Re: The 2006 Blakes 7 Reimigining Radio Plays.

read a while back they were proceeding with a second season (think the scripts may have been nearing completion) but there hasn't been any updates in quite some time.

Re: The 2006 Blakes 7 Reimigining Radio Plays.

Just finished the last one.

What a fricking cliff hanger!

Time is seriously nigh!

It's been over four years.

But if this was tyhe direction that thye were planning in taking the NEW TV show, it would have been fun.

No teleporter however.

It wasn't the special effect that I enjoyed but the exclusivity and tactical advantage it gave Blake over everyone else... Both Voyager and Enterprise tried to play that game but it didn't last.

Maybe Avon just hadn't found it yet?

Most probably. Must have been 4 years since I heard it, but they hadn't introduced Cally or Orac at that point of the reimagineering either had they?

I wish they had just gone forward with it, rather than prequels that were part new, part old cast. Trying to be both can't work. It seemed to happen just as a TV revival seemed possible, almost as if they no longer wanted to waste their best ideas on Audio.

Cally came on the soon in Time Squad which was the fourth episode, Orac didn't appear until the episode of the same name which finished off Series 1.

The next batch of eps (if they ever get made) should introduce Cally as we've progress through The Way Back/Spacefall/Cygnus Alpha.

What I do remember of the audio is they skipped a lot of all that, events from the third part (in particular the cliffhanger) were events that occured much later in the original.

Re: The 2006 Blakes 7 Reimigining Radio Plays.

They made this series to be released on radio as 36 tiny parts.

It was later bunched up into three episodes.

The final episode ended with a foothold invasion by the System with five liberator class vessels holding the beachhead effortless, hacking into Zen till he was their bitch.

How grand.

The original series was just a suggestion.
