  1. The look on Avon’s face when ORAC said “Vila weighs 73 kilos”, the long pause, the slow reach for the gun – this is the finest comedic moment in all of Blakes 7! I’m sure that Paul Darrow knew exactly what he was doing.

    A thoroughly enjoyable episode, thanks largely to John Savident effortlessly sliding from hubristic pride to infantile glee to murderous revenge.
