Not as good as previous entries

Would you try another book written by the authors or narrated by the narrators?

Only if it was a full cast audio.

How could the performance have been better?

There is a lead actor narrating, with another actor occasionally appearing.

Any additional comments?

Would be a far better listen with a full cast. Just comes across as quite a cheap production.

Enjoyable narrated by the Great Paul Darrow

It has classic era feel stories, the first story is read by the great Paul Darrow, who could read the phone book and make it sound good as far as I'm concerned! All the familiar characters from the classic first two series are mentioned which adds to the enjoyment.

Classic Blake and crew - now buying part 2

If you liked the series you will like the audio. true to the legacy of Terry Nation, the writing carries on the 'noble quest' against the Federation.

Takes you back!

Really enjoyed these three stories. They cross over to Audible very well. Lovely to hear such clear spoken English these days!

not cannon

it was briefly nostalgic to hear the characters again but the stories were unsatisfying. I am sad that this doesn't live up to the memories I have.

New B7 stories!

A mixed bag of short stories. All in keeping with the TV series. I will look forward to more.

Great story

This audio book was performed by many of the television series actors. This gave the story so much authenticity. It took me back to my childhood watching Blake's 7 on Chicago PBS channel 11.

Science Fiction classics

If you never traveled in this universe, you may be lost. the TV show that stories are companion to is a classic but not for everyone.
BBC production levels being what they are, the show was limited by budget so it relied on characters and story the most. each of these stories can fit between episodes and seasons. no soft rebooting here. we even get someone the original cast playing the part.

a must for fans of radio style storytelling and required for writers and fans of Sci-Fi
