My current weird crush is Paul Darrow as Kerr Avon in Blake’s 7.
Or, rather more specifically, it’s Kerr Avon who is played by Paul Darrow… The character is who I wanna jump.
So, care to admit yours?
I’m finally getting to watch Blake’s 7, it’s been on the ‘list’ for ages, and now that Turner finally got all 4 seasons on DVD we’ve been watching. Unfortunately a little late- I went to Leister SciFi (when all but a couple cast members were in attendance) BEFORE I started watching- it was meeting a couple of them that initiated the watching to begin with. Had I gone AFTER this point I would have been far giddier and a little nervous. As it was I had no idea, and was just happy with seeing how excited Turner was.
Although, there’s a silver lining- if I had been at this point in viewing I would have been a little disturbed to have reality of age come crashing through my fantasy-land… Paul Darrow is in his 70’s now…. I could no longer lust after his younger self without seeing the flashes in my minds eye of him NOW… and that’s a little too much. Let me settle down first, then I’ll go meet the man. But it is a weird one, I know. The character is so great though, so for now I’ll just enjoy it :)
That prattled on a bit…..
-Have you thought of another plan?
-Yes. I’m going to get some sleep.
-How can you sleep with all this happening?
-With all what happening. Blake is sitting up in a tree. Travis is sitting up in another tree. Unless they’re planning to throw nuts at one another, I don’t see much of a fight developing before it gets light.

HAVE I MENTIONED LATELY HOW GOOD THE CHARACTERS IN BLAKE’S 7 ARE?!?
