It looks like the Blake’s 7 remake will be made by Microsoft to air on Xbox Live replacing Syfy on the project.
Director Martin Campbell is still however attached to the project.

Just saw the Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode The Avon Emeralds which had starred Roger Moore.
This was originally broadcast in 1959 and it was before he started playing the Saint in 1962 and whilst Moore was playing the Saint in the season 5 finale The Gadic Collection it had guest starred Paul Darrow who would later play Avon in Blake’s 7.
Blake’s 7 creator Terry Nation had written for The Saint but The Gadic Collection was not one of his episodes. From memory I am not that certain how much Nation was involved with Darrow’s casting as Avon in Blake’s 7 and it is a matter of speculation whether Nation had seen Moore in the aforementioned Alfred Hitchcock episode and whether he had remember the Avon name from this episode for him to later use as the character played by Darrow in Blake’s 7.

The last time there has been a development on the long mooted Blake’s 7 remake it was reported that Microsoft had taken over the project.
Microsoft has since however denied any such involvement and there is no indication if or when the project would be seeing the light of day.

Clive James – Doctor Who – Blake’s 7:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvzHRSJnrns

At a guess this was sometime in the 1990s as Clive James has a look back on both Doctor Who and Blake’s 7.
Amusing on hearing some of the Who girls reprising their screams for James and good appearances from a couple of Blake’s 7 women including the presence of Jacqueline Pearce when a scene of her as Servalan requesting that a degrading act that was done to her be done again!
