Evening all! Frown
Today's episodes are my favourites from S1. (Although I think my absolute favourite of the whole lot is Dreamgate in S2.)
Every time I took the elevator in the Kew Bridge Premier Inn during the Cygnus Alpha cons, I was heavily tempted to shout, "Talky door! Talky door!"

Good evening TT. How's things? Ready for another dose of silliness aboard the Camden Lock?

Is Soolin looking lovely today?

Hello, Huggy. I think my favourite might be the giant baked bean, but Talky Doors comes close.

Accessing the Xenon base shower room cam, I presume?

What gets me every time is, 'Arrange the cubes in order of yellowness.'

Soolin's not still in the shower, surely? For 45 years?

Howdy doo. Talky door and the giant baked bean have not stayed in my memory. Only thing I can remember is liking the show.

I wonder if they already planned to have an episode with the red shiny robots of Vortis at this time.

Hello. Haggis in oven, and the 'neep' or swede has alas turned out to be a turnip in the English sense of the word. Arranged in order of yellowness, swedes are yellower than turnips, but uncut in the shop they look similar, and a turnip must have got into the swede pile.

I won't ask you what shape the turnip is. (Obligatory Blackadder reference. Pfft )

You really don't want to know about them. Not nice.

Yes, and except for the redness, in a very Ultraworld-like episode.

This one is a boring turnip shape, sadly.

My veggie delivery brought me a beetroot EXACTLY the shape of the Minecraft ones.

Jeffers is very like a lad I work with. That'll cheer him up when I tell him. I usually say he looks like something from the 1970s.

Hello OSP, Anne. Hope you're OK.

That 'data mosaic' sounds like some hardware implementation of Data Mining, which is actually quite a cool concept. I love the astonishing amount of world building they did for a comedy. The space squash, the data mosaic etc.

Would that be a rather cubic beetroot?
(I don't know much about Minecraft, only what I learned from having to translate a book about Minecraft programming. The only thing I remember are the mooshrooms.)

Maybe they are turnip-flavoured - ?

That campfire effect is brilliant.
