YES, it has proved to me that you can have a new vibrant updated B7 for the 21ST CENTURY , new ideas , keeping the series alive and fresh - whick means no returning characters from the old series !

A NEW SERIES FOR A NEW GENERATION !

DW has the unique format, in that, you only need a regeneration - the character evolves and, yet is recognisably the same - hence, the OLD and, NEW series are linked whatever, you think "BC"!!!

B7 doesn't have that ability. So, therefore, it needs a link from original to any new version ( Avon being the only possible chocie) to let OLD and, NEW FANS know what it's all about. Then after that has been shown and, we have a new "SEVEN" - we can dispense with the past and, that even includes, dear old Avon

Still wallowing in nostalgia for something long past - most DW fans were like that before the new series - look at the results : high viewing figures , critical acclaim , fresh look , more stylish doctor and snappy dialogue , bigger viewing figures than canything from the abysmal 80`s - even more than Tom Baker ! Yet you still wany to hark to the past and have B7 back the same with a loads of aging actors recreating their former roles ! WON`T WORK - B7 FOR THE 21ST CENTURY NEEDS TO BE SOMETHING DIFF TO SUCCEED , like The next generation was to the orig Trek !

I voted no. My view on a new B7 series is the same as it has always been - I'll wait to see what it is like, if it happens, and then make a judgement.

I'm Just A Little Skeptical That The Diaologue of The Original B7 Was By Far The Best You Can Get, Even The Liberator Was Stunning & Way Ahead of It's Time. I Just Don't Think, However Good The New Series, Whether It Be A Remake, New Generation or Whatever, Will Ever Be As Good As The Original. And That Could Damage B7s Reputation.

I have to agree with Carnel on this one.
B7 had unique characters that had an effect on us as viewers.
How could you replace someone like Avon, Vila or even Servalan without being compared to the original?
It can't be done.
Even introducing new characters that don't have any relationship to the old characters won't work as well.
Valentine is right, if there was to be a new series there has to be a link between old and new, whether you use Avon or even Servalan or the Federation itself.
Otherwise why call it BLAKES 7?

Still, it worked pretty well without didn't it!!!

Also, If you are so dead set on having a as, you put it a totally NEW BLAKE'S 7 (aka NEXT GENERATION) type show with no links to the original and, unique series. WHY did you watch and, enjoy it in the first place??? Also, WHY are you here discussing the series and, its characters now - IF you'd rather have a new show that has nothing to do whatsoever with BLAKE'S 7??? Just have a NEW series called something else!!!

Perhaps I am misreading, but no one is suggesting that the old cast come back full-time.

For 1-2 eps to give the new series some continuity. We're not talking about PD bouncing about like Sh*tner after a trip to the all-you-can-eat buffet!

And we're not talking about him re-creating the character as he was 25 years ago - but the character as he would be 25 years on.
