5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible concert - so much more energy than Wembly!, 29 Oct. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although, circa 1982, Queen were touring South America and doing great things abroad; for many fans, they had not produced a decent studio album for years. Following "The Game", Flash Gordon was not enough to feed the die hard fan's appetite for Queen. (At 15 years old two years is a long wait). Then came Hot Space!!! Was "Body Language" really by the same group as "Brighton Rock"? However, armed with the memory of "Live Killers" I travelled to the exotic Milton Keynes and was blown away by a wall of sound. Compare the energy in this DVD to Wembley. Freddie was still hitting the high notes and look at the way he and Roger and "going for it" 100%. I remember that Freddie took time out to talk to the fans about the shock of the new tracks from Hot Space album. He exclaimed "It's only a !"%"%£ record". The sound was superb and the heavy renditions of Staying Power, Back Chat and Dragon Attack were fantastic. Brian May's guitar sound (lots of flanging) was the best I can remember. I remember an issue with his guitar lead during the Brighton Rock solo and they have kept that in for the DVD. The guys were back !!! I'm in the front row at the beginning when then come on stage to Flash Gordon and the DTS 6.1 sound brings the whole thing to life. Thanks for working on this Brian and Roger.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all BBC Sci Fi fans, 21 July 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When this was aired on TV all those years ago, ratings were rather poor! However, penned by talented Doctor Who writers the stories were multi-layered and each episode had an interesting twist. There were only 9 episodes made but each one is a gem. We really got to know and love the characters and the special effects were OK. The show was a kind of mixture between Blakes 7 (a small computer called BOX replaces ORAC - the characters are kind of grumpy also) and Sherlock Holmes in Space! Fantastic Science Fiction.
