Fracture is the first of a new series of full-cast Blake's 7 audio plays from Big Finish. Here's my review:

Just listened to this today. While I very much enjoyed having a full cast dramatic adventure I am not a great fan of these supernatural type stories. This would have made a good Sapphire and Steel but IMHOP it was not really Blakes 7.

I found the rather lengthy back and forth of getting the characters to start distrusting each other somewhat tiresome. It seemed like it was just going over and over the same part of the story without really progressing it any.

Vila had some really good lines and MK is the only one of those on display whose voice has not changed. His performance alone made this worth listening to.

The first entry into any story line can be complex in terms of getting things spot on. This one misses, for me, and does not tick the box of being a good Blakes 7 yarn. The characters are there and from that point of view I would give this a 5 out of 10.

I am reluctant to spend money on the next one but may do so at some point in the hope that I find it more to my taste.
