I think one of the things I love about this episode is that you genuinely think Tarrant is Federation right up until the end.


One of my best things is the name 'Clegg' Perfect. Clegs are horrible things. Don't know if you have them downunder - a fly that doesn't buzz, so you aren't expecting the bite.


I rather think he has his doubts about Tarrant, but is not sure that he isn't just a well-connected pretty boy officer.

It's what I would use. It might be Scottish?

Just checked – Horse Flies. Yes, we have them, but I don't think I've ever heard the term Cleg before.

More Central America than Egypt but this show is remarkably cross-cultural. Just depends what was available in the BBC props department.

See also 'Horizon', 'The Keeper' etc


Horizon is brilliantly South American with all the feathers. I love the costumes. I just love the eps with Egyptian appliqués where – if you know where to look – you can see the Arabic.

I've not heard of those. On Kibbutz (northern Israel) there were horrible little flies called 'Barchashim'. Tiny, silent and very bite-y, especially in the watermelon fields. Travelled in swarms.
My views are my own.

VILA: I'm entitled to my opinion.
AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

Isn't that exactly what Tarrant is/was?
You're not sulking, I hope?

He does look just like that – well-connected, pretty boy officer. Don't see much evidence otherwise IMHO. Grin

Pretty much. At least, they make it seem that way until we learn more.

Lol. Good to know my eclectic cultural education comes from whatever was found in the BBC props department.

Orac: "Vila weighs seventy-three kilos, Avon."
Avon: "Vila, are you here? I need your help."

Cygnus Alpha and The Keeper both have them. And, thankfully, it's not the same one. Not sure if there are others.
