Terry Nation's seminal 70s science fiction television series BLAKE'S 7 has been updated in this bold and dramatic audio reboot featuring a stellar cast (Derek Riddell, Colin Salmon and Daniela Nardini). The galactic Federation, once a beacon for of democracy and peace, has become a corrupt tyranny. Freedom and justice are things of the past. Roj Blake stood up for the ordinary people but is framed for crimes he didn't commit and sentenced to permanent exile on the notorious prison planet of Cygnus Alpha. A path of betrayal, lies and deceit leads to only one destination. Toward a deadly confrontation that will change everything. The Federation thinks it has seen the last of Roj Blake. The Federation will wish it had.
  • BLAKE'S 7 - Rebel (Episode 1): Roj Blake stood up for the ordinary people. When the establishment tried intimidation he laughed in their faces, when they tried to crush him he fought back. They tried to brainwash him into obedience, but he broke their conditioning. Finally they framed him for crimes he didn't commit and sentenced him to permanent exile on the notorious prison planet of Cygnus Alpha.
  • BLAKE'S 7 - Traitor (Episode 2): Roj Blake is on the run. He has a ship, but the ship has plans of its own. He has a crew, but who are his friends and who are his enemies? Blake thought space meant freedom, but space is cold, cruel and steeped in blood. The power of the Federation reaches further and deeper than Blake dared imagine. Freedom is nowhere to be found.
  • BLAKE'S 7 - Liberator (Episode 3): The Federation's grip is tightening, and Roj Blake and the crew of the Liberator have nowhere left to hide. As time runs out, old friendships are shattered and new alliances are forged. Choices are made and battle lines are drawn across the galaxy. A path of betrayal, lies and deceit leads to only one destination. Toward a deadly confrontation that will change everything.
  • Special Features: The final disc of the trilogy boasts an impressive array of extras including an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary with the cast, writers and director discussing the production of the all-new audio adventures, the influence of the classic series and what the future holds in store for Blake's 7.

I totally enjoyed listening to this re-imagining of Blake's 7. The cast was superb , and with a line up such as Colin Salmon (James Bond , Resident Evil etc.) and Derek Riddell , the acting quality was excellent. Totally recommend these for listening to in the car , or at home , and its great to see one of my favourite shows from the past coming back like Dr Who has. Not quite sure what the other reviewer meant by a mainly Scottish cast as this was not the case ? If you are an original series fan , or fresh to Blake's 7 you cannot go wrong with these discs !

 If you loved the original Blake's 7...

...then these audio's may NOT be for you! With a total re-cast, and tapering of the scripts, this new attempt to go back and remake Blake's 7 on audio actually has a lot to be desired.
With, what appears to be, a mostly scottish speaking cast (both Blake and Servelan - what I would count as the mainstays of the stories), the tapering of the stories does not make them better, but actually makes them rather unexciting.
There is one positive though - India Fisher from the Big Finish Doctor Who adventures makes an appearance (although is dead quite quickly, albeit in a different manner to the original series).
If you are coming to Blake afresh, then they are probably worth giving a try.
