Survivors rewatch - 1.4 Corn Dolly
trevor travis
The episode: (1.4) Corn Dolly by Terry Nat... oh, actually it's by Jack Ronder
The date: Wednesday, February 9th, 2022
The time: 7.45pm UK time

No spoilers please, because we have some Horizon members who are watching this for the first time in ages and don’t remember much of it. As a result, I will only post my review of the episode after it has ended.

Decimas* for anyone who doesn't have this on DVD:

*or some other B7 character played by Deep Roy

Corn dolly is an interesting title - I used to make them at junior school. though I doubt anyone does these days due to industrialization of the harvest Sad

I had a lovely onion soup au gratin and am now munching on a bar of cow spot chocolate (black + white), ready for a fun rewatch...

Just as good that I didn't have any fish, if I remember this episode correctly...

Cow Spot chocolate? Just be sure it isn't a bar of Cow 'Pat' chocolate!

Shock No; it's designed to mimick the pattern of a Frisian cow.... more or less... actually, less...

these days with how modern cars are looked after by computer we'd be f***ed!! Hardly any cars would work.
Why are they not carrying can of petrol?
