And a festive Gauda Prime Day greeting to my fellow members of the Church of Boucher. :-)

And so it came to pass that 34 years ago, many of us were looking forward to the season finale of the fourth season of Blake's 7. It was obviously going to be a cliffhanger, because that's what they always did.

We're still hanging on the edge of that cliff...

It is the winter solstice today, and more importantly for one small church, the Church of Boucher, it is one of our main feast days. Ladies and gentleman, raise a glass of good cheer angst to the man who killed Christmas. Happy Gauda Prime Day!

And a very happy Gauda Prime Day to you all, troopers. Alas, I have no presents to leave under the tree farm today, but fear not, I intend to continue with the zine upload as soon as my hands are recovered enough for that amount of mousing.

I regret to inform you that I will not be taking part in the annual Blake wake on Twitter tonight, owing to being geographically challenged. :-(

Peter Anghelides, former B7 fanzine editor and current pro novelist, talks about his visit to the set on the penultimate shooting day for "Blake". Good times. :-)

From Alteriel:

I'll be watching "Blake" tonight, starting at 8.10pm, and tweeting as I watch: #GaudaPrimeDay


I shall endeavour to do the same. Let's get it trending, troopers.

Thirty years ago tonight, the BBC broadcast the last episode of Blake's 7. Yes, that episode, the one that even non-fans remember. Thirty years since Chris Boucher ruined everyone's Christmas. Or, looked at from another perspective, gave angst fans their best Christmas present ever.

And it was the gift that just kept on giving, as far as fanfic was concerned. It's still inspiring stories. But the ones I've got under the G-P tree farm are from the 20th Anniversary Wake. Tales 5 and 6 are now available for your reading pleasure at the zine website on WordPress.
