[edit]

I PROTEST strongly against the latest series of Blake's Seven (Mondays BBC1). This once excellent programme has been reduced to the level of Doctor Who - mindless, childish trivia. The main strength of the previous series lay in the attention given to the development of the characters. I used to enjoy the intelligent dialogue and subtle interplay of personalities. Look at the programme now - what has happened?

I can only presume that the producer has found new scriptwriters. True, the plots are as obvious, stereotyped and unoriginal as ever - no change there! - but the characterisation has sadly lapsed ...
