Blake's 7 and Doctor Who star Paul Darrow has died aged 78 following a short illness. The Surrey-born actor was best known for playing Kerr Avon in BBC sci-fi series Blake's 7 during the 70s and 80s, but also appeared in more than 200 other shows including The Saint, Z Cars, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Little Britain.

Like many Americans, I happened to catch a rerun of Blake's 7 by accident one night while waiting for Doctor Who to air on a local PBS channel. It was like a dark, twisted version of Star Trek, and the series finale was more shocking than any other television series I've ever seen. I've heard rumours for years about a revival (now out of the question) or reboot of the show.

The best part is nobody actually knows who this guy is and yet still didn't type "who?".
