UK Rewatch - B11 Gambit
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Eleven – Gambit (Carry On Space Gambling)
The date: Tuesday, June 11th, 2024
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Blake’s continuing attempts to find Star One are completely overshadowed by: (1) Avon and Vila going on a gambling spree with the help of baby Orac, (2) Servie as the Lady In Red, (3) Travis, who seems to be playing a wronged hero from a western. Now, where’s my chess set?

Episode in a word: OTT.
Characters to cheer: The Lady In Red. Servie is simply wonderful in the hands of Robert Holmes – pass that dictionary! Krantor and Toise are a great double act, while Avon and Vila trying to play innocent in the final scene is a hoot. Even the minor characters in this are terrific, such as the sadistic Klute, the scene-stealing Croupier, and of course, Servie's rather thick powder puff.
Character to boo: Blake for not killing Travis at the end – a decision that nearly ended in the galaxy being conquered by non-hairy aliens.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Faces: Aubrey Woods (Krantor) played the Controller in “Day Of The Daleks”, a Doctor Who serial from 1972. In that he's also under silver make-up. I’m sure I also recognise the voice of John Leeson (Toise) from somewhere. If he said “Master” or “Mistress”, it might help me remember where from! Let's ask Pasco if he knows.
Best line: “When the Federation finally cleans out this cesspit, I shall have that vulpine degenerate eviscerated with a small and very blunt knife.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Space Camping
Vote Og.

While I wasn't sad to miss last week's episode, this week I will greatly miss watching Gambit with you good people.
Instead, I shall be watching Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets as they kick off their latest tour in Stoke. Da dum chk chk

I wont be with you for this one. Not as exciting as OSP. It is my Gardening Club Meeting
I look behind me, what do I see? A pair of golden wings seem to be attached to me.

Hi littleSue, glad to see you, no Pringles for me, Assam tea though. Got 1 finger of chocolate twirl.
Got MIR scan Thursday but no appointments for 3 weeks with the consultants!
Sunday was awesome

Hello again. Golly. everyone's so BUSY atm. I hope you all have a great concert/meeting/performance, and we'll do our best to have a good time without you.

The Woman in Red tonight, then - carefully making sure she didn't end up being the Woman with Smears of Silver make-up from Krantor.
For once, Travis 2 is right - Jarriere is a waste of space as a henchman - only useful for needing to have the plot explained for us.

You attend 25 or more cons, and the nervousness goes away. I used to be timid, but not anymore!
