Now that the first of the new audio adventures - Rebel - is available on CD rather than the stupid streaming-only broadcasting method they had previously, I've been able to give it a proper listening too. And I have to say that I'm reasonably impressed.

As most of you know, it is basically telling the story of the the first three TV episodes but in a different way and with different actors. I found that it covered enough of the same ground to be reassuringly familiar but with enough differences to feel like I'm listening to something new.

On specifics, though Jenna (Carrie Dobro) speaking with an American accent jarred a little at first, I soon realised that - especially with audio - it helped in letting you know who was speaking.

One of the big differences, of course, is that there is a new crew member - Lora Mezin (India Fisher), who was a Federation officer that escorted Blake, Avon and Jenna over onto the Liberator and ended up part of the crew. How she will turn out, I don't know. It is a little early, she has not had much to do yet in terms of being part of the crew. Hopefully, I'll know more after the second CD.

I was most impressed with Dean Harris' portrayal of Vila. That really worked for me. Derek Riddell took a bit of getting used to as Blake, but on the second listening of the CD I warmed to him, so I'm looking forward to hearing more of what he has to offer. Colin Salmon as Avon hasn't really shone for me yet; hopefully he'll get better. My jury is also out on the new Servalan and Travis.

Overall, it is a good start and I do want to carry on listening. But I'm not going to muck about with three-minute-block streaming, I'll wait for the next CD.

I've been listening to the online versions.... I tend to leave it for a while, and then listen to several episodes in one go... it took me a while to get used to the different voices, but I've been quite enjoying the series overall

I think the dialogue gets noticeably better with the later eps and Avon has some better lines...
