This story was my favourite of the trilogy as it had good old Roj Blake, the wonderful Gareth Thomas in as the lead, and ably and wonderfully complemented by Paul Darrow as Avon. These stories are wonderful in the fact the you simply forget that essentially what we have here is an "unplugged two actor audio drama", you simply forget that the cast is so small, the interplay is top notch as you go between the actors character and the supporting cast, there is never a point when you think, hey this is the same person. It is tantamount to the professional skill and talent that these guys have in abundance. The pace of the story is superb, to summarise Roj Black and Avon go to the mining facility which is rumoured to be mining a element which can turn anything into anything else, the age old tale of lead in gold, however it turns out to be an underhand scheme of lies and more lies, added and abetted by the corrupt administration and staff of the setup. The whole thing whirls along with the wonderful tones of Gareth and Paul. I simply don't know where the time went. Superb Blake 7 stuff and worth every penny, fitting end to this first of the liberator chronicles.

Second story of the box set and this time it is the turn of Villa and Nyrron to lead us through a tightly wound drama, based around the premises of Villa loosing his memory and then retelling a anxiety dream strewn hour or so of well crafted and exceptionally well acted drama to play out. It must be said that on listening to this you do not necessarily get the impression that it is just two actors involved in the telling of the story, you certainly get the sense of this being a much bigger sound scape which encompasses the entire cast of the Blake Seven. Nigel Fairs plays a blinder here as he changes tack, plot and gear compared to other Blake Seven releases either by Big Finish or B7 productions. This drama explores more the character and the psyche of Villa more than anything else. What this story above all else proves that the actors involved now as when this programme was on TV, are exceptionally good at what they do, and for a 40+ year old male Sci Fi fane to re-visit them some 30 years later he cannot quite believe that these people who players these parts were actually as good as they were. Superb production and high quality direction make the second story in the trilogy is left you wanting more.

This was my first foray into the Blake's Seven arena from Big Finish, and to be honest I was not disappointed, it held my attention and Paul Darrow as the inevitable Avon, was right on the money from the off, the staccato style delivery of his lines was perfect, and bought back the character from TV to audio in an updated format. Supported admirably by Micheal Keating as Villa, again the role was a first class portrayal. The idea of Avon and Villa under mining the federation by getting into a secret research facility and for Avon to portray that of a android was superb use of the cold character that he normally is. I also formed the opinion that Avon himself is a sort of futuristic Geek, the idea of him identifying his own persona in that of the android they escape with from the secret base, made for a rewarding awakening for Avon has he realised that the android was neared to his personality than to his fellow renegades, I also liked the way he mulls over the love/hate relationship he has with Roj and the fact that he comes over as the pessimist and Roj as the ever optimist, with their ongoing struggle with the powers that have committed them to their fate. All in all I rate this and look forward to listening to the other parts to this series arc and story in the first of the series.
