Blake

Episode 53: The Trial of Kerr Avon

It’s like Trial of a Time Lord but better.

It’s really hard to believe that we’re so cloes to the end. This is the latest thing I think we’ve ever listened to for Trust Your Doctor or Zenith, but not the latest thing we’ve covered (thanks Triple Play, check it out). Can you believe that we’ve done this podcast for nearly a year? That’s actually amazing. It’s The Way Ahead, written by Mark Wright and released on January 2, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:42 This site’s forum.
15:15 Michael Keating and Paul Darrow appeared on the sci fi episode of Pointless Celebrities about 2 months ago.
20:30 Simon Power was responsible for music according to the official page from Big Finish.
26:58 Logan’s Run came out in the U.S. in 1977, but I’ve heard from a couple of Blake’s 7 podcasts that it aired in the UK very close to the first episode of Blake’s 7.
50:23 These are some annoying grapes.
1:13:52 Dempsey and Makepeace is a 1985 cop show with Glynis Barber in it.

Episode 52: Let Tarrant Into Your Heart Ft. Jim

He just wants to be loved. I think.

Merry Christmas, we hope you’ll enjoy this rendition of “jingle bells, decomposing Blake smells, Avon took a bullet.” They’re all dead is what I’m saying, and frankly we had no idea when we started this podcast that Blake would fall on Christmas, which is really a rather fun coincidence. Fun might not have been the word I’m looking for actually, in retrospect. It’s Blake, written by Chris Boucher and aired on December 21, 1981.


Show-notes:


2:10 Where are you Down and Safe? Why have you not put out an episode in 40 years.
3:34 If you don’t already know, Distant Star was a proposed version of the B7 to be used in Series D with lyrics written by Vere Lorrimer. Thankfully it never came to fruition.
9:40 Check out our latest Trust Your Doctor episode, where we discuss the Wedding of River Song.
1:07:59 The IT Crowd is just some show. Nothing special to see here, just move on.
1:23:02 Check out Krynoid Podcast if you haven’t already. They’re great.

Episode 39: Spoilers Find a Way

Well, at least Kiyan doesn’t really care about spoilers anyway.

We made it! Almost. We reached the original end of this show. But then, well, it was such a big success so they decided to do another season because I guess why not? Also, if the show is good, why not make more? Although there is an argument to be made to end it when it’s still good. It’s Terminal, written by Terry Nation and aired on March 31, 1980.


Show-notes:


1:46 Making Blake’s 7 is a Twitter account that’s been detailing the production of Blake’s 7 for the past year and a half-ish. It’s going on indefinite hiatus soon, but might be back some day.
17:10 Here are just a few of the weird things slime molds can do.
44:17 Person of Interest isn’t a tv show that ran from 2011-2016.
46:30 This is official apparently. Just wait until we get to Series D.

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.


Show-notes:


0:52 Before this Vere Lorrimer directed Cygnus Alpha and Seek, Loacate, Destroy
1:00 Making Blake’s 7 is a twitter account about the making of Blake’s 7.
3:14 Check out our world famous and highly renowned Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor.
13:42 The X-29 was a plane NASA made in the 80s. Looks pretty cool I guess.
28:57 Here’s Julian Glover’s filmography.
32:53 Benedict Cumberbatch is the world’s greatest surgeon … until a freak accident with a renegade blender shreds his hands into a million pieces.
33:33 This trailer really makes me not want to watch Thor Ragnarok.
34:01 Black Panther could be one of the highest grossing superhero movies ever, or even the highest by the time it’s through in theaters.
46:26 Turns out we should have been saying Keating cause Michael Keaton is actually the other famous actor guy. Guess we got them mixed up.

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.


Show-notes:


1:22 Check out Triple Play, a monthly podcast we do about movie trilogies.
1:29 Episode 0 of Zenith explains what this podcast is “better” than this episode does.
8:21 Basically the best thing Dudley Simpson ever made.
27:05 Coming “soon.” Meanwhile, here’s a continually updates feed of all Zenith episodes.
31:46 14 years of specials.

Also check out our long-running, “fan-favorite” Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor!
