It's only been out for a few days, but everyone's going wild for our full cast Blake's 7 release, Warship!
Here are just a few of the comments on Blake's 7: Warship we've had so far:
'The real strength of Warship – as with the original series – lies in the interactions between the Liberator’s crew. All the moral ambiguities and questionable motives that made the original series so compelling are present in Warship. There are some outstanding scenes between Blake and Cally, and between Avon and Blake, with dialogue lines and performances equal to anything we saw on screen.' - Horizon, the Official Blake's 7 Fan Club
'Writer Anghelides has constructed a classic piece of space opera that really wouldn’t have felt out of place as a televised episode. You can almost see the cast rocking from side to side as they weather the blasts from alien cannons.' - SciFind
'A triumph for all concerned. The dialogue falls under the tongues of the actors naturally, so more than ever before, you really feel as if this is an episode the BBC accidentally forgot to broadcast in 1979.' - Sci-Fi Bulletin
'Wow, Blake's 7 Warship from @bigfinish is brilliant! I've been watching through the episodes just recently and this fits in perfectly.' - Rob, Twitter
'Now that Blake’s 7 Warship was quite a ripping yarn. Thanks to all involved!' - Michael Z, Twitter
'Just listened to Blake's 7: Warship. Fantastically written, performed and mixed. More please!' - Alex Skerratt, Twitter
'Paul Darrow still sounds like Avon and Michael Keating doesn't seem to have aged at all. It gets a standard by 4 star rating from me.' - Eamonn Clarke
Starring Gareth Thomas, Paul Darrow, Michael Keating, Jan Chappell, Sally Knyvette, Jacqueline Pearce, returning to the roles they made famous back in 1979, Warship is the first full cast Blake's 7 production for Big Finish and is available as a special release, outside of any subscription.
Blake’s 7 was created by Terry Nation (who also created the Daleks for Doctor Who) and ran for four years on BBC TV. It focused on a team of resistance fighters aboard their advanced ship the Liberator, who battle the corrupt forces of the Federation. Warship is part of a series of audiobooks that is being released in a licence deal with B7 Media.
It's ten years since Nick Briggs became co-executive producer of Big Finish Productions. His friends and colleagues celebrate this fact in a not entirely serious tribute.
