Blakes 7 on the way back

Director Martin Campbell made two James Bond movies and both of them gave the franchise a shake up, so Blake 7 fans should be delighted with the news that he is to direct a revival of the TV classic.

Blakes 7 was originally created by Terry  It was a pretty big hit right from the off, and for a show that commanded such strong ratings, it went into some brave and unexpected places for a TV sci-fi series, like having the main character framed as a child molester for a start. Right from the off Blakes 7 was a frightening view of the future, an anti Star Trek if you like.

Writer Joe Pokaski (Heroes, CSI) will pen the re-imagining of the original series created by Terry Nation, a prolific UK TV writer who also created the Daleks for the classic BBC series Doctor Who. Campbell is attached to direct the Blake’s 7 reboot, which is being shopped to U.S. networks.

This could be a good thing - don't know why but Blake's 7 simply passed me why, something i've long regretted.
