Blake’s 7 (sometimes styled Blakes7) is a British science fiction television series created by Terry Nation.

The narrative of the show concerns the exploits of political dissident Roj Blake. Blake commands a small group of rebels against the forces of the totalitarian Terran Federation that rules the Earth and many colonised planets.

Blake’s 7 was popular from its first broadcast, watched by approximately 10 million in the UK and shown in many other countries. The response of the critics was mixed with some praising its dystopian themes, ambiguous morality and pessimistic tones, but others calling it awful, Clive James included.
