Season 1 – Episode 12 – Deliverance (not starring Ned Beatty) Yay. After opening with a bizarre shot of two people in a very small spaceship, we cut to Servalan. Always a good omen. She’s laying down the law to some subordinate over the intercom about not being disturbed. Makes you wonder why she didn’t […]Read more "Rewatching Blake’s 7 – Part 6"
