Could Gan flatline?  Find out if a regular star of a show, who’s even counted in the title of the series itself could possibly die of a brain malfunction in Breakdown, the latest episode of Blakes 7 to be reviewed by Ben and Eugene.

  1. Well, this was… er…

    My favourite bit was where Jenna says “there’s some inflammation around the implant scar” and we get a shot of the limiter, which appears to comprise two transistors in metal cases, a 1.8kΩ resistor and a some sort of capacitor. Combing his hair must be a very violent experience… If the limiter is a big old chunk of circuitry nestling in Gan’s curls, why do we need a brain surgeon to come in and poke around? Surely Avon and a soldering iron would suffice?

    I’m not sure I’d agree that David Jackson’s was the least convincing performance when the cast includes Gareth Thomas and Sally Knyvette.

    At the end, when Julian Glover was looking at his hands, my impression was that he was all “what have I done”?
