Can't remember which, newspaper it was now - it's just that it seemed so out of place for the character of Avon to be doing that!!!

For some reason the, "SARCOPHAGUS", episode written by, "TANITH LEE" is one, that you either love or, hate!!!

Personally, it's one of my favourites but, seeing some of it actually rehearsed in the BBC tv centre (23rd Jan 1980), TC6 - guess, I'm rather biased.

However, I also like it because, it is very different to the rest of the series and, the only eisode to have no other cast except for the crew of the "LIBERATOR"!!!

SO WHY DOES THIS SPLIT FANS???


Tanith is a powerful writer.
I love her work!
I would have rather seen Soolin and Avon together though
Paul did not agree with me on this one
He admonished me like I was a child saying:
oh no no Avon and Cally not Avon and Soolin
I held in a laugh as best I could

I have to agree with Rhiannon on this one.
Although Avon and Cally were compatable, Avon and Soolin were a better match, at least physically if not mentally, (although Soolin was the most intelligent member of the crew after Avon).

Continuing the dicussion from the Animals thread, this episode seems to be either loathed or loved by the fans. There appears to be no middle ground. Obviously, this is because it is such an unusual episode, bringing serious fantasy elements into a science fiction programme. I personally dislike it for that reason, but I can see why others like it for the same reason.

I agree with this point. I like the shoot-'em-up aspects of Blake's 7. The odd episodes that tried to take the series somewhere different like the Web and Sarcophagus just ended up being dull. They are always the episodes you want to skip past to get to a decent episode - but feel you have to watch for continuity sake.

I still think The Web is the worst episode ever. Sarcophagus isnt good though.
