42nd Anniversary Rewatch - B9 Countdown
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Nine - Countdown (Carry On Ginger Mercenary) *
The date: Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020
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”).
Recognisable Face / Hair: Tom Chadbon (Grant) 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 next year's Forever Avon convention with a Welsh Street Sign. 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!
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
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.

For those who don't know, this business with Welsh Street Signs started many years ago when Paula (BradPaula), TT, Spaceship Dispatcher, and I visited Harlech together.

We were walling towards the castle when TT made a slightly derogatory comment about Del Grant, turned to see Paula's reaction, and walked right into the sharp corner of a street sign cutting his forehead.

Nearly right. Apart from that Paula was wielding said Street Sign and I never even saw it move.

Shame! Ginger wigs and prawn cocktail crisps go together like Vila and soma.

In 1909 the Royal Navy began construction of its second series of submarines. The B series. The first of the class was the B1. There were 11 boats in all in the class, meaning that for a time, B7 was a Royal Navy vessel.

What a time to have a significant birthday! My nephew was 21 in May. He is chomping at the bit for a family celebration!

Instead of wearing a wig, I simply changed to a slightly older and more ginger version of my avatar!
