Adventures with the Wife and Blake Book 2: The Avon Years
One woman's incredibly sweary, completely unofficial, but occasionally insightful guide to the final 26 episodes of the cult BBC science fiction series Blake's 7. This book collects the second half of the moderately successful Adventures with the Wife and Blake blog ('Aftermath' to 'Blake') and includes a new introduction, episode annotations, an interview with Sue and a foreword by Una McCormack More
"It'll be awfully crowded when Blake and Jenna get back..."
In January 2011, Neil Perryman convinced his wife, Sue, to watch 700 episodes of Doctor Who with him for a blog called Adventures with the Wife in Space. It was so successful, it spawned a sequel - Adventures with the Wife and Blake, in which Sue Perryman gamely watched every episode of Blake's 7, a series she'd studiously managed to avoid for 36 years.
This volume collects Sue's commentary for the final 26 episodes of that ground-breaking series ('Aftermath' to 'Blake'), when Avon went mad, Tarrant's perm reigned supreme, and the galaxy was staffed by snowmobilers with graduated bobs. What did Sue make of it? Did she miss Blake? Did she pine for Zen? How long did it take her to ask "Why is it Servalan?" PLUS: *that* episode (yes, 'Animals' *is* included).
The book includes a foreword by Una McCormack, a new Introduction, a new interview with Sue, plus exclusive episode annotations.
