Blake's 7 remake in the works?


The online rumor mill has it that there is the possibility of a remake of Blake's 7 on the horizon.

I really enjoyed this show when I watched it, years and years ago. For me, it combined elements of Star Wars-like space opera, with the peculiar English Science Fiction sensibilities I enjoyed so much in Doctor Who. And those crazy outfits! The fact that the series was sequential, telling  a complete story, was a draw as well, as most series tell largely independent stories in each episode.

And the series finale? Blew my mind.

  2. Hope that it then will either be a British remake or something like a Joss Whedon one... Also loved the series. Cheers!

  3. Blake's 7 taught me I liked science fiction. Also I happened to live near the china clay pits where all the desert exteriors were filmed.

  4. Wasn't Firefly just "Blake's 7" with the serial numbers filed off?

  5. I loved this show. My first Traveller campaign borrowed from it a LOT.
