More Liberator Chronicles

I bought these as part of the recent Big Finish sale on Blake’s 7 stories. I’ve already got volumes 1 and 2 and so I thought that getting this could be nothing but a safe bet.

I’m really looking forward to hearing this story, although I’ve got a nagging thought that I’ve heard 3 before. We’ll see.

Blake’s 7: Ghost Ship


Another good story from Big Finish. I’ve enjoyed the full cast series of Blake’s 7 a lot more than the liberator chronicles, although the few of those I’ve listened to have been good too. I think that there’s something special about a full cast drama. It is probably my favourite kind of audiobook.

This series has been consistently good as is this story. I won’t give anything away just in case you’re going to listen to it. But suffice it to say that there’s an interesting story arc building and I’m keen to hear where it goes.

It’s a great series all in all. So much so that I really don’t want it to end. I just hope that they keep making them.

Oh yes, and one other thing, this is now post 2000! I couldn’t think of any particular science fiction show or really anything else to commemorate the 2000th post on my blog, so I thought that Blake’s 7 was as good, if not better, than anything else.

Blake’s 7: Cold Fury

It was a slightly confusing story, but good. Probably I’ll listen to the entire series all in one go later in the year hopefully, and I’m sure I’ll get a lot more out of it at that point.

I have been really enjoying this season of Blake’s 7 stories, the arc has been great and each individual story has been good on its own as well, and this story was no different at all. The cast are really good together and the production quality is very high.

I think I might have to listen to them all again even before the next one is out.

I really should have subscribed to the latest Blake’s 7 series. It is excellent. I love that it’s a full cast drama rather than a narration. These stories are so like the original TV series that they’re a joy to listen to.

I listened to this again today, a great story, a really good jaunt back to the original series. I think I’m going to have to give in and start buying the latest series.
