The Testament Of Arkadia Security Guard (Tony Allan/ Irwin)


Tony's forename is given in Earthbound, and his surname Allan is seen on his helmet in Ring Around The Moon. In the script of The Testament Of Arkadia Tony and Quinton are named Irwin and N'Dole (Tony being Irwin), but they are not so named in dialogue. He is usually with Quinton; the only episodes they are not together are Another Time, Another Place (Tony only), Missing Link (Tony only), The Full Circle (Tony only), Black Sun (Quinton only) and The Last Sunset (Quinton only).

He is head of Security in Year 1 (and takes a place at the Command Conference in Guardian Of Piri).

His hair is short at the start of Year One. From The Full Circle he has a beard. He is clean shaven, but with longer hair, in the final two episodes, Dragon's Domain, and The Testament Of Arkadia. In certain scenes of The Last Enemy and Space Brain (filmed at the end of the series) he has a fake beard.

"Alright, come on! Keep it moving! Down to the shelters! Hurry up. Not much more time. Come on, hurry up. Keep it moving, down to the shelters." (Space Brain)
"We searched the whole section, Commander. There's no-one in here." (The Troubled Spirit)
"Commander. There's been an attack on the food store. Suspect, Anna Davis." (The Testament Of Arkadia)
