The latest email was the last he expected to see. Were his still-sleepy eyes playing tricks? He clicked the cursor over the offending new message, simultaneously deleting six spam emails offering various pharmaceutical deals and personal organ enhancement offers.
There could be no mistake.
The sender was none other than Neil Blissett, the topic unambiguously "B7 Sequel Project", and the message:
Just to let you all know I have just uiploaded a Sequel Project update, episode 609: Retribution written by Ewen. It's a good read. Series 7 is coming.
He let the message linger on the screen, the email file changing from bold text to normal as the computer realized the email had been read and no longer needed to be emphasized. A thought emerges from the shock:
That link at the bottom of the blog actually works...
Guess I better finish Nexus.
Should I tell him about Deciet?
Wait a minute, he's put up the crappy first draft, not the perfect version up on this very blog.
And so he sat, wondering what to do. So he went shopping, for supplies were low and animals hungry. But he'd be back....
This episode fit well with what I had in mind but couldn't quite work out how to do. It's given me a few ideas and the second episode of series 7 will now be slightly different to what I intended before I read this.
Overall a good character driven episode that manages to bring in all the crew and even allows a cameo appearance by Avon. The relationship between Blake and the others reaches breaking point with even Soolin considering abandoning him, only for circumstances to bring them back together. The emotional appeal by Avon means that Blake can now count more on the crew, a situation that will continue until the end of series 6.
