I also think Avon is the best character in Sci-fi and his and Blake's 7 influence can be seen in later shows such as Farscape and Firefly.
Most definitely. Avon is an incredible character and probably one of the most fascinating in Sci-fi TV.
Villa just, just
, nudges ahead of him for me, but it's kinda hard to imagine one without the other, a great double act and two great characters, neither of whom got neutered as the show went on. He could be heroic, but on the whole Villa remained a coward, and Avon could be caring, but on the whole he remained a cold, calculating bastard to the end.
Between them they had all the best lines too...
