45th Anniversary rewatch - D8 Games
trevor travis
The episode: Derek Eight – Games (Carry On Up The Quarry Yet Again)
The date: Tuesday, November 21st, 2023
The time: 7.45pm UK time

A reminder of the Season Derek drinking game, with one special addition for this episode:

Here’s the number of sips/swigs per each of these:
Avon is knocked unconscious 1
A scientist dies (per scientist) 5
A member of the main cast wears the same costume as last week (per costume) 2
There’s the sequence (or part of the sequence) of Scorpio landing / taking off at Xenon Base 3
Vila drinks something red (per scene) 10
Tarrant falls in love 5
Soolin shoots someone (per person) 5
Slave says “sorry” (each mention) 1
Each mention of “Sleer” 2
Avon laughs manically and/or smiles inappropriately 5
There’s a downbeat ending in sharp contrast to the jangly end theme 10
The final shot of the episode includes Paul Darrow 3
A member of the main cast is killed or stunned (per cast member) 1 bottle of wine / 1 can of beer
Someone is killed with a Mecronian knife 3

Back to the episode, and the crew go on a location visit to Winspit Quarry, only to find Servie is doing exactly the same thing. Meanwhile, Vila gets trod on and mounts a one-man rescue; Soolin is able to outshoot a quicker version of herself; Tarrant again proves that he can’t land a ship; and Orac starts an affair with one of Gambit's circuit boards.

Episode in a word: Games (yup, another episode which does exactly what it says on the tin).
Character to cheer: Vila, who proves to be a rather good one-man back-up squad.
Characters to boo: Tarrant and Dayna for walking into a very obvious trap – just as well Vila is around to save them (see above).
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Stratford Johns (Belkov) had a wide-ranging CV. He was famous for being in Z Cars, while he also appeared in the 1982 Doctor Who serial “Four To Doomsday”.
Best exchange: TARRANT: “Why should this middle-aged Federation professor want to help you, Avon?” AVON: “Because apart from being a brilliant geologist and an expert in mining techniques, he is also greedy, avaricious, and a crook.” VILA: “Has he got any faults?”

Blake's 7 will return in “Carry On Getting Sand In Your Pants”.

We'll miss you, Lurena. Hope the visit goes well.
You're still on the fake Pringles, eh, Sue? Whereas here at Fed HQ I have, of course, the real thing. Only wish I could share them (snigger).
Meanwhile, hello to all, and thanks for the images, Brad and Huggy. Great stuff.

Hello, I'm here, late as usual. I love this episode - and all the ones that follow it, right up to the end of the series.

Sorry to hear that things are not good, ORACvsZen, and hope your visit goes well, Lurena.

How come Avon knows all this stuff and nobody else does?.

Funny how we react to episodes differently. Most of these episodes from now leave my nerves jagged
