Brian Croucher

  1. Gareth Thomas, Blake’s 7, TV, 1978-1981.       Interviewed for Roj Blake, head of what Terry Nation (also the creator of Doctor Who’s Daleks) pitched as The Dirty Dozen In Space… Instead, he was Travis for six episodes. His Blakian rivals included Tom Adams. Alun Armstrong, Warren Clarke, Maurice Colbourne, Paul Darrow (who became Avon), Peter Egan, Martin Jarvis, Christian Roberts and Donald Sumpter. Welshman Thomas quit after 28 of the 52 chapters when the BBC wouldn’t let him direct. He never did direct for TV – never watched himself on the box, either.
  2. Sidney Keen, Lifeforce, 1984.
