40th Anniversary Rewatch - C7 Children Of Auron
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Seven - Children Of Auron
The date: Tuesday, August 14th, 2018
The time: 7.45pm UK time

Starring Paul Darrow, Jan Chappell, Michael Keating, Steven Pacey, Josette Simon, Peter Tuddenham and Peter Tuddenham as Avon's 7, plus Jacqueline Pearce as Servie, Jan Chappell's twin sister as Zelda, the son of Doctor Who, and lots and lots of babies.

In which Servie wipes out a whole planet because she wants babies and both Avon and Jarvik are out of the equation; and she's also developed a baby IMIPAK that she uses on two of her officers.

Notes for drinking game: Under pressure, Avon goes to Auron, despite knowing it's not that sensible a thing to do. The Liberator is taken over. It's the fifth time it's been boarded in seven episodes. Cally is not taken over, although she's certainly persuaded to come back to her home planet.

A sister driven into desperate terms,
Whose worth, if praises may go back again,
Stood challenger on mount of all the age
For her perfections: but my revenge will come.

For me, the most interesting part of this episode is what happens between Avon and Cally (while Auron plot hurts my brain, and not in a good way).

And this is kinda symbolic of their relationship at this point. Wink

Not a good episode for Cally. Her entire home planet dies (Why? What about all the immune senior citizens?). Also, she learns that Avon is still crazy about some dead woman. And she loses her sibling (whom we've just met) due to misplaced noble act by said sibling - now that reminds me of a future episode. Who borrowed from whom, I wonder? Parker from Boucher, probably. Smile

Also, this happened! Now I have no doubts about Dayna getting Avon into that cave in "Aftermath". Smile

I don't think Avon's going to Auron qualifies as mistake under pressure. He concedes to his humanity and humanity of his crew: it's different. Plus he does it for Cally. And he takes precautions: keeps Libbie in orbit, keeps Orac on Libbie.
And them coming to help Auron was key in saving Auron's future. It was the right thing to do. I actually see it as a fine moment for Avon as he concedes to democracy despite grumbling about it. Blake was always pushing for his way while Avon could be persuaded by other opinions, especially in Season 3 (and when it wasn't about Blake).

But I thought THAT would qualify: Avon putting his tunic on backwards under stress of being sick. Smile See the cut in front? It wasn't there before!

But then I checked screencaps with earlier appearances of the Silver Tunic, and it didn't have the cut on the back either!

So seems like Avon put in on right, but something happened to the Silver Tunic between 2nd and 3rd season, which resulted in the cut in front. Was it ripped there? By what/whom? Wink

I have thoroughly investigated and checked this particular item of clothing. Apart from being nice and soft to touch, in case I may have never have mentioned this fact, it's possible that the 'cut' was inserted because a certain rather nice computer expert had put on a little weight!
Gary and I speculated on the reason for this sudden addition whilst sipping tea at Smallspace one year....but maybe it was just easier to slip over ones head at the time!!
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I suspected as much but was baffled by the fact that the garment looked basically like a huge sack which should be one-size-fits-all. Smile

It's similar to Blake's huge sleeves in this regard. That one should have fit anyone.

Yes, it looks like the 'broadness' across the chest/lower shoulders needed to be a bit less tight (as someone who has had to alter cosplay outfits for people who have got fatter/older in the past. Either that or make-up/food got on it & that was the only way of disguising it?

Just getting ready...tea, biccies, choccie.
Oh yes, seeing as Ronald Leigh Hunt is in this episode, do I have to hum the Freewheelers Theme?

Agreed. When Cally says " for love if Him?" it makes my blood run cold and, I suspect, Avon's too. Beginning of the end for Cally. She is isolated here despite the twin reunion.

Sadly I have already started the drinking game. 2 pints in my local cos I was so sad for Cally in this episode.

It was filmed down here and they used Southern TV's boat The Southerner (and my dear old dad got some of the scenery to line my Wendy House. Written on the back of the large panels of board was 'The Freewheelers'..and then the name of the episode and the scene). I loved that house..we are talking about the 60s here Grin

Hello everyone! As regards to Avon's silve tunic. It seems in order to save money on wardrobe they took the original silver tunic and gathered it in at the shoulders and cut a small slit on the chest to make it look a bit differently than in seeries 2. I can see, being the BBC, that they would do that. Otherwise, they usually only recycled the old costumes onto new guest characters!

Oh I see! So they just tried to pass the old costume as a new one. Just like with Travis II but the opposite. Smile
