Collision Course

At the end of the episode, Barbara and Martin stand at a window. Martin is  wearing a skimpy robe, revealing an unnecessary amount of chest hair. He's  not making eye contact with Barbara, who is looking at him with concern.

Moonbase Alpha is on a collision course this week, ineluctably destined to crash into a giant pustulent planet. Or is it? Commander Koenig — overcome by the charms of Queen Margaret Leighton — doesn’t think so, and so he turns up to Main Mission in his pyjamas like a Moonie and threatens to gun down anyone who attempts to prevent the collision, including, upsettingly, our own Barbara. But — inevitably — it all turns out for the best, and we end our second episode in a row staring out the window contemplating the metaphysical metamorphosis we have wrought.
