Blakes Seven was one of the grittiest sci fi TV series made pre-2000. I've just finished "boxed setting" all four series and I've just had a box of rather nice starship models arrive from Shapeways. For those of you who have been lucky enough to see B7, who was your favourite character?

Its a tough one for me, I would have said Cally, but watching the lot again reminded me that I'm more of a Soolin kind of guy :)

Never heard of it.

Servalan, this a trick question?

ORAC!- though Avon (Paul Darrow) was my favourite actor!

Avon…… morally ambiguous.

Blake for me, then Avon.

Then there was Travis. Why did it always rain on him? Was it because he lied when he was seventeen?

Vila. Only character to appear in every episode.

Avon – getting the job done and damn the consequences!

Londonplod11 Feb 2019 7:32 a.m. PST

Servalan, especially after watching White Mischief

From my limited watching experience, definitely Servalan.

Poor Winston…

My favourite sci-fi show, all the way back from the 1980s, a lot of the good guys & gals got the chop, which was quite a shock for those TV days. thumbs up

Avon, although SooLin was very easy on the eye, and quick on the draw.

Friend and I were watching one episode, his dad walks through: "What 'ch watching?"
US: "Blake's Seven"
Dad: "There's only 5"
US: "yeah"
Dad: "Which one's Blake"
US: "He died in the second episode"
Dad: "huh" and walked out, never to speak of it again

Roderick Robertson Fezian11 Feb 2019 9:55 a.m. PST

Vila. Though Avon comes a close second.

Have heard of it for years but never seen an episode.

How do you decide between Avon and Servalan?

Avon / Vila / Servalan / Blake / The bloke with the eye patch who couldn't be killed

ORAC is also the voice of Liberator. Who is also the voice of Slave-1. And also the voice of K-9. Talk about getting typecast.

How do you decide between Avon and Servalan?

They were two sides of the same evil coin.

Travis was the poor mans Blake.

No-one likes Gan ? Harsh!

It was interesting because Avon and Vila were a love-hate (mostly hate) buddy-buddy and Gan and Vila were also a buddy-buddy revolving around courage. Strange crew all told.

Vila – saw the actor playing him at a convention once, when the convention said it was going to be Avon's actor. He handled it like a pro and had everyone glad it was him by the end of his talk.

One vote for Dayna !
