Blake’s 7–the Doctor Who Connections (Part 2–the Actors)

In thinking about the TV show Blake’s 7 recently (for reasons that will be coming up soon), I’ve been noting how many connections there are between that British science fiction series and another one that we all know and love, Doctor Who.

Doctor Who Convention Encounters: Elisabeth Sladen & John Leeson

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to meet a variety of my favorite Doctor Who (and other stuff as well) actors at conventions, especially back in the old days when autographs only cost the time it took to stand in line to get them. One of the big events I went to was in Chicago, November 26-28 1993–celebrating the 30th anniversary of Doctor Who, the 15th anniversary of Blake’s 7, the 10th anniversary of Robin of Sherwood, and the 6.5th anniversary (this is really how it was advertised) of Red Dwarf. Among other things, they did a special screening of the 30th anniversary special mini-episode of Doctor Who called Dimensions in Time for us.
