Three enhanced audiobooks performed by the stars of the classic BBC television series. These stories are set during series one.
The Turing Test by Simon Guerrier, starring Paul Darrow as Avon and Michael Keating as Vila. Avon and Vila go undercover at a top secret research establishment.
Solitary by Nigel Fairs, starring Michael Keating as Vila and Anthony Howell as Nyrron. Vila is alone and amnesiac. Why have his friends turned against him?
Counterfeit by Peter Anghelides, starring Gareth Thomas as Blake and Paul Darrow as Avon. Blake investigates a mining facility, unaware that his sworn enemy is close by.
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.
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.
