UK Rewatch - B9 Countdown

The episode: Barney Nine - Countdown (Carry On Ginger Mercenary) *
The date: Tuesday, May 28th, 2024
The time: 7.45pm UK time

Sadly, Richard Whiteley and Carol Vorderperson don’t appear, but instead the Ginger Mercenary does – I think Paula might like him. This week, we find out another way that the Federation keeps control, despite only having a handful of personnel on a planet. And poor Jenna and Cally are on Libby reception - again!

Episode in a word: Grant.
Character to cheer: The Ginger Mercenary, who seems to have liberated more planets than Blake (which isn’t that hard, to be honest).
Character to boo: Vila is a bit thick for a second successive week. Opening the shuttle doors was stupid. Forgetting the corridor number could have been fatal to Blake. Staying alive definitely seems too complicated for Vila this week (to paraphase Avon from “Blake”).
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face / Hair: Tom Chadbon (Grant / The Ginger Mercenary) was Duggan in the classic Doctor Who serial “City Of Death”, which was filmed around six months after this. He was also in an episode of Out Of The Unknown, in which his moustache definitely looked ginger, but don’t tell Paula I said that, or she’ll chase me around with a Welsh Street Sign next time she sees me. Chadbon was also in Casino Royale for 18 seconds or something like that and in various episodes of “Casualty” for a bit longer. He appeared naked in something in the 70s, but you’ll have to ask Paula about that one!
Best exchange: “VILA: “Allow me. You see - the old magic's still there.” AVON: “The old ego, too.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Being Stupid

* The wearing of Ginger Wigs is optional for this rewatch.
Vote Og.

Do you want to tell me about Anna?

The thing I have forsworn to Grant may never be held by your denials.

I wonder who he'd look like if he wore a ginger wig.

My telly is fine. It's more to do with the background of the set in Out Of The Unknown, and my comment (in all innocence) about his moustache looking ginger and Paula's outraged reaction.

After that, the comments of Space Dispatcher and myself were far from innocent, as we decided to wind up Paula, something that has survived at least 3 iterations of this forum Shock Grin

Cold! You don't know the meaning of the word cold!
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of your window!!

Been there - and it's not funny. But a B7 rewatch should dull the pain. Stick with it!

OK,rebels. This is what happens when you call the Federation's bluff. Not a good idea.

Ah, but you know me, I don't like cold at all, but I don't want Paula's ginger friend to get frozen and Avon getting frustrated if they can't succeed in that job.

Yes, solium radiation is such a useful resource.

Sorry to hear of the dental ordeal, OvZ. I had that twice plus oral surgeries 4 times! I'll be thinking of you. Hope you get a good night's sleep- that always helps! Cheers.
