Episode 10: Unlimited Cosmic Gan

As opposed to a limited cosmic Gan?

Gan is the focus of this week’s episode. Get ready, because that basically means for the next 13 he probably won’t even get a speaking line. That’s how it goes, there’s 13 episodes in a season, one focusing on each crew member (that makes 7 if you include Zen) plus then like 5 more for Avon (for obvious reasons) plus an extra for Blake. It’s Breakdown, written by Terry Nation and aired on March 6th, 1978.

Episode 1: Really Well Planned Rebellion

Every rebellion needs a plan that will immediately fall apart.

It’s the start of a brand new era in podcasting, and a brand new era in television.  It all started with “hey we should do Blake’s 7” and look here we are. Episode 1. Unsurprisingly it seems impossible to talk about Blake’s 7 without mentioning Doctor Who. Well, at least we started. It’s The Way Back, written by Terry Nation, and aired on January 2, 1978.
