trevor travis
The episode: (1.8) Spoil Of War by MK Jeeves (aka Clive Exton)
The date: Wednesday, March 9th, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

No spoilers please, because we have some Horizon members who are watching this for the first time in ages and don’t remember much of it. As a result, I will only post my review of the episode after it has ended.

Link for anyone who doesn't have this on DVD (this have disappeared off Dailymotion, but are still on YouTube):

I was thinking about last week & that they inferred that stocks are running low in this part of the country - though I don't quite calculate why... if there are only 100k people living in the entire UK there should still be canned goods in warehoues all over the place. - maybe those two ladies only had houses & no hops nearby?

Are we going to be at Hampton court again? It was odd to see it empty - had the National Trust (or whoever runs it currently) not taken it over by that point?

Hoarding by the selfish antagonistic groups?

Don't plow under a tree. You need full sun, especially in England.

This must be a couple of years before Chris Tranchell (Paul) appeared in Doctor Who: The Invasion Of Time as Andred.

I'm sure there must be books on animal husbandry & farming - find yourself a library & get reading. Plus you'd need to find artificial fertilizer as they don't have enough animal stock for manure.
