Blake’s 7 revival????

by on May.31, 2001, under Television

First, they were talking about new Who…now Blake’s 7??? According to Dark Horizons (search for it on the page), BBC top exec Andrew Sewell was recently at a convention and mentioned plans to revive it with a TV movie, set 20 years after the events of the ’70s series. The script is in its second draft and no one is attached, but it does mention that the only character to return would be Avon, played by Paul Darrow in the original. Personally, I’d like to see an updated version of the original plot, but definitely get Peter Tuddenham back as the voice of Zen.

Not a bad take for an ogre. Is this good news (acceptance of CGI) or bad news (it wasn’t theirs) for Disney/Pixar’s next feature, Monsters, Inc.?
