Blake's 7 is a much-loved classic TV science fiction series, in which a band of rebels fight the despotic Federation, led by Supreme Commander Servalan. This audio collection features two thrilling full cast BBC Radio 4 adventures. The Sevenfold Crown
Raiding Servalan's HQ, the crew discover that she possesses a jewel that belongs to an ancient, long-lost crown, a mystical artifact of indescribable power. Suddenly the Scorpio crew are as determined as Servalon to acquire the circlet; but if they do, will absolute power corrupt Avon absolutely?
The Syndeton Experiment
Tired of running, Avon and company plan to settle down on the planet Syndexia. But Servalan is ahead of them, on the trail of the man who invented the nanochip, a device which offers total control over human beings. If Servalan reaches Dr Rossum first, she stands a chance of enslaving a whole population.

Better then the TV series?

This is first rate radio sci fi with an excellent cast and two well paced adventures. It's just a shame there isn't more of it! You don't have to be a fan of the series to understand or enjoy these stories, although obviously that adds to the whole expirience.

The magnificent seven!

Written by my uncle, I cannot be more proud of these. I think they are the most authentic radio series recordings. I love the big finish stuff, but somehow this is just soooo BBC.
Good stories, actors obviously having a whale of a time and the interlude between episodes is great; isn't included on the CD versions I note. I love the little winks at the audience re "old quarries", the digs at Beeb props, and Peter Tuffenham... "Let's do some more" that makes me sad because Big Finish took too long for him to do that.

Just a warning, the interlude between the stories has MAJOR SPOILERS if you are coming to Blakes 7 new. Listen to this after the final episode.

But I will just say that rumours of a certain persons death ARE greatly exaggerated. Thanks for clearing that up Paul. ;)
