With the recent announcement that the SyFy network has ordered a full thirteen episode series of a reimagined version of Blake’s 7, we thought it would be a great time to start moving forward with another project we’ve had on the back burner for awhile: Standard by Seven, a Blake’s 7 fan site and blog similar to Time and The – !.
A Web site is under development that will feature news regarding the new series as it becomes available, as well as the original series that ran from 1978 – 1981. In the meantime, Sx7 is on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. We’re also launching a Blake’s 7 fan community on Google+, as well.
Blake’s 7 was created by Terry Nation, who also created the Daleks in Doctor Who. His First Doctor serial, The Keys of Marinus, which was originally broadcast in 1964, explores many of the same dystopian themes that Blake’s 7 is famous for.
Are you looking forward to the reimagined Blake’s 7? Let us know in the comments!
Daniel is the owner and Managing Editor of Time and The – !. He's been a fan of Doctor Who since watching Tom Baker regenerate into Peter Davison on his local PBS station as a kid. He launched Time and The – ! in 2011 after having the bright (?) idea to watch every Doctor Who story from the beginning and blog about it. (Yeah, he's way behind.)
