UK Rewatch - B6 Trial
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Six – Trial (Carry On Philosophical Flea)
The date: Tuesday, May 11th, 2021
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Blake throws a big sulk over Gan’s death and teleports down to the Planet Of Spit, where he makes friends with a Philosophical Flea. Meanwhile, Travis is in trouble. A lot of trouble. Servie has it in for him, after the previous episode. Can he escape execution? Brian Croucher still has a few episodes left on his contract, so he’s probably going to be alright.

Episode in a word: Self-pity.
Characters to cheer: Trooper Par seems a thoroughly decent guy – it’s nice to see below the helmet of a Federation Guard for once. And I know Travis is a mass murderer, and twice over it would seem (since this episode changes the name of Auros to Zircaster, suggesting there were TWO massacres that Travis is responsible for). But is he simply the product of a very broken system and just doing his job? He certainly puts up a very good justification for it, in a rousing speech. Kudos to Brian Croucher, who often doesn’t get the praise he deserves for his performance here.
Character to boo: Yes, Blake you really should be gone for a bit of a sulk in your cabin instead of teleporting down to the Planet Of Spit, and it does come across that you are trying to manipulate the crew back on your side, after YOU caused the death of Gan with your recklessness. The previous episode and this episode represent the worst of Roj Blake. Thank goodness we see a different side in the next episode.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: John Bryans (Bercol) is yet another actor to appear in “Doctor Who”. He was Torvin, the leader of a bunch of thieves in “The Creature From The Pit” - if you recall that’s the one with the Creature and the Pit. Of course, he also appears again in B7 as Shrinker, a rather different role from Bercol, although still one of the Feds.
Best line: “Avon’s gadget works!”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Space Michelin Men.

Considering Blake & co were going around the ............(insert proper space dimension here) helping to free worlds from Federation rule, we don't often get a chance to say "YES!" and fist punch the air. But when they close in for attack and hit Servalan's place...well, now...it is a great moment.

Pity they did not close in for the kill though...

Dear Mum,

I thought Gan’s death hit me pretty hard, but it must have hit Blake hard, too. He’s done a runner, only, he’s done a runner and left a forwarding address. Maybe we’ll pick him up, maybe we won’t. Maybe he’ll let us. Maybe he won’t. Maybe I’ll ask Cally for a Soma. Maybe she’ll give me one. It would be a good chaser to this sudden dose of reality we’ve all been given.

I don’t see the point in all this, really. Avon says he does. He says it’s guilt. I wonder how he knows so much about guilt. And Jenna… well, Jenna is very… very what? Angry? Hurt? Whatever it is, it’s not good. I normally don’t mind the silent treatment, but hers can lower the temperature even in a large, warm room. You could get frostbite by touching her shoulder. I wouldn’t want to be Blake when he comes back, if he comes back.

To pass the time, Jenna and Avon played chess with pepperpots. To pass the time, I watched them. This is because the only videos
we have on board are the Star Wars Prequels. We really need to pick up some decent movies for our recreation time.

So, Blake put himself down on a living planet that wants to eat him. Sounds like a worse holiday than being stuck inside Madame Tussauds for two whole weeks during the spring break student bus tours. Cally had to watch the teleport to bring Blake up. Might have been easier for her if Avon and I hadn’t been standing in front of her.

Using Avon’s new gadget, we made a high speed attack against Supreme Command Headquarters. I feel better just thinking about how we must have ruined Travis’ day.

Love, Vila

A blow in the head with a well aimed moon disc should do the job then.
