As I am now ‘shielding’ (oh, it’s great fun – taking the rubbish out to the bins is very naughty but the only time I get to go outside!) I decided to watch Blake’s 7 again as I found it on YouTube.
Yes, some (most?) of the acting is waaay over the top, the sets are completely pony and the fight scenes have seemingly been choreographed by someone that has never been in an argument let alone a tear up I’m sort of enjoying it – there’s a good story in there and it could be quite dark if remade today.
Also, being 7 or 8 when it started the first time round I understand why my 28 year old Dad liked it so much. Jacqueline Pearce is a serious fox!
