The writer 'gets it' and that is so so important. No matter how good a writer is if they can't capture the spirit of the show and its characters then they are lost. This archives both. It's pretty much a three act story as was Blake's 7 when it was shown. Each episode works that way.there's also I kind of prologue.
It is not dependent on emotion, but the characters are sympathetic and as they should be... if not a little grey, a little dubious... that little streak of the amoral just peeking in, but this is early in the series writing so it's only a vague question.
As for the rest, great story. Fairly simple, very B7- with violence, betrayal, side switching, side switching back again, Travis in a truly unfortunate situation and of course the lovely Servalan. Some brilliant dramatic scenes that make you want to read on, some great cliffhangers and so nice to see Rontain again.
Back to the emotional aspect,much of big finish is concerned with taking apart the characters strand by strand. Stripping them to the audience which is great as the series never did that. In this they stick to.the series, a touch of emotion but not bogged down in relationship rubbish like much of nu who.
So I heartily recommend this book.
Anyway, all in all a good trip back in time, a book that keeps you reading without any nasty jars of 'but Blake would never do that' and without the right amount of technobabble
I wasn't let down. This was a marvellous read that absolutely captured the feel of the origina series. Everybody was in character, the dialogue was spot on - I could 'hear' the actors in my head as I read the lines. I particularly enjoyed their treatment of Avon. His actions implied one thing to the crew, his lines were ambiguous and only his thoughts revealed his feelings, torn as always between the pragmatist wanting to be safe at any cost and his nagging conscience.
Best of all, the story being set in the early days of Blake's 7, the crew all felt like their early versions and not the harder, more battle weary some of them became.
My kudos to the writers. I'm very much looking forward to their next offering.

A Blake's 7 adventure that started well, a mysterious nebula and an abandoned space station.....it had all the making of a good story, but then the plot sort of died for me. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Nidge

The Forgotten is a very enjoyable book which, as other reviewers may have commented on, reads like the novelization of a televised Blake's 7 story. Read morePublished on 22 Oct. 2012 by Stevos
