I’m a fan of Deerful’s music so it was good news when she announced a cassette release. It’s a really nice EP too and very well put togeher.
I can’t believe that I didn’t pick up on this last week, and I also can’t believe that Gareth Thomas has died. What a shame, only 71 as well, that’s not old these days. He was brilliant as Blake in Blake’s 7, which is a great favourite of mine. I feel like the world of Blake’s 7 is much smaller as a result.
I’m also thinking that I should now re-watch the entire TV series and also re-listen to all the audiobooks. That could take quite a while, but would of course be worth it.
I also wonder what Big Finish will do now in terms of the next step for their audio series for Blake’s 7? I do hope that they continue it somehow.
A happy birthday to the 5th Doctor. I think he was a very good Doctor actually, and whilst I didn’t watch all of his episodes, I’ve very much enjoyed his stuff on Big Finish, so it was very nice of them to put some of his stuff on sale for the weekend, and I picked up a few new stories.
It’s good to hear that Neil Arthur is doing even more music. Hot on the heals of the latest Blancmange album ‘Commuter 23’ (I’m still listening to it and thinking about how I feel about it), he’s into a new musical exploit called ‘Near Future’. I just missed out on getting a signed CD of their first single, which was annoying. Never mind. I’ll have to wait for it to come out later in the month.
