Episode 45: Metallic But Flexible

You ever notice that all metal is flexible? No? Just me?

This week we get a much much better episode of Blake’s 7 than last week. Which is honestly a huge relief. Was really expecting us to be in the dumps for the next five weeks. But good old Roger Parkes is here to save us. It’s Headhunter, written by Roger Parkes and aired on November 2, 1981.


Show-notes:


3:40 It looks like the latest info estimates a 1.3:1 ratio of bacteria to human cells in the human body.
5:39 Here’s the full Pointless Celebrities episode featuring Paul Darrow and Michael Keating. It also has some other no-name actors from small-time franchises that nobody’s heard of like Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who.
7:38 It was @chrisridd. Thanks @chrisridd.
8:44 Foundation is a book series by Isaac Asimov. Books are lame though, so I haven’t read it.
22:43The Rocketeer
28:36 Making Blake’s 7 is the best account on twitter.
54:37 Space Fall is another Blake’s 7 podcast done by fans who are a lot more knowledgeable than we are.
58:52 Janet Fielding and Sarah Sutton

Episode 93: Don’t Justify, Just Accept

Sometimes even accepting isn’t enough.

This week Kiyan and Dylan continue their Chris Boucher phase and explore his second serial in a row. That makes him just the second writer to write two consecutive serials, after Ian Stuart Black. The serial this week is The Robots of Death, aired in January and February of 1977.
