I always knew Blake was actually about Illuminati infiltration of outwardly innocent organization rather than a series ending cliffhanger.
Rewatching the DVDs at the moment - up to the fifth episode - and boy do these need some Restoration Team TLC. They're pretty grim looking and appear heavily over-DVNRed in places.
Funnily enough, I have never watched this series before (was at school when it was first on and so it was out of reach) so I recently decided to borrow the DVDs from a mate. I was looking forward to a kind of camp guilty pleasure thing - but so far I have struggled. I'm up to episode five but it's heavy going - usual turgid Terry Nation scripting and great yawning stretches of tedium. I hope it will pick up soon - apparently, it only gets really good a bit further in. Someone please reassure me!!
Stick with it Richard - the second series really gets going nicely. Once Boucher's influence comes through things get better.
well the problem with the first 5 episodes is that one of them is rubbish, Time Squad, and that one of them is way beyond what they have the budget for, The Web.
And Paul Darrow is never better than in the first series. I just love the way that Avon is so out for himself and his own interests to the extent where you just can't trust him to operate the teleport. Great character interplay between him and particularly Gareth Thomas.
