The Set: The Scene


If you’ve been exposed to the Earplug Adventures for long enough, it’s likely that you can recognise a scene by it’s set. Want to test yourself? Check out the following…

Here is an industrial adhesive applicator…

Any idea what this became? Yup, the much used Robot Freighter…

…that first appeared in Cold War, but has since turned up in all sorts of stories. But what about this?

Surely it could be only one thing: a mountain scene, where it’s probably snowing…

Well slap yourself on the forehead: of course it’s the four pissed-off monks fleeing Lemonstone in Return To The Museum Of Future Technology! Ah, but what about this making-of shot?

It’s a toughie, this one. Vague, to say the least. But could that be Hair-Trigger and Magnuss slightly separated from a group of unnamed earplugs? And might that be some form of communication panel on the wall? Yes, it is…

…which means that must be an excited Magnuss who has just learned that he and his beloved are trapped in the past – from the episode The Time Tamperer!

Finally, this time, take a dekko at this picture…

It’s a face mask. Now how on Earth could a face mask be considered a set? Well if you read The Missing, you might recognise a very similar face mask appear as…

…invading End Cap prison cells in which the populace of the museum were…er…imprisoned. In this case it’s two of the brave and resourceful Greenhorn Girls.

If you did pathetically badly, don’t worry: there’ll be another of these posts along in a short while. In between times, take advantage of the free PDF e-books that are easily available by clicking on the Earplug Adventures covers on the side bar. So you have no excuse: next time you’ll be better prepared. We’ll make an Earplugger out of you yet!
