42nd Anniversary Rewatch - D3 Traitor
trevor travis
The episode: Derek Three – Traitor (Carry On Trooper Orac)
The date: Tuesday, October 20th, 2020
The time: 7.45pm UK time

A reminder of Season Derek drinking game, with a few additions:

Here’s the number of sips/swigs per each of these:
Avon is knocked unconscious 1
A scientist dies (per scientist) 5
A member of the main cast wears the same costume as last week (per costume) 2
There’s the sequence (or part of the sequence) of Scorpio landing / taking off at Xenon Base 3
Vila drinks something red (per scene) 10
Tarrant falls in love 5
Soolin shoots someone (per person) 5
Slave says “sorry” (each mention) 1
Each mention of “Sleer” 2
Avon laughs manically and/or smiles inappropriately 5
There’s a downbeat ending in sharp contrast to the jangly end theme 10
The final shot of the episode includes Paul Darrow 3
A member of the main cast is killed or stunned (per cast member) 1 bottle of wine / 1 can of beer

Back to Traitor, and we have a big mystery folks. Someone is going around in outrageous clothing like Servalan used to where, destroying portraits of Servalan, and speaking in a deep, husky version of Servalan’s voice. Just who could it be? Also, the Liberator wardrobe was clearly made of herculanium, survived in one piece, and landed on Helotrix. Oh, and we have a rebellion going on in the episode – although it’s not Avon’s lot, of course. After all, he’s already saved Teal and Vandor in “Death-Watch”, placing him ahead of Blake in number of planets saved.

Episode in a word: Suppressants.
Characters to cheer: Pretty much any of the supporting characters, especially the Federation officers. A combination of the superb writing of Robert Holmes and some top-notch acting from the guest cast.
Character to boo: Trooper Orac shows once again, while he might be able to take over other computers, he’s also a bit thick.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Oui.
Recognisable Face: Christopher Neame (Colonel Quute) was Skagra, the lead baddie in the 1979 Doctor Who serial “Shada”. Sadly, for Neame and the rest of the cast, a strike might the serial was never completed. But it’s seen plenty the light of day in many forms over the years.
Best exchange: VILA: “Blake would have been proud of you, you know.” AVON: “I know, but then he never was very bright.”

Blake's 7 will return in “Carry On Space Petrol Heads.”

Huggy, Brad...I once again managed not to get my keyboard wet...good try though Grin
I won't be able to join you tonight as my little Grandson is celebrating his 18th birthday today (where has the time gone?) so we are going out for a socially distanced meal tonight.
However, I would like to point out that the top that Mr D Tarrant is attired in, which formerly belonged to one rather nice computer expert, is actually very nice and soft to touch and has loads of press studs and velcro, which has to be smoothed out...something that PC and I did with great flair at Smallspace that year.......Grin
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Evening all! Oops

The supermarket around the corner now also sells a Mexican brand of beer - called Corona! Shock I wonder if they that will become a commercial success...

Instead, I have settled for Flens unleaded and so-called 'Flips' - similar to Wotsits, however, not made with cheese bugt peanut-flavoured.

Evening all. I’m not really here tonight- blame my incompetent attempts to organise (or not) my workload, but I thought I’d say hello anyway Smile

Three-quarters of Robert Holmes' B7 scripts have chess in them.

We've had Corona beer over in the UK for years - it was really cheap around March time!! Grin

Hi everyone - just passing through to say hello. Got stuff to do, so will catch up with the thread later. Enjoy!

Leaving you with this question: who wore it better, Avon or Tarrant?

Thank you! I'm always surprised that my artwork is appreciated by people who can really draw.

However, I am useless at chess.
