45th Anniversary rewatch - B9 Countdown
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Nine - Countdown (Carry On Ginger Mercenary) *
The date: Tuesday, May 30th, 2023
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”).
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face / Hair: Tom Chadbon (Grant / The Ginger Mercenary) 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 with a Welsh Street Sign next time she sees me. 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!
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.
Vote Og.

It's not what it looks like, Blake, I was just helping Grant
find some things in the storage room and the lights went
out... we tripped... and landed on the floor together... and....
WELL AT LEAST HE'S NOT MY COUSIN!

Since this episode features another funny line delivered in a dry fashion by the wonderful Gareth Thomas, I think we need to reassess Blake as the funnyman in B7.

Vetnor was fine until he dropped that cute proddy tool and Grant gave him the look of death. LOL

Hi All, I'm very sorry, I can't join you this time.
I have to visit a friend whose husband passed away yesterday.

Actually, rather cool all the day - but now we have some glorious sunshine.

Such sad news. This is what friends are for, isn't it? Sometimes it's hard to know what to say, but just being there will help.

These opening scenes of explosions and fighting are quite well done.

Don't let it go to your head. She's married to me, so she thinks every other man is handsome.
