Rebecca's World and The Adventures of Luther Arkwright
Spaceresearcher
Firstly I realise there's a Big Finish audio releases section but I wanted to highlight these and bring them to everyone's attention because they both star Paul Darrow.
I also didn't notice any mention of these terrific titles in that section and it seems to be more of a Dr Who, Survivor's and Avengers discussion forum in any case.

Please note you will find these on the Big Finish site by selecting: Ranges, Audio Books and Selecting see all in this range.

Rebecca's World (Double CD)
This title is also of extreme importance as it was written by Terry Nation. This tale is designed for children but it's also great for adults like us. It's a delightful tale and features some of Paul's best reading work in my humble opinion. He's really giving it his all and accompanied with great sound effects and incidental music it's practically a terrific dramatised audio. I got a lot of laughs and really enjoyed it. Not surprisingly Paul plays the bad guys extremely well and I found these the most interesting characters of all. Terry wrote this tale for his daughter and it's very imaginative and well written(as you would expect from Terry Nation). If you enjoy the odd children's tale or have children who are after a good story then this should not disappoint.

The Adventures Of Luther Arkwright. (Triple CD).
THIS TITLE IS NOT FOR CHILDREN. [Verbose language, Sexual scenes and Violence so raters would probably give this one at least an MA only rating].
Totally enthralled with this adventure. It's full cast dramatised audio as well, not just a reading and stars not only Paul Darrow but David Tennant as well. The story first appeared during the 80s and early 90s as a series of graphic novels. It's very interesting as Luther can move through different dimensions(his different girl friends within those dimensions make for some interesting drama), but most of all it's the intense nature of the story that got me wanting to relisten to this pronto, it's multi dimensional story line makes it practically irresistable to the avid scifi fan and I'm going to be looking for the comic books with this one for certain.

Notice I didn't really give much away about the story etc on these, I didn't want to give reviews just a little about what I found so that other fans out there can obtain and enjoy them all without knowing much about them.(Like I found myself when I chanced upon them). Needless to say your all in for some terrific surprises and I only wish I'd grabbed these sooner as there both superb works. The best part of all is that there both available for bargain prices and will compliment your Blakes 7 audio listening nicely.

Enjoy and I look forward to reading about what other fans think of them.

Purchased both SR and enjoyed hugely, particularly Rebecca's world ( recommended by Mistletoe) and very magical.

I'm really pleased you liked Rebecca's World! I knew you would! Grin I recommend the CD to anyone who will listen. Definitely one of those *go to* disks whenever RL is too harsh - it never fails to make me smile. And it goes without saying Paul's performance throughout is sublime. I won't give anything away, for those who haven't heard it ... but whilst I love all the 'voices', my favourites are probably Mr Glister and The Big Mouth.

I have listened to both Luther Arkwright and Rebecca's World, but I'm afraid I don't really remember too much about either of them! Time for a relisten of them at some point mayhaps...
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

I've blessed the recommendation many times Mistletoe. It's a wonderful story and a bravura performance by Mr Darrow. I actually love him as Rebecca! He really makes her come alive for me.

"So Rebecca went over and touched it!" Yes, I know exactly what you mean about the Rebecca delivery. Grin

I enjoyed Luther Arkwright and I love Paul Darrow in Rebecca's World!
I happened to find those two productions a few years ago, but I can't remeber I mentioned about them here. Strange...

I remember reading Rebecca's World whilst at junior school. Seems like a bargain for 5 so think I will indulge myself in a little nostalgia fest.

Thanks for sharing everyone. So very pleased everyone loves Rebecca's World, it's a terrific story. If only I'd had that as a kid instead of Bur Rabbit(so inferior to Wind in the Willows).

When I look through my telescope at the moon and stars, I think of Rebecca's World now. Smile

Be prepared to be dazzled and enjoy. Paul is seriously AMAZING on this one.

Great to hear Lurena. Luther Arkwright is a terrific production indeed. Who was your favourite character? Mine was his Russian girlfriend. She was wild.

Luther Arkwright is a very disturbing story. I enjoyed it but oh boy! Cromwell is truly creepy.

True story!

I enjoyed Luther Arkwright.

Haven't listen to Rebecca's World. But I see it's very inexpensive as a download, so I'll keep it in mind.

Ela do download Rebecca's World. You'll love it!

I've just got another book on Tony Hancock...and Rebecca's World is mentioned in it..

'Tony would have taken greater delight in the 1975 fantasy novella for children by his friend, the Dalek creator, Terry Nation. Rebecca's World features another alter ego for the comedian, the character of Mr Grisby, 'who has the most painful feet in the universe...he wasn't very cheerful, but at least he was friendly'.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

That's interesting, Sue! "Boils, bunions, verrucas ... "

Rebecca's World, the book, somehow passed me by in 1975 and I would have been the right age for it. That's a shame because I ate books for breakfast and insisted they feature heavily on birthday and Christmas lists.

But hey, ho, at least I can appreciate Mr Nation's genius comic writing and all the characters through the wonderful Big Finish audio. My views on this outstanding audio/Paul's performance are documented repeatedly.

Paul plays a great girl ... but favourite is still Mr Glister, closely followed by Captain K and the Big Mouth.

Honestly, it's a firm favourite! Grin
