Blake's 7 was a pivotal show for me to watch as a young boy in the 70's and early 80's. It had everything a young fan of science fiction could ever want, a hideously corrupt government, a wrongly convicted hero, unpredictable and dodgy characters galore, a superb spaceship (both with the context of the show, and as a actual model design, The Liberator), space battles, sexy women (hey! I was 13), great stories and evil villains.
One thing that people need to remember, that back then the VCRs only belonged to the mega rich, so there was no way to capture this superb series, unless your name was Richard Burton or Robert Redford. You couldn't just pop down to the shops and pick up the complete set off the shelf for £20, in a package no bigger than a paper-backed book.
We had to make do with actual paper-backed books. And this was one of mine. One of my favourites actually. Just because it was Blake's 7 and for no other reason. That said, Trevor Hoyle does a pretty good job blending in the opening episodes scripts into a coherent narrative. Nothing new is added really but it is a competent read.
A great price, 1p, costs more to post!!??
