Why Del Grant's stuffed elephant, of course. I also have a photo of Gareth Thomas holding same elephant. So that must be Rojephant.

Avon Smiling
And could Roj Bear have anything to do with Bear Avon, the little teddy bear in full leather?
 
Lurena
The episode is Deliverance in which Avon becomes a legend and so does his jacket.
And in which Roj Bear does not go unnoticed.

AVON: I have a new jacket! What do you think of it, Blake? It has pockets for tools and a special one on top …

i.imgur.com/biF82tw.jpg

BLAKE: Isn’t it a bit gaudy?
AVON: But it is practical ...

i.imgur.com/9C5o91N.jpg

JENNA: Your Jacket? I’d say, bear in mind that it is supposed to be practical.

MEEGAT (startled by Roj’s presence, made a slip): And Meegat speaks his name … Lord Bear

I guess so OSP, but you should ask Littlesue about that, she took the duty to examine it last weekend.
However, she was so impressed with the garment that she did not notice the presence of one of its users!

How did I not spot him?
I have checked the photos that Dearest took, and that sneaky Roj Bear is not there. He must have been hiding.
And BTW, THAT jacket is really nice and soft to touch Grin
Cold! You don't know the meaning of the word cold!
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of your window!!

In the episode Orac radiation sickness affects some of the crew.
Avon would be the last to admit that he is quite ill. A Teddy can come in handy then! (or is it that Roj Bear uses Kerr Avon for his own purpose …)

i.imgur.com/9y6InSg.jpg

Blake: Radiation sickness? Your Teddy? Are you feeling well?
Avon: Yes, my Teddy is feeling ill…

i.imgur.com/0BHoMVn.jpg

There you are! Cally’s device proves it; Roj Bear is radioactive.

i.imgur.com/ymdSC9h.jpg

Poor little bear, but a few decontaminant drugs and you’ll be better soon!

i.imgur.com/O4M51eY.jpg

What do you mean “you’re looking much better”? My Teddy is feeling better!

i.imgur.com/V9nJtBb.jpg

Here is where the friendship Roj Bear - Orac starts;
Avon’s try to see if Roj Bear fits into Orac. ('scientific experiment' on the bear’s request )

Oh yes, Roj Bear appears to be familiar with the theory of molecular reduction!
To be specific, stabilized atomic implosion.
Later on Roj shares his knowledge with his new friend Orac, in case you're wondering where Orac's knowledge came from in the episode Gambit.
With a little bit of reduction and a hammock the bear finds a comfortable place in Orac's interior.
Brace yourself, this can cause problems...

Roj Bear is back for series B!
Enjoy!

The fabulous episode Redemption is full of hints about the plot.
You may not have noticed them, but from now on you will!

The prediction (hint outlined in red)
AVON Slow or fast, it will still look the same.

i.imgur.com/lf1CFIK.jpg

The configuration of the stars. (Ursa Minor-once again)
AVON Look at it, Blake. Look at the configuration of the stars.

i.imgur.com/zgmH0fP.jpg

Waking the bear to make Orac function again (there is a team, see Orac episode)
AVON Now then, are you going to function or are you not?

i.imgur.com/sS4EHVs.jpg

Who saved the day?
BLAKE Well, what happened? (Laughs, walks over to Orac)

SHADOW

i.imgur.com/WBIe8lc.jpg

Blake seeks the help of the Terra Nostra to fight the Federation, but this criminal organization controls the deadly drug Shadow. It needs a brave bear to discover the link between the Terra Nostra and the Federation! And also to provide the poor lonesome telepath Cally with a soulmate.

If only noticed … Foreshadowing the fate…
i.imgur.com/6AoYbcn.jpg

Gan(after consultation with the costume designer): Avon insisted on having a breast pocket in this costume. Any idea why?
i.imgur.com/uvsgL0u.jpg

We see a disappointed Roj Bear in swim shorts (after the Zondar guards are thrown into the pond): I thought we were going for a swim too…
i.imgur.com/OR6E3K4.jpg

To make everyone believe in the Moon Discs' telekinetic abilities, and to make Cally happy, the tough bear makes the Moon Disc move, using one of Avon's proddy tools!

It’s a foggy morning in Surrey. The kids were a pain to get off to school on time. But I am now sipping coffee and being thoroughly entertained by the amazing adventures of Roj Bear and moved by Lurena’s tribute to Paul Darrow. Thank you Lurena! You are a star.

Lurena, considering how the story ends for our favourite humans, I am now beginning to worry about the fate of Roj Bear...
How did it come to this?! You made me care! For Roj Bear!
Yes, I am aware that I am a poet and therefore I DID know it but you must ensure the safety of our furry friend...
I may lose sleep over this... Smile

Weapon, ah this is an excellent episode!

Since Roj Bear has a good relationship with Orac, he is well informed about the developments in the field of weaponry.

See here what happened in the background to protect Avon's life (and the lives of the crew).

The Teddy kept a close eye on the events and even dressed himself stylishly according to the theme of the episode with the Collar of Doom.

i.imgur.com/r5KqYvc.jpg

Don't ask how he acquired the defensive device, after all it's B7, and the bear clearly had more sources, connections and data.

Blake (somewhat irritated): Was it really necessary to bring your teddy?
Avon: So what?

When Travis marked the crew, Roj Bear managed to aim and nullify the effect of IMIPAK from an adjacent hidden niche with his KAPIMI (Key And Projector Impact Mediation Instrument) !

Roj Bear! Finally he is back!

We have come to the episode of Horizon!
Have you ever wondered who really saved the day?

The episode starts with some interesting footage; we see respectively Vila and Jenna mixed with a starry sky.
Actually, there is a forgotten image that recently surfaced from a dusty storage:

i.imgur.com/ZIha8qU.jpg

Thigh-high boots not only give you a sexy look, and if you wear a silver tunic without pockets, they are perfect for storing a teddy bear!

i.imgur.com/ruKvvrG.jpg

Avon can act very tough, but it is Roj Bear who hits the targets!

i.imgur.com/HkAe8Bu.jpg

How come Avon missed Blake?
Here is the answer!
A bear jump against Avon’s arm, reason unknown, but worth a guess and/or a discussion.

i.imgur.com/iImHfp2.jpg

Not a word of gratefulness.
Why is it so hard to say “thank you” ? Is that because there is any doubt about the savior?
Cally and Jenna apparently have no doubts!

I've noticed that! I caused me cramps from laughter. The Observatory Visits are fabulous!
Besides, I assume Kerr Avon may be displeased with the idea:

Nooooooo! That's something one shouldn't even do to the teddy bear of one's worst enemy!
In particular, I don't want to be held responsible for bearicide. It's true, there was a bear head in the Observatory strip, but that was just along the lines of the 'heads only' nature of the strip where no-one has a body (with the exception of Groucho because a floating bird's head would have been too small and wouldn't immediately convey the idea of a cockatoo).

I was reading this thread when one of my brothers walked by. He glanced at my screen and immediately gasped, “Why is there a decapitated teddy bear?!” I told him I was on the Blake’s 7 forum and he nodded and left like that alone explained everything. Grin

Pressure Point…

Roj Bear: “Can we skip this episode please?

Even the most imperturbable of fans talk about tissues when it comes to watching this episode.
And so does the usually self-controlled Roj Bear as he was fond of the Gentle Giant whose name we better not mention in full when the teddy Roj Bear is around.

i.imgur.com/Sm985e2.jpg

You may be of opinion that Avon, as well as his teddy, are not of the caring kind, but I think you may be wrong. Here is a never before published image which shows the both mourning O.L.A.G.G..A..N. (and providing tissues for all crew members)

i.imgur.com/W49XZOz.jpg

Roj Bear: “Alright, alright, you want proof that I took part in this episode? Well then, here goes.

One should not run over the Forbidden Zone with a teddy hidden in your clothes!
Here is a screenshot of Roj Bear who got dropped during the run…

i.imgur.com/nGORm8P.jpg

… and then the consequence!

i.imgur.com/iw62eac.jpg

Avon didn’t want to risk dropping his teddy a second time, so Roj had to pass the horizontal bars by himself which he accomplished effortlessly

i.imgur.com/tG0yzUp.jpg

Roj Bear was the first to find out that Central Control was fake, an illusion, just an empty room.

i.imgur.com/3lCjBQT.jpg

And all that effort led to the dead of G...A...N..., an empty flight console chair, regret and Blake’s need to look for an uninhabited planet on which he can do his thinking.

For sure, Roj Bear will not look for a place to think other than in Avon’s cabin!

Trial…
Was Roj Bear involved?
Sure he was!

Blake was giving Zen instructions and Avon was listening in the entryway.
Unseen by Avon, Blake secretly took Roj Bear for some help and company.

i.imgur.com/LhrpVKv.jpg

Look at that! Blake took Avon’s teddy down with him.
Blake had taught Roj Bear how to send out signals, in other words, Blake was going to use him as a homing bea(r)con.

i.imgur.com/KDbnBC4.jpg

Blake wasn't paying close attention, so he gave the philosophical flea the opportunity to steal the homing bea(r)con…

i.imgur.com/utxoRcs.jpg

… Zil showed Blake where to find his stuff. Fortunately, Roj Bear was not absorbed by the Host !

i.imgur.com/fD31E5u.jpg

Once back on board the Liberator Blake considered keeping Roj Bear for himself.
Blake: “Avon, your teddy did his job well, it’s a great gadget.”

i.imgur.com/8xftXlE.jpg

Now Avon's strange hand gesture has finally been explained.
Avon: “I know it will be hard for you, but give me my Roj Bear back please?”

i.imgur.com/cUBED0h.jpg

Avon was overjoyed, his little bear was safely back with him.
However, Roj Bear had to promise that he never ever go out with the eponymous hero again.
Avon: “That was very naughty, but you are still my bearo!”
