42nd Anniversary Rewatch - C6 City At The Edge Of The World
trevor travis
The episode: Colin Six - City At The Edge Of The World (Carry On Space Thief)
The date: Tuesday, August 11th, 2020
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Vila is the hero, gets (and loses) the girl and saves the day; Colin Baker booms a lot in a role that was made for him and gets to wear far more many studs than Paul Darrow; and, after Servie’s refit of Space Command HQ last week, we find out what happened to the interiors of her office (the Keezarnians nicked them during the Intergalactic War, and painted them black).

Episode in a word: Vila.
Character to cheer: There’s only one person it could be. This is the perfect showcase for everyone’s favourite thief, and was apparently written after Michael Keating told Chris Boucher that his little girl had told him after watching an episode: “Daddy, you’re stupid”. Vila is the totally at the centre of the episode – and is brave when he needs to be and clever when he needs to be, without ever slipping out of character.
Character to boo: Tarrant’s a bit of a git to Vila at the start of the episode. I guess we should credit him for later realising that he was wrong.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: I think we all know Colin Baker (Bayban) was Doctor Who, while Valentine Dyall (Norl) was the Black Guardian in the same show. But let’s go for a less obvious one. Carol Hawkins (Kerril) was in two Carry On films, Carry On Abroad (1972) and Carry On Behind (1975), two of the better Carry On films from the 1970s.
Best line: Although there’s also the brilliant “Babe” dialogue, pride of place has to go to Vila’s monologue to two speechless Keezarnians delivered perfectly by the sublime Michael Keating: “Is that where we're going? It's miles away. I mean why couldn't I have teleported closer in?” [pause] “Hey? They say too much walking's bad for you, you know. Makes you go deaf. Look what it's done for you. Listen, sooner or later one of you's going to have to speak to me. Well, speak to me one of you! All right, that's it. No speak, no walk. My feet hurt and I didn't want to come anyway.” [sits down] “[Of] course, I'm totally lost, you realise that. Yes, of course you realize that. I don't suppose you'd consider taking me back to where you met me. No, of course you wouldn't. All right, you've talked me into it.” [gets up and walks]
Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Up The Space Maternity Ward.

As last year's cartoon already featured him, I went for something different this time. But as Brad said:

Still home waiting on the Covid test results. Watching Vila be heroic will cheer me up.
