One thought on “313 – Blakes 7 – Headhunter”

  1. When young me saw this episode in 1980 it only took three seconds to start shouting at the TV “That’s not Muller! That’s a robot!” Did the director really think anyone was going to be fooled?

    Orac is helpful! Soolin does something! Wonders will never cease.

    I wonder how difficult it was for the BBC to create the _adorable_ computer countdown that takes several seconds to display each digit. It really underscores just how long ago Blakes 7 was.

    Those motorcycle helmets as space helmets just aren’t cutting it.

    Although Soolin’s “You wouldn’t know where to begin” was good, Avon again gets the best line: “Tarrant, what have you got up there apart from yourself, a half-wit and a corpse?”
