    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Reused Material: At the end of the episode, when the Liberator is launching the plague beacon, the footage is obviously recycled from Spacefall as the Liberator still has the London attached.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Bellfriar: And just who are you?
        Blake: Well, according to the Federation, I'm a political criminal. You may have heard of me. My name is Blake.
        Bellfriar: Yes. But then, we're absent-minded scientists, you see. In fact, we've forgotten your name already.

      • Tynus: So that's the way it is?
        Avon: Well, let's just say I did you a favour and now I'm collecting.
        Vila: Nice. When Avon holds out the hand of friendship, watch his other hand. That's the one with the hammer.

      • Vila: Nerves getting a little frayed?
        Avon: There are a quarter of a million volts running through that converter. I make one false move, I'll be so crisped up what's left of me won't fit into a sandwich.
        Vila: I'm a vegetarian. Thanks for the offer, though.

      • Vila: You don't have a lot of time for Blake, do you?
        Avon: I could never stand heroes.
        Vila: A quarter of a million volts and you're putting your hand in?
        Avon: Ah, but that is self-interest. We need that crystal. Blake takes risks to help other people. Sometimes people he doesn't even know. One day that great big bleeding heart of his will get us all killed.

      • Avon: He's a friend of mine.
        Vila: I always knew you had a friend. I used to say to people, I bet Avon's got a friend somewhere in the galaxy.
        Avon: And you were right. That must be a novel experience for you.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • 61 Cygni: The star identified as the source of the virus in this episode is a real astronomical object. It is a double star visible to the naked eye and was the first star to which a distance was triangulated. At the time the series was made, it was thought to have a planet, but this claim was later refuted.
