UK Rewatch - D8 Games
trevor travis
The episode: Derek Eight – Games (Carry On Up The Quarry Yet Again)
The date: Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

A reminder of the Season Derek drinking game, with one special addition for this episode:

Here’s the number of sips/swigs per each of these:
Avon is knocked unconscious 1
A scientist dies (per scientist) 5
A member of the main cast wears the same costume as last week (per costume) 2
There’s the sequence (or part of the sequence) of Scorpio landing / taking off at Xenon Base 3
Vila drinks something red (per scene) 10
Tarrant falls in love 5
Soolin shoots someone (per person) 5
Slave says “sorry” (each mention) 1
Each mention of “Sleer” 2
Avon laughs manically and/or smiles inappropriately 5
There’s a downbeat ending in sharp contrast to the jangly end theme 10
The final shot of the episode includes Paul Darrow 3
A member of the main cast is killed or stunned (per cast member) 1 bottle of wine / 1 can of beer
Someone is killed with a Mecronian knife 3

Back to the episode, and the crew go on a location visit to Winspit Quarry, only to find Servie is doing exactly the same thing. Meanwhile, Vila gets trod on and mounts a one-man rescue; Soolin is able to outshoot a quicker version of herself; Tarrant again proves that he can’t land a ship; and Orac starts an affair with one of Gambit's circuit boards.

Episode in a word: Games (yup, another episode which does exactly what it says on the tin).
Character to cheer: Vila, who proves to be a rather good one-man back-up squad.
Characters to boo: Tarrant and Dayna for walking into a very obvious trap – just as well Vila is around to save them (see above).
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Stratford Johns (Belkov) had a wide-ranging CV. He was famous for being in Z Cars, while he also appeared in the 1982 Doctor Who serial “Four To Doomsday”.
Best exchange: TARRANT: “Why should this middle-aged Federation professor want to help you, Avon?” AVON: “Because apart from being a brilliant geologist and an expert in mining techniques, he is also greedy, avaricious, and a crook.” VILA: “Has he got any faults?”

Blake's 7 will return in “Carry On Getting Sand In Your Pants”.
Vote Og.

It's amazing how Belkov has held on.
When the Feds come a calling, to Avon he's crawling.
Alas his fate is best not dwelled on.

Sorry Matey, tooooooo late! Just as I was about to see what the Master of Keyboard damage had done this time, I was called away by Dearest who inquired as to what delights I was cooking for dinner tomorrow...whatever falls out of the freezer said I. Anyway, in that split second you snuck in....but I knew what was lurking and so no tea made contact with my keyboard...YAY!!!!!

Strangely enough, this has happened in a film. It was a western and a great deal was made of the hero's injury...only for the next shot to show his other arm all bandaged up!!!

I love the exchanges with Stratford Johns and Jacks in this one. Two great talents firing off each other. Brilliant stuff.

Next time you do some work on the house, Sue, perhaps add some better heating in the hall??

I agree I was always cold as a child and I vowed when I had my own house I would never be cold again!!

He won't put the heating on!
And we've also been told that the wall insulation only goes halfway up the wall.....

Up until Nikki was born in 1977, Dearest insisted that the 2 bar electric fire in the front room (in our first house) was good enough. He doesn't feel the cold.
Then we had a Parkray put in and that was lovely...but this house has always been cold despite the new boiler and extra rads!!

Our house dates to about 1860. However heat is pumped in it flows out at a high rate!

My mother would never have the central heating on between 9 and 4. My memories are of islands of heat in front of the gas fire, then the rest of the house bitterly cold.

It never goes well does it... for those they're dealing with in particular.
