So the BBC reports Blake’s 7 is poised for Sky comeback. Good news? Maybe, but this is a show which has been on the brink of revival before.

The Daily Mail ran a “where are they now” piece, but I don’t think the writer has ever seen the show:

Casting has yet to begin for the three main parts of rugged leader Blake, played in the original by Gareth Thomas, his brooding sidekick Avon, played by Paul Darrow, and beautiful but deadly Servalan, originally played by Jacqueline Pearce.

“Sidekick”. If you ask Avon, Blake is the sidekick.

Thanks Jason and Ann for the heads up!
