    if you're as old as me ( although you are a few months ahead, and my boyish good looks do make me look younger *ducks*) you'll have watched it religiously, unless you had a life and went out and played with *gulp* friends outside.

    i wonder how much my friend's inflatable liberator is worth now ?

    (which may sound rather dodgy to the uninitiated)

    I watched it and enjoyed it (for the most part). I belong to a sci-fi fan club at the time (Dr. Who being the main focus) and Blakes 7 kind of split the group, with a bunch of the women-folk becoming Paul Darrow's completely deranged groupies, writing bizarre fan fiction that, fortunately, my brain refuses to let me remember. Something involving teddy bears and ice cream I think.

    Still... one of the best final episodes to a series I can think of.

    In. Fucking. Evitable.

    Next year's headline: "Moonbase 3 Remake Underway. Early Reports Allude To Crying, Love Triangles."

    Now, I'd be up for a decent remake of DOOMWATCH.

    doomwatch. oh yes. I used to have the plastic eaters book. I'm sure Nigel Kneale was the author.

    that and a decent re-doing of the quatermass films. (and not the godawful bbc3 re-hash that was, frankly, pish)

    I still own my hardcover of Mutant 59 that I bought for 50 cents at a Salvation Army Store when I was 15.

    I'd love to see a proper update of "The Changes"

    An Irish Uncle of mine had the whole series on some huge weird old tape format.

    I go back and forth on whether "The Stone Tape" should be remade.

    "Now, I'd be up for a decent remake of DOOMWATCH."
    Great idea - but it would have to work hard to beat ReGenesis in that subgenre.

    I watched Stone Tape again recently and it's not aged well. A good remake could work.

    The Changes blew me away when I saw it on first transmission - like a kids version of Survivors (which is also rumoured for remake).

    I'm not sure if a Sky revamp of B7 would be better or worse than the recent radio version... hard to imagine how it'd be worse, actually.

    I remember Blake's 7, I only started watching it religiously in Season 3 when they added Josette Simon to the cast. But I think Ace of Wands would be the perfect vehicle for a revival.

    No love for "Man in a Suitcase" (which got turned into 'Land of the Giants' here somehow) or "The Tomorrow People" ? I remember getting to see the last episode of Blake's 7 ... and not getting it ... then.

    Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis! They created the Cybermen and wrote most of the cyber-stories up to Tom Baker's years.

    I was in the local Star Trek group, back in day, and they regularly published fanfic/art anthologies that were just about evenly split between Trek, Blakes 7 and The Professionals. One big happy camp of TV fans in sub-tropical brisbane.

    And I will profess my juvenile love for The Tomorrow People! It was always broadcast at some time it was almost impossible for me to get to see, so I had to chase it. Ah, another thrill that technology has taken from the young'uns... :^)

    The Tomorrow People was re-done a few years ago. I never saw much of the series, but loved the novelisations when I was a kid. The scenery and acting was much better in those.

    I also got the Tomorrow People only though the novels, don't know if I ever actually got to see the show so that would explain it if it wasd on at an odd time in Bris.

    Between that and the Chrysalids, Slan, etc. I was awfully disappointed when my telepathic powers never developed.

    Wasn't the remake of Tomorrow People called Whitechapel?
