Storyline

Awful edit of excellent series.
23 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

'Blake's 7' is a wonderful sci-fi classic that is rightfully compared to Doctor Who, Star Trek and Babylon 5. So why did the BBC feel the need to hack half the story out of four episodes and edit them together into this mess? Clearly, someone at the Beeb has seen the light, as all episodes of 'Blake's 7' have now been reissued uncut. Viewers should save their money for the videos 'The Way Back'/'Spacefall' and 'Cygnus Alpha'/'Time Squad' and enjoy the stories in full.
