Blight free tomatoes

I grew three Crimson Crush tomato plants last year, and while they were definitely blight free, I wasn't too keen on the taste, plus they took ages to ripen and developed blossom end rot. What other blight free tomatoes have members grown and can recommend. I garden in Devon where we have a mild climate.
I've been seeding them for about 4 years based on their taste rather than because of any resistance they might show, largely because blight resistance is quite hard to quantify (but also because it's less important to me). This summer was especially dry, I didn't have blight on any of my tomatoes.
I don't tend to remove leaves from tomato plants as they ripen (life is too short) and I don't recall losing any to early-onset blight. If it's wet enough, they will succumb eventually (there's no truly resistant variety, that I'm aware of anyway). Just give them lots of space (air) and keep them off the (damp) ground.
