May 13, 2014 5:50 AM Subscribe
Before there was Firefly
, after there was Star Trek
, in between there was… Blake's 7 (previously)
. The BBC's dystopian space opera
ran for four series, ended with arguably the bleakest finale in sci-fi TV, yet never achieved popularity in proportion to its influence. To accompany its DVD release, documentary filmmaker Kevin Jon Davies prepared making-of videos for the first three series, which he has now posted YouTube: Series 1
, Series 2
, Series 3
. Learn the origins of Blake's dysfunctional band of freedom-fighters, the secrets of the show's horrible SFX, watch the cast read aloud their worst reviews, and much more!
