UK Rewatch - C2 Powerplay
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Two – Powerplay (Carry On Space Nurse)
The date: Tuesday, July 9th, 2024
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which the new curly-haired chap makes his first full appearance; Avalon has a new occupation and she dupes Vila, as he and Cally nearly become a bunch of spare parts; and Dayna shows how deadly she is, by killing a man with her knee and then throttling Mr Bronson… er, sorry… Section Leader Klegg to death.

Episode in a word: Convergence (the convergence of two separate A and B plots in the final few minutes – classic Terry Nation!).
Characters to cheer: Dayna continues to be rather wonderful. And Tarrant’s first full hour is one of his best - he’s a smart cookie and we’re left guessing to which side he’s on for most of the episode.
Character to boo: No-one is that dislikeable here, while I refuse to include Mr Bronson... er, sorry… Section Leader Klegg. But Vila is rather gullible, to say the least – although it’s no surprise and rather in character when he gets taken in by a pretty face or two.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Michael Sheard (Klegg) has been in just about everything: Star Wars, Doctor Who, you name it. But, of course, he played the evil creature in the universe… Mr Bronson in Grange Hill. The most scary teacher ever. It says much for the supreme acting talents of Michael Sheard, that within a few weeks, the whole nation was after his blood (following the death of pupil Danny Kendall) and then felt sorry that the old boy was leaving teaching after he turned a new leaf in the wake of Kendall’s death. They don’t make them like Michael Sheard any more. And in case you’re wondering from where you remember John Hollis (Lom) – it could well be Flash Gordon!
Best line: “I'm not very good with pain. It's not that I'm a coward or anything. It's just that I have a very low pain threshold. Hardly a threshold at all, actually.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Flashing
Vote Og.

Google 'Blake's 7 Powerplay Internet Archive'

if that doesn't work, Google Blake's 7 Aftermath Internet Archive and you should see a menu on IA for the next few episodes.

Phew! Hello all- just in time. We are starting to get rain from the hurricane Beryl. It skedaddled from the coast of Texas way up the Mississippi valley and is dumping what rain remains on us! There's even a flood watch- so exciting!

Almost as if they were trying to replace someone (but failed).

When I met Stephen Pacey at the seek locate destroy, I told him I didn’t like him for replacing Blake, but then said as I got older, a lot older, I realised Blake left on ha on accord and how god of an actor and played tarrant well,also told him I got James Herbert audiobooks with him narration

TT Please explain later how the crew wound up scattered so far apart that Liberator takes hours to reach them, when they all left Libby at about the same time, and Libby is the fastest ship in the galaxy.

You were talking to yourself using different voices.....

Vila: No, I was talking to myself using the same voice.

This little sequence with Vila talking to his 'mem' was nicked from a Tony Hancock sketch by all accounts. See ing as Mr N used to write for Mr H one can see how this sort of humour got inro B7
