41st Anniversary Rewatch - B10 Voice From The Past
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Ten – Voice From The Past (Carry On Being Stupid)
The date: Tuesday, June 11th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Del-10 sounds too good to be true and sure enough the crew never get there; Travis wants his Mummy; Ven Glynd has had a head transplant; Blake is taken over and therefore goes along with a nutty scheme to take the Federation to court (yes, that’s really going to work, isn’t it?); and the actress playing Governor Le Grand finds a different way of pronouncing Servalan each time she says it. B7 is the best show ever, but even it can’t avoid the odd naff episode. At least, we get to RENOUNCE lots of stuff during the rewatch, while there's the option of wrapping yourself in loo paper for anyone who's interested!

Episode in a word: Alliance.
Characters to cheer: Avon, because he wears that flowing, black shirt (especially included for Littlesue). Oh, and Servie completely steals the show on the screen at the end.
Characters to boo: Where to start? OK, let’s start with Vila. I prefer Vila to be portrayed with intelligence, but playing the idiot, to avoid being given the dirty jobs. Like in “Stardrive”, when he pretends to be drunk, so that he doesn’t have to work on the hull with only Slave’s forcefield protecting him from space. He’s had the odd stupid moment in both “Hostage” and “Countdown”, but here he’s very thick indeed, as he’s duped – more than once – by the controlled Blake. Then there’s Travis. In “Hostage”, his main motivation was to get hold of the Liberator. Here, he has control of the Liberator… and then teleports off it. And that’s before we get into all the Mummy stuff! As for, Governor Le Grand, her plan is batty and the portrayal by Barbara Knorr is… er... unusual, to be kind.
Recognisable Face: One of the main cast for a change. As most people know, Micheal Keating (Vila) was in “EastEnders” as a semi-regular character as the vicar. But he was also in a “Doctor Who” story. It was called “The Sun Makers” and was transmitted in December 1977, just a month before B7 began transmission. Furthermore, he played a rebel, while the story took place in a huge city where suppressants were pumped into the atmosphere. There, the comparison ends, because the rebellion is successful and there’s a happy ending.
Best exchange: CALLY: “What do we do?” AVON: “Locate and destroy it.” ORAC: “And restore Blake to his senses.” AVON: “The two don't necessarily follow.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Space Gambling

This was the first B7 episode I saw when I was younger (albeit not in its entirety). What an introduction.

Avon may be known for his leather outfits,
but only Jenna would wear leather and four inch heels to Yoga class.

Which is but one of the reasons we love her.
There was a young man
From Cork who got Limericks
And Haikus confused.

The only thing that makes this episode bearable is THAT flowing black shirt. (Thank you TT for thinking of me).

I know it's not a common opinion but this episode always cheers me up and makes me laugh. It's taking a p*** in a good old Monty Python style.

The posts here also made me laugh and cheered me up.

Hugbot - yeah, that or leaving a cat alone in the loo. Cool

TT - "RENOUNCE FLOWING BLACK SHIRTS!"
Stop it Blake, you are asking for it - "RENOUNCE FLOWING WHITE SHIRTS"! See how you like *that*!

JustBrad - Jenna is the coolest person in the room!

Lol, Hugbot!Grin
If only Blake’s crew had included the Andrex puppy, Travis would have been unravelled in an instant...

Travis in his bandages would not look out of place in The League of Gentlemen. He IS "Local"!

BBC: Sign on for a third season. RENOUNCE THE ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY.

The great redeeming feature of this episode is, as TT says, the appearance of Servalan on the big screen at the end. Very Big Brother and JP looks magnificent.

The first half of this episode is fine (apart from Vila taking several levels in dumbass - if that word's even allowed here), it's the second half where everything goes down the flusher. I can best describe this story as pizza schlock.
 
One Spare Part
I notice a B7 fan has written in to the Radio Times expressing her sadness at the loss of PD (also GT and JP). She asks what the chances are of the Beeb showing an episode in tribute. What ARE the chances?
