I'm a massive Blakes 7 fan but I very nearly gave up on this at disc one. The opening chapters are, frankly, dreadful - not the performances: Jacqueline Pierce and Paul Darrow are terrific, as always, but the writing is TERRIBLE. Massively, unnecessarily over-descriptive, with prose so purple it's barely still in the visible spectrum. Adjectives (and there are many. Oh. So. Many) are all turned up to eleven. Every description, every character trait is laboured to the nth degree. Everything is to...more

0 stars. Ugh. I bailed on Disk 1 (Part 1 / Jacqueline Pearce), skipping tracks along through to Disk 4 (Part 2 / Paul Darrow), and then abandoned entirely.

Where to begin? The story is so poorly written that it doesn't give the actors a chance. Slow and ponderous and dull.

Sadly, the actors couldn't rise above the material. Furthermore, much as I love them, I'm going to lay out their flaws. More shocking than the fact that they failed to do justice to the other characters -- the people with whom t...more

“You won,” said Travis stolidly, his face hard and brutal. “That's what counted.” But Sinofar shook her head wanly. Her eyes held an infinite reservoir of sadness. “It wasn't a victory. It was only the end of the war...”

There's a certain antiquity to these stories; their headlong p...more

This book is the novelisation of 4 episodes, Seek Locate Destroy, Duel, Project Avalon, and (an abbreviated) Orac. It was ok, reminded me how much I love this show. Unfortunately the thing I love the most about this show is Servalan and Avon and there was very little of them in these four stories. A quick and easy read that's a nice reminder of some of the good things about this show. Though why they choose the Duel instead of other episodes from series 1 is beyond me!

Recommends it for: fans of the series
These early episodes of the series were so good-Travis was such an excellent character and I did like his black leather outfits especially when they switched actors! OK I'm digressing now...this was another good novel based on season 1 and the vendetta between Travis and Blake. Makes me want to go and watch the DVDs again...

I've always loved the show, and this was just sitting on my shelf.
