From darkest Hinckley comes
one of Blakes 7s darkest moments:
On Easter Saturday, the day the new Dr Who first aired, we bring
you an eggstraordinary Eastercon and Wobblevision production of
Inspired as usual by Emma Peel
With ideas poached from Chris Blenkarn
In the hope of getting a new egg timer, Avon and Vila drive
shuttle down to Malodar to meet Eggrorian.
This shuttle is really cosy,
says Vila (left).
Its a good job I can trust you.
You know youre safe with me, leers Avon.
Avon and Vila meet Eggrorian, an egg-head,
and his sidekick Pinder,
but fail to spot Servalan hatching a plot behind the pillar.
Eggrorian lets Avon play with his new egg
Ooo, er, says Avon.
Avon and Vila rush back to Scorpio to tell
the crew the good news.
Eggsasperated, Avon tries to convince the
rest of the team (Tarrant slumped in chair, Dayna looking bored,
Soolin stroking her beard and Vila youve already met) what
a super egg timer hes found, and all it will cost them is
Orac. The crew think hes cracked.
Tarrant decides to ask Orac about Eggrorian
and Pinder, and discovers Pinder is a lot younger than he looks.
Must be a bad diet, too much cholesterol, he thinks.
Back on the planet:
Are you sure thats Orac? asks Eggrorian.
Of course, says Avon. You know you can trust me.
On the way back in the shuttle, Avon
tells Vila that he has given Eggrorian the fake Orac. Vila is shocked.
And I thought you were so trustworthy, he says.
You aint seen nothing yet, thinks Avon.
