4.0 out of 5 stars Long time ago on a Monday night, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well now you can truely know what happened at the end of Blake's 7. This ignores the poor Trevor Hoyle book 'AFTERLIFE' and is written by the person who knows Avon the best, Paul Darrow. Mostly set some time after season 4 it shows that Avon is no less paranoid but every bit as lethal. It introduces new main villains though some old ones make an appearance. It also explains the immediate aftermath of 'Blake' and how Avon survived near certain death

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect the movie, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World War Z (Kindle Edition)
I bought this after seeing the film so was slightly surprised that really all they share is the initial premise. The book is told in flashback like a ww 2 news report, similar to the world at war documentary,and is very well written. My only concern was that certain sections are so engaging that you would like more details, especially the Japanese and downed pilot sections. Btw the movie is worth watching also even if it does use day of triffids for its ending tone

4.0 out of 5 stars classic still after all theses years, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as my CD original was damaged. the remastering is nice and crisp with Scott Ian and the boys on top form. the inclusion of NFV was the clincher for me. the 2nd CD has alternative of classic songs but you struggle to tell the difference

5.0 out of 5 stars As great as ever, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
always had played the android phone version of this to a great level of addiction. As i got a kindle fire for my birthday i decided to see if there was any difference with the HD version. Still as playable but with nice little addons. be warned though watch out for certain options as they will cost money

Samsung BD-C6500 Blu-Ray Player - Built-in WiFi

4.0 out of 5 stars Great system ......pity about windows 7, 18 Feb 2011
This is a very good and efficient blu-ray player. the incorporation of analogue 7.1 sound is nice as I have been looking to replace my original BP-1500 with an internet ready version due to my current sound system. the menu is easy to use and the network set up was simple. the only fly in the ointment is that it is currently incompatible with windows 7 so you can't access certain features. Come on samsung fix this and this is why only 4 stars

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic buy, 11 July 2009
If you are looking for an ideal sloution to play games such as left 4 dead online. the microphone has good sensitivity and the surround sound gives a good range of sound with the bass not overpowering. The drawback is that the "leather" headphones are little small. the software is easy to install but make sure your speakers are off when switching them on or vista has a heart attack

4.0 out of 5 stars Lost classic released again, 13 Nov 2003
At last Evil of the Daleks is released on CD. The old tape version was slightly odd with the naration performed by another doctor and rather out of place. This newer version has the ever reliable Frazer Hines giving his well oiled, emotive naration from previous discs to a true "classic" story. As there is no visual version left, bar episode 2, this is a close fans will get to this marvellous story. There are so many plots and counter plots with the Daleks at their most evil but closely followed by Maxtible. The final episodes on Skaro are tense and the ending is something that would be rarely tried today with a series major foe being killed off (well apparently for 5 years in the series)
Also in the tin is Power of the Daleks which has a new naration by Anneke Wills (Polly). This is also an improvement over the old tape version but does lack the finesse of the Frazer Hines commentaries. The story is good and the Daleks are unusually clever for a change in what for them is a small scale plot. As the first Troughton story it is must for fans though few will recognise Troughton's portrayal from the one in Evil as he veers from almost Shakespearean acting to broad farce as the writers decide which way the Doctor would go after the Hartnell era.
My life as a Dalek is rather strange but is also rather pointless.
Overall well worth the money and the tin is rather nice to
