”. The jammy git won the heart of Katy Manning’s Jo Grant.
Best line: “Are you sure you can't redesign him as something useful, like a drinks dispenser? Or an empty space. I think he'd look really good as an empty space.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Through The Particle Cloud
Vote Og.

We're up to our necks in young Tarrants,
Teal's champion AND heir apparent.
Alas once again, Dayna postpones revenge,
While Del executes Deeta's errand.

Hopefully I'll be able to join you tonight. I don't have a kitchen as that has been removed, but the kitchen fitter's van has broken down...but at least I can make tea and have biccies and choccie.
Meanwhile, a skip needs filling...what a shame it's raining.....
Cold! You don't know the meaning of the word cold!
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of your window!!

I look behind me, what do I see? A pair of golden wings seem to be attached to me.

If you do, please watch Moloch rather than Death-Watch, because you're posting on the wrong thread Wink

Hi - I made the thread 'sticky' so that it's at the top. (I hope).That should help to avoid confusion. Now all I need to remember is how to un-sticky it afterwards.(Only learned how to do this last week!)

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm finding it a bit like wading through treacle moving about on the site tonight. How is it for you?

My computer keeps highlighting Ultraworld, but I shall ignore it...
By the way, did any one see last Friday's Outer Limits episode entitled Demon with a Glass hand? Robert Culp was walking around with a mini Orac as a hand and it was talking to him but not being very helpful until the fingers were back in place. It reminded me of Avon's idea of the Muller Android as a walking talking robot....

Vila, I have bad news, and then worse news

The bad news, there are two Tarrant's in this episode.

The worse news, you will have to deal with the, while mostly sober.

I do like the beginning of this one, with the ship and the voiceover. A great improvement over the usual plinky music and random shots of space phenomena.

I suspect that this is going to be a heretical opinion, but I really don't like Avon's outfit this week. Those shoulder pads are hideous.
