I'd love to see Blake's 7 rebooted. The original series had its problems: crummy "special" FX*, rubbish props**, bad sets*** and some truly abominable acting****... but the whole dystopian future thing was absolutely brilliant. About the closest thing yet to a reboot are the radio plays which are quite good, lacking as they do "special" FX, rubbish props, bad sets and include just the occasional bit of bad acting.

*The invasion from another galaxy stands out as the worst SFX. Ever!
**Orac
***Pretty much all of them were awful... but the on location stuff was usually ok.
****The bloke who played Gan, for instance. The chap who much later turned up as Uncle Ted in East Enders.
Suppose you were an idiot; suppose also that you were an XBox One owner. But I repeat myself.
