The actor best known for the lead role in 'Blake's Seven', the 1978-1981 BBC science fiction show has passed away.
I don't tend to post obituaries on the Phoenix blog but his role as freedom fighter Roj Blake was a big part of the show's success and the show was a big influence on me growing up. This dystopian work inspired the name of the character Sue Ling and indeed was the topic of the very first feature article in the site newsletter.
The galaxy is a sadder place today.
Rest in Peace.
