Re: Rewatching Blake's 7


Quite an enjoyable episode. A classic 70s whodunnit with cool scheming by Avon. The guest cast are well portioned, the story holds it's own, the only let down it Avon is forced to write the murderer's name on a bit of paper rather than tell the others about it.


Douglas Camfield's only contribution to the series is a tight episode, with a space battle no less and the first appearance of the Federation Pursuit Ships and mutoids. Stephen Grief gives Travis a lot of depth in this episode, which is in contract to the performance of Brian Croucher in the same role in series B. The only downside is the ramming scene, which is filled with typical 70s BBC effects.
