Did You Know?


This episode gives a clue about the origins of the 'Liberator', the space ship with superior technology that Blake and his crew are allowed to take over: apparently it is a space ship abandoned during a space battle between two powers that are unknown to the crew of the Federation ship London. It is not clear, however, why a ship that appears to be undamaged has been abandoned by its original crew. See more »


Sub-Commander Raiker: [to Blake] What have we here? Not a troublemaker, I hope?
Roj Blake: I didn't hear an order.
Sub-Commander Raiker: You didn't hear an order, sir...
Sub-Commander Raiker: *SAY IT!*
Roj Blake: I didn't hear an order... sir.
Sub-Commander Raiker: That's better. What's your name?
Roj Blake: Blake.
Sub-Commander Raiker: So you're Blake. Well, made quite a name for yourself a few years back. Quite the celebrity. Something of a comedown for a leader of men, isn't it? Molesting kids?
Roj Blake: The charges were false.

A fine episode
20 May 2008 | by ( – See all my reviews

"Space Fall" is another interesting and excellently-written episode from the first season of Blake's 7. In this episode Blake, with help from Kerr Avon and Jenna Stanis, attempts to take the prison transport ship London under siege and upon failing are all sent to investigate an abandoned alien spaceship, which Blake decides to attempt an escape on.

Terry Nation proves that he has more of a talent for clever dialogue than most would give him credit for, with several exchanges in this episode being quite good. This is a good concept for the episode and continues to introduce us to the world we can expect to see for the next four seasons. Good stuff all around. Model work is excellent considering the amazingly low budget.
