SFX issue 4

September 1995

SFX historical notes: The following comes from a feature about a reunion of the original main cast members of Blake’s 7 .

Character assassination!

We asked the original Blake’s 7 cast to sum up their characters in just one, simple word...

Blake (Gareth Thomas) “Er, I can't say ‘stupid’, can I? How about ‘dedicated’?”

Avon (Paul Darrow) “Trustworthy.”

Villa (Michael Keating) “Sensible.”

Jenna (Sally Knyvette) “Em, let me think about that. [Thinks for a bit.] Oh, I don't know - make something up.”

Gan (David Jackson) “Dead.”

Zen (Peter Tuddenham) “Pompous.”

Orac (Peter Tuddenham) “Fussy.”

Slave (Peter Tuddenham) “Apologetic.”

Travis (Stephen Grief) “Vengeful.”

Cally (Jan Chappell) “That’s a stupid question. How would YOU answer that?”
