They were the two most important and prolific writers of B7 - but which one wrote the better scripts?

Both good but I like Terry Nation's B7 scripts best.

Boucher. Better characterisation, witty lines, often quoted from a alrge array of toher films and plays and greater depth.

However, as script editor Boucher must take some blame for the huge plot holes in the story and the fact that some bad quality scripts by other writers like Alan Prior, Follett and Ben Steed saw the light of day, especially when they occassionally do not even make sense.

Nation's The Way Back is superb and none of his other scripts quite live up to this opening. I understand Boucher helped him greatly as well though, padding out hte stories and adding depth.

Boucher`s were a bit more complex and Nation`s basically ROBIN HOOD IN SPACE - both about even but I went for Boucher!

Maybe I misread this but I voted for Terry Nation
because he was the creator of B7 and the Daleks else there
would have been no reason for Chris boucher to write those
scripts at all...just makes sense...
I did enjoy Chris B's script writing though

They were both good in their own ways, but I voted for Terry Nation.
