Peter Davison: This was one of the few times we went on location filming, in my time at least. The only other occasion was when we went to Amsterdam for…a show I can’t remember. Not a great start!
Peter Davison: I think the reason we went to Lazarotte was because John Nathen Turner wanted to go there on holiday, don’t know if you remember Fiona?
Mark Strickson: I think it was because he wanted to get all the men in shorts!
Fiona Cummings: nowadays we wouldn’t be allowed to film on that terrain.
Peter Davison: Fiona, I don’t think we were allowed to film there then!
Nicola Bryant: Sort of, quick! Now!
Mark Strickson: Now Fiona, I’m going to ask a question that perhaps I should have asked in rehersals, or perhaps before then.
Peter Davison: Maybe before you took the part!
Mark Strickson: Indeed. What was that sign [triangle]? Did it have any meaning? The triangles?
Fiona Cummings: Of course it did!
Peter Davison: You explain it in this story!
Mark Strickson: Do I?
Nicola Bryant: Yes! You do!
Peter Davison: That’s Dallas Adams…was actually American wasn’t he? Not going mad, he was American.
Fiona Cummings: No. No he wasn’t.
Peter Davson: He wasn’t? Alright, I am going mad.
Nicola Bryant: No, we’re all faking it!
Nicola Bryant: One of the first bits of advice Fiona gave me I remember was ‘just keep watching Peter’!
Peter Davison: And you’ll learn so much! *laughs*
Nicola Bryant: That’s why I was hounding you! I know you thought I was stalking you but…
Peter Davision: Well obviously her mother married a toy boy! Perfectly understandable.
Mark Strickson: He [Howard] never puts a top on, one for the girls, these episodes I think.
Peter Davsion: I love this scene just coming up, you see here? The TARDIS appearing? This was about six thirty in the morning and it was a nudist beach!
Fiona Cummings: Alright! I had chosen it at eight thirty in the evening! I didn’t know it was a nudist beach!
Peter Davison: Come on!
Nicola Bryant: Excuses!
Peter Davison: It was full of naked Germans!
Nicola Bryant: He was the one who came to rescue me, in this scene we’re about to see.
Peter Davison: Nicola, if I remember there were about twenty five naked Germans who came to rescue you when you jumped off that boat!
Nicola Bryant: The joke is that I couldn’t swim.
Peter Davison: Couldn’t you?
Nicola Bryant: No. Not when I got the job.
Fiona Cummings: I didn’t know that!
Nicola Bryant: And I remember JNT saying to me ‘can you swim’. And I though, oh no, I’ve read about these sorts of things.
Peter Davison: Like ‘can you ride a horse’.
Nicola Bryant: Exactly! And I said ‘why’ and he said ‘well because you have to drown in this scene’.
Peter Davison: Well that’s easy!
Nicola Bryant: That’s what I said! That’s exactly what I said!
Peter Davison: Remarkable balancing act; Kamelion is standing up in this scene.
Peter Davison: Woah, who’s that babe!
Mark Strickson: You didn’t say that when I came in with my shorts.
Peter Davison: I’ve been looking forward to your shorts.
Peter Davison: Nice shorts Mark.
Mark Strickson: Thank you.
Fiona Cummings: Good legs Mark!
Mark Strickson: Thank you darling.
Nicola Bryant: Mmm, lovely legs!
Mark Strickson: I was waiting for somebody to say something nice about me!
