Big Finish Blake’s 7 Liberator Chronicles VII

In this story, Avon and Vila have a job for Blake to steal some data from a Federation base that is being decommissioned. The data is being transferred to the new base physically so they can steal the old copy while Liberator creates a diversion, threatening the new data in flight. Things get weird when Vila meets a girl and is convinced to do another job, stealing precious jems. And there is a report of the Liberator being destroyed so Vila is convinced they’re on their own. Avon, on the other hand, has other plans.

This story is told from Vila’s perspective so we get to hear the little things, about how her hair looks and how he feels about her vs. Avon. This is obviously early on in Vila’s time aboard the Liberator so he doesn’t quite understand how often the Liberator is “destroyed” in the reports. I really enjoyed this all, even up to the “surprise” ending. Which isn’t really a shock as I really did expect it would happen somehow, I just wasn’t sure of the details. And there ya have it. A good story all around!
