Blake’s 7 Remake Scrapped

Filed under: DSV-1, TV — Tags: , , , , , — SFG @ 16:23

Sky1 has abandoned it’s plans to bring back Blake’s 7, according to the Media Guardian and other news outlets.
The Media Guardian quotes “Following the development process we have decided not to produce Blake’s 7. However, Sky continues to invest heavily in original drama and it remains at the heart of our plans,” said a spokeswoman for Sky1. “We have just announced an extended run for the second series of Chris Ryan’s Strike Back and we’ll soon be unveiling a new long-running series for prime time.

This both saddens me as well as cheers me.
This is quite possibly my all-time favourite science fiction TV show, and as such I wouldn’t like it to make a come-back and be derided. It also means I’ll not see an inferior version of the greatest space ship design ever (in my opinion).
It saddens me because it means the door has now closed – for the time being – on any possible greatness that a remake could have achieved – think the recent “re-imagining” of Battlestar Galactica.

I do still hope that this show will one day make a triumphant come-back and be as much loved again as the recent Doctor Who is now. I guess I’ll just have to wait a little bit longer.

  6. The main problem lies in where the fungus is living:
    under the nail. Our therapists will provide hands-on therapy to your plantar fascia and calf muscles.
    Ill-fitting shoes may also cause pain because they tend to squeeze the
    foot, causing the pressure inside the increase.
