UK Rewatch - D10 Gold
trevor travis
The episode: Derek Ten - Gold (Carry On Photocopying)
The date: Tuesday, December 6th, 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/is already dead (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
There's a shot of the bottom of a certain blonde, lady gunslinger (per shot) 10

Back to the episode, and join us for a wonderful heist story, in which the crew have descended into common criminality… which was always going to happen at some point. Plus Roy Kinnear plays an old friend of Avon… so his character is obviously doomed! And there’s a mysterious ex-president in high heels… who could it be? Meanwhile, I will reward handsomely anyone who manages to get a photocopy of Soolin’s bum – I’ve got 18 billion of ‘valuable’ Xerox (as opposed to Xerok) currency to give away.

Episode in a word: Criminals.
Character to cheer: Soolin is so cool and wonderful in this one. Although some of that is while she’s killing innocent security guards. So maybe there’s no-one to cheer here.
Character to boo: Avon for getting out-manipulated by that mysterious ex-president in high heels. I who she is?
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Roy Kinnear was a character actor who starred in many, many films. I always remember him for his part in Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory.
Best exchange: AVON: “Why pick on us?” KEILLER: “You have a ship for the getaway. And a reputation for daring.” TARRANT: “Which you heard about where?” KEILLER: “Oh, I've known Avon, long time. We're old friends...” TARRANT: “That's not what I asked.” KEILLER: “On the grapevine, my friend. You're getting to be big news.”
Blake's 7 will return in “Carry On Dieting.”

We'll put the resistance on hold,
To line our own pockets with gold.
We'll make recompenses, minus expenses,
Unless we some how get foreclosed.

I know this is a favourite among fans, but for me I dislike the casual killings for monetary gain! My heroes were the ones who tried to bring down the Evil Federation!!
I look behind me, what do I see? A pair of golden wings seem to be attached to me.

Greetings from the House at the end of the Cul de Sac with a nice new shiny kitchen, tiled walls and almost painted!
But the good news is......HE'S PUT THE HEATING ON!!!!
Yay.
But I'll still have a blanket, hot mug of tea, biccies and choccie 'cos it is still a bit chilly in this 'ere 'allway!!!!
Hopefully, by next week I'll have one of those hooded blankets from Snuggle and I'll be really nice and toasty.
So to the episode...
Fab model work (you can keep your CGI), a fab bit of music and the lovely Roy Kinnear.

Hi Lorna, I know what you mean about the killing. I've been watching the Man From Uncle and both Nappy and Illya shoot an awful lot of nasty Thrush chaps.
I started watching the Expenables last week and had to turn it off...it was just soooo violent.

Anyway, I need your advice. I have just aquired an old fibreglass Troll/Gnome planter. What can I put in it to cheer the patio up?

How about some tulip bulbs for spring and top it with pansies for now.

Hello everyone!

As for gratuitous killings... aha! There we go, proof we in the Federation were right all along!

... and we're not the same at all. When we do it it's a law and order issue, not evil, when rebels do it, well then it's very naughty.

There's a plant stall round the centre this Friday, I'll have a look and see if they have any.

You do know there are other people seeing this? You're just asking for trouble, Sue!
Glad to hear you have some heating now. Think we're all going to need more of that in the next week or so.

I agree. I really like this episode but... gratuitous killings are a no-no for me too. The whole of this series is rather unsettling which makes for great viewing on one level...

Models are great, better than CGI. Have a whole B7 wargame set up here, including large spaceships and 28mm figures of our heroes, and Federation forces.

They were never going to get any gold. Servalan had out-thought them all the way.
