A superb couple of stories and an ideal way to celebrate 40 years.
@TinDogPodcast reviews the stunning #Blakes7 40th Anniversary box set from @BigFinish.
A brand new two-hour drama celebrating the 40th anniversary of Terry Nation's classic Blake's 7 series.
The Way Ahead by Mark Wright
Roj Blake. Kerr Avon. Names that sent shockwaves through the galaxy, shattering the foundations of the Terran Federation and giving hope to the oppressed. But what is their legacy? Crusading heroes or dangerous enemies of the state?
In the early days of Blake’s rebellion, the Liberator comes to Malanar Delta to aid resistance leader Avalon, but the crew find Space Commander Travis and his Federation forces waiting. An abandoned Federation research project could give Travis the key to finally bringing Blake to justice.
Years later, in the aftermath of the Galactic War, Avon and the Liberator crew fight to survive as new battle lines are drawn and alliances forged by President Servalan. Will survival be enough when a symbol of hope is turned into a devastating engine of war?

A brilliant and funny addition to the monthly range.
On the planet Cicero Prime, the kingdom of Cardenas is divided, with the whole population forced to swear allegiance to either the effete Duke or the fiery, hard-edged Duchess. This is a situation both parties have grown tired of. What use is half a kingdom when, thanks to a carefully engineered murder, you could have it all?
Surely, neither of them would be rash enough to summon the deadly off-world assassin The Scorpion to help with their problem? And surely, this terrifying figure wouldn’t arrive wearing a long cream coat and striped trousers…?

A Simply Brilliant slice of the 1970s that never were...
1. The Splintered Man by Roland Moore
When a Spanish scientist kills himself in an explosion at a secret test facility, Counter-Measures are called in to salvage anything they can from the wreckage. But someone else is stalking the scene - and they're determined that whatever is lost will stay lost.
As Rachel is reunited with an old flame, she finds herself drawn into the heart of a mystery. What exactly was Doctor Javier Santos working on? And who exactly is trying to prevent its discovery?
2. The Ship of the Sleepwalkers by Christopher Hatherall
The Counter-Measures team wake on a luxury cruise, with no knowledge of how and when they got onboard. Who has brought them here, and why?
As their investigations deepen, they find themselves in the middle of an international conspiracy, with enemies on both sides. How can they escape when they can’t even trust each other?
3. My Enemy’s Enemy by Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky
Glamorous international arms dealer, Lady Suzanne Clare, has come to town and is offering herself into the hands of Counter-Measures. The price: her own safety. But can their former nemesis ever really be trusted?
With one of their own side seemingly working for the enemy, the race is on to prevent a disaster. But who are they really fighting? And what does Lady Clare really want?
4. Time of the Intelligence by Andy Frankham-Allen
A strange voice is interrupting TV broadcasts across the capital, and bear-like creatures are raiding factories, stealing equipment and killing guards. The Great Intelligence and his army of Yeti have returned. And there’s only one team that can stop them.
Familiar with their foe, Sir Toby calls on the help of Edward Travers to defeat the menace. But without the Doctor to help them, can the Intelligence ever be stopped?
