Way over priced.

You will have to use a credit to get this book. About the last 90 mins is nothing but interviews !!

Using a credit - this is the one to buy!


It gets a little confusing looking at the Dan Dare audiobooks; which one to buy, head scratch? If you are using an Audible ‘credit’, this one!

This is Season 1, which contains both Volume 1 + 2; a total of 6 episodes, a documentary and the music of Dan Dare. Wasn’t interested in listening to the music, just skipped it (36 minutes).

A fun romp around space, no complicated storyline to follow. Will definitely listen to any future episodes. It’s a grower, enjoyed it more as I went through the episodes. It even has Heida Reed who plays Peabody - Elizabeth from BBC’s Poldark.

The ‘only’ criticism is that it appeared as if the actors were recorded in individual booths, probably due to productions reasons/ the availability of actors, and then the vocals entwined together. This resulted in ‘heavy dialogue’ parts coming across more as joined sound bites, also the gap between vocals seemed the same so made the conversation sound unnatural.

Hope that B7 media produce some more :)

Outstanding adaptation and performance

Dipping into the past to bring to a new generation something that worked well before does not always work. Thunderbirds(Movie) and the Green Hornet(Movie) to name but to, but the list is quite long. This, however, is the exception. Great story, great acting and a perfect balance of special sound effects. I can't wait for the next one!

Not as good as the Eagle originals.

Was disappointed with this adaptation. Can't fault the performances as they are first rate but the stories lack the punch I remember from Dan Dare's adventures in The Eagle. Although even further removed from the original the animated adventures of Dan Dare explore the characters much better than this and is a better buy.

Unfortunately not for me

I loved the Dan Dare stories in the Eagle comics - this book didn't catch the spirit of the stories for me. The presentation was wrong as was the sound effects - in my opinion it just didn't work.

good performance

good performance, good voice acting ambiance, action noise all well done. stories predictable but still entertaining. documentary and music as padding was unnecessary and misleading timewise.

Back to 50s science fiction!

Really vintage sci-fi revamped. Full cast and well acted. Would love to hear more.

Dan Dare updated from the Eagle comics.

Liked the idea of a more modern Dan Dare. Still prefer the 60's comics though. Well, we all have favourites (even if they don't match what we remember.
