What is the best Series-end cliffhanger? I include Series Four, of course, if it coud be imagined continuing.

Series One - Orac
Orac shows an image of Liberator being destroyed, horrifying the crew

Series Two - Star One
The crew prepare to hold off the alien fleet, until Federation ships arrive

Series Three - Terminal
As Servalan tries to escape using teleport, the Liberator explodes

Series Four - Blake
With the sound of a hail of gunfire, the credits appear

I'm voting for Star One as the threat of the aliens' getting through is quite a thought!

Likewise, after two years of trying to bring down the Federation, our heroes realise it is the only thing big and tough enough to save everybody!

Difficult choice

But I'd also go for Star One . Having tried all series to destory the Fed Symbol Computer control, they end up defending it until the arrival of the Federation fleet.

I also voted for Star One ...

The ending of "Blake" is too final to be a cliff-hanger, although I think Terry Nation said they did have a way to bring back the characters... But when I first saw that episode, I was too much in shock to think there was any way they could come back

"Terminal" wraps things up a bit too neatly for me to be a real cliff-hanger - is in peril, yes, but it's a nicely ironic conclusion to her constant lust for the power of the Liberator , which is reflected in Avon 's grin at the end ... so I think it's more about that than wondering what will happen next...


With the ending of "Orac", I always thought there must be a catch because oracles are known for coming up with manipulative so-called predictions...


But the end of "Star One", ah yes, that's one of those moments where you find yourself leaping off the sofa waving your arms at the telly and shouting "NOOO! You can't leave it THERE! You &@$%@#*s!!"

Terminal was quite a good cliffhanger too, without the Liberator any more.

Voting is open indefinitely!

I voted Blake because, okay we didn't get another season, but 30 years on I've discovered that sometimes that can be the best thing, because then the fans get a chance to fill n the gap and you get some stonking good fiction out of it.

I voted for Season Two only because you can segue straight from the last line directly to that ol Arthur Brown song:

"FIRE! I'll take you to burn"



I can't belive I missed out on this thread first time around. So a special thanks to Mary Lou for giving the ol' threads some new life!

Well just to be different I've voted for the cliffhanger at the end of Season 1.

I still remember how shocking this was when I watched that episode way back in 1978!
