Really? Far more logical than the way in which the rubbish re-make approached the issue.
I prefer episodes where they don't carry guns but get round them as in 'Gone Away' * where Jenny snatches a gun carried by the vigilanties at the shop.

*apart from Tom Price hunting
Yes, but that was in the very early days before the main group realised that they could not be tooled up, because most other people would be. Even then, more than a few episodes were predicated on the main protagonists being outgunned in one way or another. In the overall scenario of the series, not being armed if you can be is pretty foolish.

Both Acting and Writing credits are very impressive, such as writer of the superb HTV series, "Children Of The Stones".

"The Feathered Serpent", was excellent, and his "Terry And June" scripts were good fun, also "Cloppa Castle" was inventive and witty.

A good Acting turn in "Doctor On The Go" too.

Arnold Yarrow (perhaps best known as Bellal in "Death To The Daleks") wrote for various series such as "Softly Softly" and was script editor as well.

Jeremy Lloyd, who is another one with a long CV in both writing and acting.
