The team spot Servelan in the distance.The apostrophe: Is Blake's 7 actually "Blakes 7"? Twenty years on and grammarians still get upset.

Who are the seven? Blake's 7 wasn't just bad at grammar - counting is also problem. As the cast goes up and down, it becomes a hot topic as to who are the seven characters in the title. Does the seven include Blake? Do the computers count? Or the ship? And what about when Blake leaves?

Will Blake's 7 return? Blake's 7 has already come back twice as a radio play, but there were efforts to bring the series back in the mid 80's (apparently scotched by the cost of Daytime TV). There were plans a couple of years ago to produce a TV movie about the Napoleon-like imprisonment of Avon.
