RIP Jacqueline Pearce, 1943-2018

I read that the actress Jacqueline Pearce passed away this morning. Best known as the villain Servalan in the BBC’s Blake’s 7, she had guest starred in sixties adventure shows and was the unfortunate Reptile-woman in a terrific, silly Hammer film. She killed Sontarans in Doctor Who and was the criminal Miss Pendragon in Dark Season, an early writing credit for Russell T. Davies. Our condolences to her friends and family.

  1. Very sad news. She was obviously best known for Blake’s 7, but she had a long and varied career. I recollect years ago in high school seeing a video of her in a production of one of Shakespeare’s plays (I wish I could recall which one) and she gave a very sensitive performance.
