trevor travis
The episode: (1.12) Something Of Value by Terry Nation
The date: Wednesday, April 6th, 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):

Letting in a guy with a gun who doesn't give any straight answers - haven't they not yet learned their lesson?

You are lucky to have speedway near to you. Ours went a few years back.

I trust no one. Is it cos they are all middle class?

I presume he's an advance scout from one of the groups... stockpilers no doubt.

Anyone of any worth would have bedding at the least with them

Abby is not middle class - she's definitely upper class. She had servants!

did she have servants? i thought it was just a cleaning type lady. I'd say she's lower upper (if that makes sense) definitely not 'old money'.

In a house like that they'd be better off keeping the food in an attic. especially apples or potatoes etc - they prefer dry not damp.
 
Nixxie
they could dry some things out on front of a fire - flour especially.

If he had written in 2020, they would have a lorry full of loo paper.

you can grow pinapples & citrus here in the south - but you'd need a nice warm orangery & the petrol to grow it (plus seed) I think he's right there. tea we can grow here, but again you'd need the plants.

I'd be alright - Fawley refinery is about 30 miles from me - I'd go pinch a tanker or two from there *LOL*

Hmmm, maybe I should get some tea and cocoa before the next pandemic strikes.

Problem is, I haven't got any green fingers. I even managed to kill a tillandsia...
 
Nixxie
Why are they not siphoning the petrol out already? they must have summat to put it into, even if it's buckets & bathtubs!!
