dream cast: hypothetical new ‘Blake’s 7’ series

It’s still Thursday for another couple of hours where I am, so it’s time to remake an 80s classic TV show or movie with an all-new cast. This week: Blake’s 7, the 1978-1981 BBC science fiction show. A revival has been rumored for years, but as right now, there’s nothing definite in the pipeline. (Don’t miss the BBC’s cult-TV subsite devoted to the show.)

(If you have a suggestion for an 80s TV show or movie we should play with, feel free to email me.)
The original cast included:

Roj Blake: Gareth Thomas
Kerr Avon: Paul Darrow
Jenna Stannis: Sally Knyvette
Vila Restal: Michael Keating
Cally: Jan Chappell
Olag Ga: David Jackson
Del Tarrant: Steven Pacey
Dayna Mellanby: Josette Simon
Soolin: Glynis Barber
Orac: Peter Tuddenham
Servalan: Jacqueline Pearce
Space Commander Travis: Brian Croucher/Stephen Greif

My dream cast for an update:

Roj Blake: Paul McGann
Kerr Avon: Christopher Eccleston
Jenna Stannis: Kate Winslet
Vila Restal: John Simm
Cally: Cate Blanchett
Olag Gan: Philip Glenister
Del Tarrant: David Tennant
Dayna Mellanby: Michelle Rodriguez
Soolin: Billie Piper
Orac: Stephen Fry
Servalan: Helen Mirren
Space Commander Travis: Ralph Fiennes

Who would you cast? Have fun!
