Blake's Seven (Series 3)

This series announced an odd departure point for Blakeís 7, most noticeably due to the fact that Blake was no longer in the series and Avon (played by Paul Darrow) was the lead character. The third series also announced a much harsher storyline than was previously the case with some of the action bordering on needing a higher rating than was given. 

It was initially odd not having Blake in the series but the rest of the cast pull the story together nicely enough that you eventually get over it. The general storyline seems to have lost its focus just a little but the good thing is that itís more open forum in a boys own adventure type scenario! 

Running across 5 DVDs and 700 minutes, Blakeís 7 is a rollicking trip that continues the fight against all oppressors, though it is a bit disjointed as there is no continuance of a storyline in the same way that there was in the first two series. For those who have trouble going the distance with a long story, you will be glad as most shows are pretty much self contained. 

Considering the age of the series, the audio/visual has come up trumps on this release and possibly is the best to date. There are a number of great extras included but a making of should have been included. There is a lot here to offer to the devotee but something as simple as a making of should not have been overlooked. My only guess might be is that this footage might have not been made available.

Despite the age of the show, I can really recommend it. Itís a great piece of storytelling and although a little corny at times will keep you watching right until the very end. Great Stuff.
