I know. Thrilling and terrifying at the same time.

Usually SyFy are rubbish, but they're getting better at their own shows. While I really can't imagine anyone playing Avon and Villa (or the computers), the original series is severely limited by its utter lack of budget. If they can keep the distopia and themes and dialogue but update the special effects, in a Galactica style reboot, that could be great.

Its really a crime that the BBC couldn't / didn't do it. No serious sci fi from them in years.  :(

If they can do a galactica like thing that retains the dystopian brutality then I'll be a very happy bunny

As time & successive episodes of Dr Who have come and gone I am very glad the BBC didn't redo it

Can you imagine The Liberator in the hands of Russell T Davis

I know what you mean. Only glimmer of hope was if the Spooks people did it.

That would be distopian.
