Paul Darrow get’s Blake’s 7 rights; mini-series planned

by on Jul.28, 2003, under Television

BBC News is reporting that actor Paul Darrow, who played Avon in the original Blake’s 7 series, has obtained the rights to the series from the widow of creator Terry Nation (also famous for creating the Daleks). A new mini-series is planned with Darrow probably the only original actor returning, and is to take place 25 years after the series. A budget is set for $5-6M (a fortune compared to what the series probably got) and is aimed for Spring 2005. I hope somehow they bring back the Liberator. A ship where the crew doesn’t even know its capabilities and its aggravating computer are what made the series for me…
