Two of the stories are excellent. It is because the double-handers actually have what the listener surely wants from a story. A conversation piece between two characters. Inevitably a bit of story is involved to thread the scenes and developments together. The third story does the exact opposite and is narrating a television-like story with a bit of dialogue around it. For me this does not work and I lose interest as a listener.
4.1 Promises is a superb mind-game between Cally and Travis 1. It is clever, well performed and a credible story in the canon. Grief, who played Travis originally is back, and when given the opportunity on one occasion to shout "Blake" you know it's back to the good ol' days of season A.
4.2 Epitaph explores Jenna's past with Vila in tow. I love these two characters and so wanted them just to be talking but alas this is only what you get at the beginning and briefly at the end. Knyvette narrates it well, but I want to hear her character Jenna, not a talking book. I did not enjoy this story.
4.3 Kerr unites "Avon" and Servalan, in an original and unconventional way. Not wanting to spoil it at all and do not read the back cover blurb either. There is some narration, but it is done calmly by Pearce and is about the right limit. It has an ending that one does not foresee also.
Two of these stories were for me five stars, the narrative-heavy one drags the package down to four stars.
Getting two actors together for one story (or one disc as with The Armageddon Storm),is a great idea.Read more ›
Epitaph (by Scott Harrison, starring Sally Knyvette as Jenna, with Michael Keating as Vila) is another audio I disagree with the internet about - I like it a lot! It's an interesting fleshing out of Jenna's back-story, specifically discussing what might have happened to those who were left behind when she joined Blake. It's an emotional heist movie, basically, with Jenna teaming up with some criminals of her acquaintance and our own Vila Restal, who is allowed by the narrative to be clever, useful and emotionally intelligent. Although they were the two original companions, Jenna and Vila never got much time together on screen, so it's nice to pair them up now and see what happens. Keating is, as always, delightful and Knyvette still does a good line in imperious poise.Read more ›
The Liberator chronicles are talking books +. Mostly 2 handers (presumably to keep the production costs down) - though there are now a range of full cast audio plays being made as well.
when I say talking books +, its because its part narration and part audio play with typically one of the actors narrating and playing their role alongside the 2nd actor.
Personal favourite in this batch of 3 stories is Kerr which is narrated performed by the woman who played Servalan alongside Paul 'Avon' Darrow. Both Jaqueline Pearce and Paul darrow absolutely nail their characters the performances are excellent - its like being 10 years old and watching the tv show again.
