Plot logic, betrayal and tragedy makes for a heady combination
2 September 2018 | by martin-31650See all my reviews

This episode was shocking when it first aired in 1979. It changed the rules as far as the series was concerned, making it by far the edgiest SF we had seen on British television. It held this mantle right up to Edge of Darkness (the TV series, not the film) years later. If you leave the shock ending aside, you're left with a story told in the SF genre that would have stood up as a Le Carré thriller, complete with an intellectually devastating (and yet inevitable, if only we had had time to think about it, which we never do) conclusion. Beginning with a typically Blake's 7 premise of Cold War cruelty and betrayal, it builds without ever allowing a chink of implausibility to alleviate the tension. This is not an episode you can rewatch often. It is too raw and shocking. But it is one of the most important reasons why Blake's 7 should not be forgotten.
