    "Using a credit - this is the one to buy!"


    It gets a little confusing looking at the Dan Dare audiobooks; which one to buy, head scratch? If you are using an Audible ‘credit’, this one!

    This is Season 1, which contains both Volume 1 + 2; a total of 6 episodes, a documentary and the music of Dan Dare. Wasn’t interested in listening to the music, just skipped it (36 minutes).

    A fun romp around space, no complicated storyline to follow. Will definitely listen to any future episodes. It’s a grower, enjoyed it more as I went through the episodes. It even has Heida Reed who plays Peabody - Elizabeth from BBC’s Poldark.

    The ‘only’ criticism is that it appeared as if the actors were recorded in individual booths, probably due to productions reasons/ the availability of actors, and then the vocals entwined together. This resulted in ‘heavy dialogue’ parts coming across more as joined sound bites, also the gap between vocals seemed the same so made the conversation sound unnatural.

    Hope that B7 media produce some more :)

    "Outstanding adaptation and performance "

    Dipping into the past to bring to a new generation something that worked well before does not always work. Thunderbirds(Movie) and the Green Hornet(Movie) to name but to, but the list is quite long. This, however, is the exception. Great story, great acting and a perfect balance of special sound effects. I can't wait for the next one!

    Story
    "Childhood Memories"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I use to buy the comic when it came out in the 80’s and loved it as a teenager. Now as a mature adult I am enjoying the audio version. I wish I kept the comics. The performance keeps me interested and good story line.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say Dan Dare he comes across how I use to see him when I read the comics.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    That is impossible for me to say.

    Story
    "Ford Prefect, how could you ?"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Any 5 year old


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    I doubt it


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    Not relevant


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, I was able to get my money back


    Any additional comments?

    Wow, this is bad. Difficult to determine the worst bits but Dan Dare’s personality is a strong contender. He is the most irritating dullard in any adventure series ever. Then there is the terrible acting by the whole cast ( Ford Prefect how could you ? ) and not least of all the overpowering sound effects which definitely mean it’s not bead time listening. Put your money, or credits, somewhere else..... anywhere else!

    "Nothing like the comic book stories in Eagle"

    This is far darker than the original comic stories. Very disappointing. There is considerable ambivalence in the characters and the Dare-Digby relationship is not like my childhood series.
    With undertones of corporate exploitation and some quite brutal violence this is certainly not a children's book.
    Despite excellent acting I found this a big let-down.
