Siren FM radio today

Just a quick note to UK listeners (and international ones as time zones allow) to tune in to Siren FM from 5.25 BST tonight, as their drivetime programme will feature not only myself (Alan Stevens), but also Daniel Blythe, author of Virgin-era and RTD-era Doctor Who novels, and Richard Martin, director of such classic Doctor Who serials as The Dalek Invasion of Earth, The Web Planet and The Chase. You can listen live to Siren here.

New article: Spiral Conflict

This month, we begin a new series of additions to our on-site Features. Some time ago, Alan wrote two articles and a script for a short comic for the Blake's 7 zine Scorpio Attack!, but unfortunately it ceased production before they could be published. We have obtained the editor's permission to include these pieces on, and will do so over the coming months. We start with Spiral Conflict: Blake's 7's Galactic and Intergalactic Wars, an insightful piece for fans of the series arguing that what is sometimes taken as a script editing error is in fact a complicated political arc running through Seasons Three and Four.
