Great to see Blake's 7 on there

Yeah. I went straight for was the last of the three Blakes 7 titles (1981).

 

Oh! The memories! The smiles! The lack of budget! The cheese! :P

 

I also found this: Vila lives!.

There is a huge B7 community out there. Out of necessity, I recently joined a mailing list populated by sadder folks even more in need of fresh air and vitamins than we are here.

They spend their days speculating on whether Blake is really dead, and how it might have gone on and such things.

Unfortunately for B7 enthusiasts (is there a special name for them?) Paul Darrow (Avon) has dissociated himself from a company which wants to do some kind of a remake because he reckons they aren't being true to what the late Terry Nation would have wanted.

 

Never mind.

 

Did anyone else make their own teleport bracelet out of a Robinson's Orange juice bottle?

Sorry to dredge this up from the depths of the 1995 things to do thread (back in the good old days of LPIII God rest his soul), but in the light of the recent death of Peter Tuddenham and the fact that the Mrs and I have resultantly turned into B7 fans in a small sort of way, I thought it might be time to resurrect the subject with a view to taking a fresh look at the respective states of health of the actors in what was once described as:

What a fantastic series, Blakes 7, they don't make them like that anymore.
.

He was right too. Those guys are real stage actors of a sort you don't see nowadays.

Don't forget Jaqui Pearce (Servalan) was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of years back. Maybe not one of the least survivable cancers, but who knows what having to work with all those cheesy failed Shakespearian bit-part actors might have done to the health of the regular cast. buy the DVD and you'll know what I mean.

I offer

and
as evidence that at least one of the actors had some other work afterwards.

Actually (In case I omitted to mention it before) I walked past Paul Darrow once on the stairs of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (My chosen place of study at the time, early 90's sometime) without realising what a superstar I'd failed to wish good day to. such is life eh.

 

For those unacquainted with this masterpiece of late 70's sci-fi

is as good a starting point as any.

 

Anyone who wants to see Lesley Judd showing you how to make a teleporter bracelet on Blue Peter will have to get in touch with me personally.

 

 

And while we're on the subject, what does the panel think on the subject of the Servalan/Margaret Thatcher question? I mean bearing in mind that when Servalan first appeared on B7 (Feb '78) Thatcher was still quite a way from being Supreme Commander. And assuming that I am not alone in finding Servalan quite sexy and Magaret Thatcher not at all sexy, what is this all about?

I would definitely classify Dempsey and Makepeace as bigger and better things.

Blake's 7 was nothing more than Crossroads in Outer Space.

Wobbly sets and more ham than Porky Pig.

The kind of programme to reminisce about and ask "Were programmes really this crap in the 70s?"

Give me Glynis Barber anyday.

In hindsight that could be the case, but I remember vividly being too scared to sleep in my own room after watching an episode when I was about 8, the trapdoor to the attic was in my bedroom and I was terrified some slimy monster was hiding up there, took my parents days to convince me to sleep back in there, then again watching 'The Shining' had the same effect on me and I was 22 at the time!

Most programmes in the 1970s had wobbly sets, from 'The Six Wives of Henry VIII' to 'Fawlty Towers'....it was the way TV programmes were made then.

 

My memories of the show were rather hazy. I can remember when when they were still on The Liberator, but I was a bit confused why it was called Blake's 7, when Blake was nowhere to be seen and Avon was the hero. But then 4-year-olds weren't aware of things like 'back story'..... :P

Funnily enough, LG, I too had a attic hatch in my bedroom, at about the same age.

I used to hear birds and monsters in there every night. Im amazed that after all that torment I didnt end up mentally unstable like BS.

In all fairness B7 was no worse than anything else at the time and considerably beter than some.

Perhaps we tend to confuse the nostalgia with the quality?

Admittedly many of the bit parts were given to third-rate would be Shakesperian luvvies, that's one of the cheapnesses that make it so bad it's good, but the likes of Darrow and Thomas were real, good actors with the sort of stage voice you don't hear on telly any more. Sort of almost like Michelle Dotrice in Some Mothers but without actually shouting their heads off like she did.

My sister and I used to see large spiders scuttling round our room, mostly when we were suffering from a cold. Strangely these sightings stopped when a certain child's cold remedy was taken off the market for causing quite severe hallucinations. I'm still getting flashbacks now, although that may be more related to consensual hallucinogenic consumption in later life

Blake's 7 to be revived?

 

But didn't they all get shot dead within the space of about 30 seconds, after surviving everything the Universe could throw at them for æons?

I remembered B7 from when I was a kid, so jumped at the chance to buy the DVDs. I was on one of those mailing lists/web forums for a little while as well, until I got a life - and started lurking on Deathlist... Yes, some very, very strange people on there, especially the women who obsess over Paul Darrow (the bloke who played Avon.)

 

 

Anyway, here are some stats for you punters. The ones to watch are:

 

Gareth Thomas (Blake) born 1945 - health okay but drinks heavily. Very overweight.

 

Paul Darrow (Avon) born 1941 - looks a little haggard and chain smoker.

 

Jacqueline Pearce (Servalan) born 1943 - Survived a bout of breast cancer a few years ago. Recently emigrated to South Africa. Very, very eccentric. Listen to the commentaries on the DVDs and everyone is "daaarling" like an English answer to Australia's Jeannie Little...

 

The other, still living actors are:

Michael Keating (Vila) born 1947 - no real health info. Only tidbit is that he was partially blinded in one eye by a special effect explosion when making the show. Maybe one day he won't see a bus coming out of the corner of his eye as he crosses the road... Any stats on partial blindness leading to reduced life expectancy?

 

Jan Chappell (Cally) born 1949 - no info on health.

 

Josette Simon (Dayna) born 1960 - no info. Most active of cast, in many stage and theatre productions.

 

Steven Pacey (Tarrant) born 1957 - no info. Seems fairly active in lots of plays, radio dramas and so on.

 

Glynis Barber (Soolin) born 1955 - still acting and still fairly sexy.

 

Sally Knyvette (Jenna) no birth date - runs an acting school. No health info.

 

Stephen Greif (first actor to play Travis) - born 1949. Still active in acting and narrates many audio books.

 

Brian Croucher (second actor to play Travis) - no birth date available. According to someone on that B7 site when I was a member, his acting career totally flopped and he was last known to be driving taxis. If a passenger becomes aggressive, his life expectancy might fall very suddenly...

 

The Dead:

 

Peter Tuddenham (voice of the Zen, Orac and Slave computers): 1918 - 2007.

 

David Jackson (Gan): 1934 - 2005

 

 

Th-the-tha-that's all folks! Hope this info helps, you morbid b*stards! :)

Do we have a Doctor Who thread? Went looking and I couldn't find one so I'll add these notes to this other BBC SF. Mr Moderator, please move if necessary....

 

 

 

Doc Who doesn't have the greatest track record for longevity.

 

The wonderful first actor, "Edwardian Grandfather Doctor" William Hartnell, died relatively young after suffering from undiagnosed arterio-sclerosis for many years. Though he looked postivley ancient as the Doctor, he was only 55 when he took on the role and 67 when he died.

 

"Tramp Doctor" Patrick Troughton was also only 67 after neglecting his health for many years. He dropped dead at a Dr Who fan convention in the USA.

 

"Arrogant Dandy doctor" Jon Pertwee also dropped dead suddenly at a convention, aged 76.

 

"Replacement First Doc" Richard Hurndall also suffered a heart attack, albeit also in his 70s (73).

 

 

Roger Delgado, who played the Master, died aged 55 from a car crash.

Series creator Verity Lambert died from cancer a few years ago.

First companion, Jacqueline Hill died aged at the relatively young age of 63 from breast cancer.

 

********************************

 

Of the survivors:

 

"Totally eccentric Bohemian Doctor" Tom Baker is aged 75 and, by his own admission, an alcoholic. Still active as an actor, though.

 

"Pacifist Doctor" Peter Davison is 58 and looks far, far healthier than most of the others. Still on television. From reading the internet, one gains the impression he is either a wondefully warm man in real life or a horrible, boozy slob.

 

"Garish" Doctor Colin Baker is enormously obese (an interview with him on Youtube I just saw inspired me to write this post:

) Aged 66. Remembered more for companion Peri (she of the gigantic mammories.)

 

"Foppish Scotsman" Doctor Sylvester McCoy is 66. His career seems to have rightfully imploded, like that of Colin Baker, after his dreadful performance. Remembered more for companion Ace (she of the sexy tomboy attitude.) Looks quite old.

 

"TV Film" Doctor Paul MCGann is 49 and still reasonably active in films.

 

"Boring" Doctor Christopher Ecclestone is also 49. Should be shot for crimes against humanity for being involved in the awful "New Who" revival.

 

"Bloody awful" Doctor David Tennant is 38. No health issues but should be shot for crimes against good acting. Chance of being ripped to shreds by sex-mad teenage girls and middle-aged housewives who find him hot. Responsible for most ofthe atrocity that is "New Who."

 

"Mule face" Doctor Matt Smith is 27 so not much risk there of either illness or being mauled by teenage girls since he is, by all accounts, incredibly ugly. Anyone who does us the favour of getting Tennant off the screen deserves a long and healthy life as a reward.

 

 

Most of the early companions, such as Wendy Padbury, Frazer Hines, Deobrah Watling, Carol Ann Ford and Maureen O'Brien seem to be in good health but they are all in their sixties now so perhaps one should start to monitor them a little closely.

 

 

Well, that is a long post from someone who does not even like the show....

 

 

On another note, the two main stars of that other (superior) BBC time-travel effort "Adam Adamant Lives!" are both still, well, alive.

 

 

Gerald Harper is 80 and seemed rather active, if a little forgetful and doddery, on the DVD released a little while ago.

 

Super-babe Juliet Harmer is only 66.

Hmmm, a devotee to Adam Adamant?

You must be quite ancient then.

I, on the other hand, may have seen it while having a wee on my Tommee Tippee.

a few years ago. Know what I'm saying...:blink:

No, not meant to be nasty in tone! ;) (Unless you are a fan of David Bloody Tennant, that is!)

 

 

I only discovered Adam Adamant a while ago on DVD and, yes, I honestly enjoyed it more than Doc Who, probably because the episodes are short and more "watchable' in one sitting, rather than trying to binge on an entire old Doc Who serial. Really love the Hartnell era besides that and, yes, Hartnell and Troughton each have more talent in their little fingers than the entire cast of AA but, still, I prefer the latter.

 

No, I didn't know about Harper enjoying himself in Thailand. :blink: If nothing else, I guess that means the old boy still has some life left in him.... :blink:

 

Back on topic, Colin Baker is obese and Tom Baker is, BY HIS OWN ADMISSION, a drunkard. Who do we think will go first?

I think a much more interesting thread would be: Which Dr Who assistant did you used to wink off to the most?

 

BTW, I believe Super-babe Juliet Harmer used to be married to William Squire who played Hunter in the TV series Callan. I dunno how he scored her considering he was about 30 years her senior.

Still no Doctor Who thread, so noting here the death aged 57 of Jonathan Battersby, retired president of the Life Insurance Association who also had a career as an actor and made 2 "Who" appearances earlier this year, as well as featuring in "Emmerdale" and "Taggart" and narrating the documentary "Churchill's War".

 

Quite an interesting double career!
