I’m sure it was a Tuesday evening that mum used to send me and my brother off to York City Baths Club. I never have been a swimmer but I remember rushing home afterwards to watch one of my favourite TV science fiction series – Blake’s 7!
Although I really liked Dr Who at this time, Blake’s 7 was something different. looking back at it, it looks dated and slightly ‘jittery’ but the characters were brilliant, from the moody Avon and cowardly Vila to my favourite character of Cally the telepath. Couple these with the arrogance of Orac and the steadfastness of Zen the onboard ship computer, you had a perfect evening programme….confirmed!
