Star Cops - from Big Finish
Joe Dredd
David Calder, Trevor Cooper and Linda Newton reprise their roles in Big Finish's new audio line: Star Cops relaunches.
 
Angry Angel
That seems like a good show to transfer into audio form, it didn't run for very long and you can tell all sorts of stories.

Yes that series had so much potential, and the audio medium is a great way for that series to be expanded.

I am *so* looking forward to this, I loved the original!

... but .8 wonder why Chris Boucher is not the author of any of the stories?
Maybe if he just does some of his usual superb script editing, that'll allow some of his brilliant magic into the dialog...
 
President Solvite
Yes indeed which other movies shall he pinch from? I mean that as a compliment of course. He mentioned a quote he wanted to use in one of the Together Again interviews which would probably work either here or in Blakes 7.

But IMO This is what I want Big Finish to be doing...

Whilst I don't mind infilling the odd gap here and there within a series, I, personally would like a series expansion, ie. continuing on from the conclusion from whichever series they do whether it is Who, Blakes 7 or Star Cops. So long as it ties in with the generally accepted canon and doesn't do anything too extreme I am all for this. Dare I say I am actually excited at both this and the Blake's 7 Way Ahead Story (mentioned elsewhere)

I never saw the original, but my curiosity is aroused by this.

Ahh its good stuff, and was just getting into a nice natural flow when it got cancelled. Exacerbated by industrial action in the BBC at the time.

Might be on YouTube somewhere.. Not sure if DVD's are still available

I don’t think it made it onto Australian television. I remember UK friends talking about it. If it had been around I would have watched it because of the Chris Boucher connection.

All 9 episodes are on YouTube. I watched them all only last month. Think the channel name is Whoivian69 or similar. They all in 10 minute parts though.

I will be pre-ordering the two sets as soon as money allows. Only £45 for the download bundle.

Star Cops - Mother Earth Part 1 - 30th June 2018.

Star Cops debuted on BBC2 in 1987, the brainchild of Doctor Who and Blake's 7 writer Chris Boucher, aimed as a police procedural set in the new frontier of commercialised space exploration. Mother Earth Part 1 contains four stories:

1.1 One of Our Cops is Missing by Andrew Smith.
1.2 Tranquility and Other Illusions by Ian Potter.
1.3 Lockdown by Christopher Hatherall and
1.4 The Thousand Ton Bomb by Guy Adams.

The series hero Nathan Spring is played by David Calder, one of Britain's most regarded stage and screen actors. He is joined by several new characters created for these fresh Star Cops adventures, with Priya Basu played by Eastenders regular Rakhee Thakrar. CAST: David Calder (Nathan Spring / Box), Trevor Cooper (Colin Devis), Linda Newton (Pal Kenzy), Rakhee Thakrar (Priya Basu), Philip Olivier (Paul Bailey).
