UK Rewatch - B12 The Keeper
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Twelve – The Keeper (Carry On Space Camping)
The date: Tuesday, June 21st, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which someone actually notices that Jenna is a beautiful woman. Unfortunately, it’s the head of the local Rent-A-Tribe from the tents of Goth (I assume the caravans of Goth would have cost too much). Meanwhile, the search for Star One continues, Vila gets to play the fool, the S-shaped tree appears (which is still there and still instantly recognisable), and Avon and Cally have a major lovers tiff.

Episode in a word: Intense (since In Tents would be two words).
Characters to cheer: Gola* is rather wonderful, with Bruce Purchase ideal casting for this somewhat larger-than-life role. And, for once, Travis is one step ahead of Servie, rather than the other way around.
Character to boo: Cally, for stopping Avon from shooting down Servalan’s ship, which happened to contain Travis. That would have saved a whole load of hassle in the next episode.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Not long before this, Bruce Purchase (Gola) was the Pirate Captain in the Doctor Who serial “The Pirate Planet”. He even had a Robot Space Parrot. I kid you not.
Best line: “I may not kill you after all. A lifetime with Gola would be very educational for you.” Just beats: “Don't leave me here, at least leave me a torch. I don't like the dark. I like to see what I'm scared of.”

Vote Og.

It's Blake's 7's take on King Lear.
But Servie and Travis appear.
Gola, romancin', take's Jenna dancin'
But I doubt that she'll spare him a tear.

I look behind me, what do I see? A pair of golden wings seem to be attached to me.

This is the episode that I missed first time round back in 1979 as I was in hospital having Daughter no. 2. They didn't have TVs on the ward back then so I had to wait for the video's to come out.
Just getting ready now. Tea, biccies and a bar of choccie.
Cold! You don't know the meaning of the word cold!
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of your window!!

Sounds good to me, littlesue. What I ought to have is some grapes, in honour of Servalan munching her way through them in her 'tent'. Can you have tents underground? And why would you?

Hello All. Jenna gets the attention she richly deserves. Too bad it had to be Gola. Or Brian Blessed light.

I'm convinced Bruce Purchase got the part because we had already used Brian Blessed.

It's fun trying to identify all the cultural influences in the sets and costumes in this one.

Cally is perhaps the only person that can tell Avon no.

Tents, jewelry, clothing- a mix of Viking, Hebrew (their talismans) and Arabic or some undisclosed Middle Eastern country. A real mix.

Is that because she said yes to him? Smile

I suspect it was essentially what was left on the rack in the costume department.

Don't forget the Anglo-Saxon. And calling themselves Goths. Quite a mess, in fact.

That rather nice computer expert is wearing that nice top of his. I may may have mentioned in passing that it is nice and soft to touch.

I'm not here, as they say. But hope to join you all next week, when my self-imposed 12-month rewatch moratorium will finally expire. Have a great rewatch and mind the handstands!
Really don't mind if you sit this one out...

I can't get the size ratio on that shot of them outside the tents.

I have some tea, earl grey, hot...with a slice of lemon. Would that help?

Who had Gola in the pool for the first male character to call Jenna Beautiful?
