    Blake’s 7 turns (gulp) 40!

    While it may be difficult for some to come to grips with the fact that Doctor Who  premiered some 55 years ago in 1963, it’s a bit more difficult for me to grasp that Blake’s 7, the creation of Terry Nation (who had already wreaked havoc on The Doctor with his creation of the Daleks), has just turned […]
