A great box set of Who stories which is rounding off my collection of Tom Baker’s 4th Doctor stories.
I’ve loved this film for years and years, and I’ve only just got a copy of it at last. It’s amazing to think that it was made in 1956. The story still leaves me with questions, and the concepts are as relevant today as they were then.
The design and art are incredible, and I’d love to be able to walk around the krell machines to see them better.
Another Tom Baker story. Quite a good one too. I enjoyed it, and I’m not sure that I’d seen it before either.
After listening to the chronicles 2 I listened to this hour long story. It’s a full cast production and it works really well. I think that of the Blake’s 7 big finish productions pieces I’ve listened to, this is one of the best so far. I really enjoyed the story and I’m hopeful that it’ll lead on to something interesting.
The last of the stories in this boxed set. It wasn’t bad, somewhat intricate and starring Servalan. In fact it was quite a complex story, and, as with the others in the set, a big improvement on the first box set I got. Still, overall the stories lack something. Perhaps the kind of overall texture that you get from a Doctor Who Big Finish story. Perhaps that’s not a bad thing. Blake’s 7 was always more stark, minimal, and maybe that’s how it’s being played.
Whatever the case, this was a better listen than last time around, so I’m glad I got it, and I might give the first box set another listen now.
It was on the BBC news website today, and it’s such great news after so many rumours of Blake’s 7 remakes and reboots etc. Of course, we’ve been here before. More than once actually. But this time I really hope that it does get remade and that it’s really is a worthy remake of the excellent Blake’s 7. It has all the right ingredients. A good writer and director on board, and SyFy actually make some good stuff, so I have high hopes.
I really hope it comes together in the not too distant future.
This is a great Tom Baker story, and one that I needed to add to my collection. It’s part of a two story boxed set called “The Unit Files” as both of the stories feature UNIT quiet heavily. Great stuff though.
I so enjoy these earlier stories. They take their time to unfold and get going and there is much more emphasis on the science fiction.
Well worth a watch if you get the chance.
I got the boxed set of UFO (from the 70′s) for Christmas, and I started watching them tonight, but I wasn’t ready for just how 1970′s they’d be! Of course, you can’t judge a 1970′s production by today’s standards in anyway at all, it just isn’t fair, but it makes you realise what we take for granted in so many aspects of television.
Anyway, it’s a great show, and I love the theme tune too. As I watch them I’ll probably comment some more about the show. In fact, I probably won’t be able to help myself!
