The Champions Rewatch Sunday 16th May The Dark Island

The Champions Rewatch Episode 11 – The Dark Island
Time to dust off your box sets again (or even YouTube) for Episode 11 of the series on Sunday 16th May at 9pm.
The Dark Island
Written by Tony Williamson and directed by…..Yay, good old Cyril Frankel!!
Starring the glorious Vladek Sheybal, who literally got the point in From Russia With Love…ouch.
This week, our chums from behind the Bamboo Curtain are back. They are a bit miffed as Richard blew up their fridges last week, and so they turn to something even more dangerous…fire missiles at both the US and Russia and start World War 3.
The place they choose to do this is a spot in the middle of the Pacific Ocean (this must be so as Tremayne’s map says so).
The island in question looks very similar to Tracey Island and this island has only just been discovered so the US navy sends a search party over…unfortunately 2 of the search party meet a sticky end, cue Anthony Ainley and Nick Tate going for a swim in the sea just off the beach which looks strangely familiar…yes, it’s the beach where Craig washed up in episode 3 and the beach which can be seen in the background when someone wanders along the walkway out into Elstree’s pond..(see Rotterdam Europort and the Albanian port from last week).
So what next?
Nemesis are called in and our guys set off to the island…Craig and Sharron go in style aboard a yacht, while Richard skydives from a plane over the jungle covered island…which from the aerial shots as Richard descends looks just like the rolling green hills of Southern England!
But it must be a jungle that Richard lands in because he comes face to face with a big snake!!
We learn that Craig is a gentleman as he lets Sharron have the bed while he sleeps in a chair. Sharron has something in common with our dear sweet Soolin…she likes showers, but Craig averts his eyes.
Speaking of eyes…Richard’s baby blues are in action again this week.
Steady One Spare Part.
And so the scene is set…Richard flexes his muscles and breaks a chain, then knocks down a door and then leaps over a fence…phew!
But the baddie launches one of the missiles and it is up to Craig to find the big button…
Sharron, by the way, demonstrates to us ladies exactly how to deal with a nasty guard. Someone should really put all her tips together to show us exactly how all this self defence is done!
There is another connection to a James Bond film; the opening sequence of our heroes playing a round of golf was shot at the same place that Mr Bond played golf with Mr Goldfinger.
So sit back and watch another gloriously enjoyable episode…the only dodgy accents being Mr Tate and Mr Ainley’s American ones.
While Mr Sheybal’s is just wonderful as he purrs every line…
PS…no snakes were harmed in the making of this episode, but the yacht got a bit dented.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

And speaking of links, our 3 guest stars named by littlesue, each appeared in cult TV classics: Vladek Sheybal was the top scientist/psychiatrist in UFO; Anthony Ainley became the Master in Dr Who; Nick Tate, of course played Alan Carter, Eagle pilot in Space 1999. Oooh, all these wonderful stars from my childhood in one episode. All this and blue eyes too! Grin

Just a heads up to join One Spare Part, Ellen and me this evening at 9pm to watch The Champions Episode The Dark Island. We are dusting off our box sets (and Ellen is on Youtube) to watch Richard leap out of a plane (not pushed this time!!!), break chains, knock down doors and leap over fences! Not only that, he faces off huge snakes and uses his baby blue eyes on an unsuspecting guard.
Craig steers a yacht onto a reef and then sleeps in a chair...
All in a day's work for our Champs......

Just put the disc in. The main menu has a pic of Sharron and Craig with a pole. As in pole dancing...?
