5.0 out of 5 stars blake's all new seven part three, 8 Aug. 2008

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
third in a series of audio plays that is an all new version of blake's seven, the popular old bbc science fiction show. this is a remake/slight reimaging with an all new cast. and a few new characters.

each of these cd's runs for roughly sixty minutes and is divided into twelve tracks. this is because it was originally broadcast on the internet as twelve short episodes but they all flow together smoothly here.

the story continues on from earlier cd's rebel and traitor, and it's best to hear them first in order to pick up what's going on.

and there's a lot of that. rebellion is brewing on blake's ship, and the federation are setting traps to catch him. can he survive both, and the bigger danger that awaits....

be aware this does end on a huge cliffhanger and there's unfortunately no sign of any continuation ahoy. but what a cliffhanger it is! and this release also contains an excellent bonus disc of extras. most audios that do that just have audio interviews with cast and crew but this does it visually and that makes them all the more better.

a great return for blake's seven and an excellent audio series

5.0 out of 5 stars Blake is back!, 17 Jan. 2009
I have to admit to some trepidation when listening to this audio revival of the classic BBC TV series. "Re-imagining" can be good or bad, but in this case the writers have been careful to retain the spirit of the original while not slavishly reproducing what has gone before. They've given real thought to the old series, sifting out the contradictions and illogicalities, and adding a sense of political drama. The result is gripping drama, enhanced by top-notch production values and a terrific cast. Everything from the packaging to the music marks this out as a classy product, and it's plain that the people behind this really love what they're doing. I really can't recommend this highly enough!
