True science-fiction, not just space epic
2 September 2018 | by martin-31650See all my reviews

Blake's 7 improves substantially with age. It's now long enough ago for the 1970s effects to be retro, rather than just so-so. This allows the true SF nature of the series to shine. On the surface of it, this is a mundane piece of space detective work, where the crew go through a list of suspects until they are left with the only possible solution. Except that the solution fails. It is at that point when the inevitable (but entirely unexpected) result of the story-arc catches up with them, and we are treated to a true science-fiction twist based on real extrapolated science, not just a technical hand-wave attributed to 'science like magic'. I remember watching this in 1979 and being blown away by the climax. This episode also bears all the marks of Blake's 7 realism: endings are seldom happy, deaths are tragic and time is taken to mourn them, the main characters are fragile and may at any time die.
