I was think about ‘Dance of The Dead,’ and thought about how the 4 Mini-Mokes appear together for the first time in the series, as only 3 appear together in ‘Arrival,’ and ‘Free For All.’ More than that I observed the subtle differences in the Mokes, and decided to make a case study of them. So Mini-Mokes are small
Most taxis have a front and rear taxi plate, but on one Moke the rear plate is missing, however that is not the casewhen Mini-Mokes are put to other uses in the Village. In some circumstances the plates are simply blacked out, in the case of the bomb disposal unit and given the most awful squeaky siren, and by security guards during the evacuation of the village. One Mini-Moke must have been new to The Village at the time, because someone had forgotten to remove its original licence plate
HLT 709C. In ‘Hammer Into Anvil’ the Mini-Moke
driven by Number 14 has neither blacked out plates nor taxi plates, it has no
plates at all! One has no spare wheel cover, another has a blacked out rear
taxi plate, or has a front taxi plate but no rear taxi plate.
Be seeing you
