* ActingForTwo: In ""[Recap/BlakesSevenS3E7ChildrenOfAuron ChildrenOfAuron]]", Jan Chappell plays both Cally and her twin sister Zelda, which makes sense because they're both clones of a single, unnamed parent. She also plays an alien being that bases her appearance on Cally's in "Sarcophagus". Tarrant also had a lookalike brother (with a curly wig) in "[[Recap/BlakesSevenS3E12DeathWatch Death-Watch]]".

** Jacqueline Pearce was unhappy with the final season, claiming that it ran out of steam and ideas. That said, she named "Sand" from that season as her favourite episode.
** When it comes to individual episodes, Michael Keating's least favourite was "Ultraworld" and Stephen Pacey allegedly disliked "Assassin" because it made Tarrant look like a gullible idiot.

** The first proposal for the series' conclusion, titled Attack, involved Blake returning to lead an assault on the Federation on Earth, finally defeating them. This idea was rejected by producer Vere Lorrimer, who thought it "...would be like five men trying to defeat the German army".

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Notably, the fate of [[spoiler: the clone of Blake from "Weapon"]] is never revealed. Some people believe [[spoiler: that's why Servalan seemed so certain Blake was dead - she may have encountered the clone again. Blake in the finale notably can't be the clone, because he was with Jenna.]]



* YouLookFamiliar: Glynis Barber also had a tiny role as a Mutoid in the first-season episode "Project Avalon", before getting the regular role of Soolin in the fourth season.

Added DiffLines:

* CastingGag: Possibly unintentional, but Carrie Dobro played Dureena in ''Series/{{Crusade}}'', who was practically a CompositeCharacter of Cally and Vila. In ''A Rebellion Reborn'', she ended up in the series Dureena's inspirations came from... playing Jenna!

* WrittenByCastMember: Paul Darrow wrote an official spin-off novel, ''Avon: A Terrible Aspect'', which as the title suggests concentrated on his character, and explains Avon's early life and the events that led to him being imprisoned for internet fraud.

** Jacqueline Pearce. Servalan is an utterly cold, calculating (and scene-stealing) bitch. Pearce herself is a rather charming and good-humoured sort. When she appeared on ''[[ Series/{{Pointless}} Pointless Celebrities]]'' with Michael Keating, for instance, she was practically {{Adorkable}}.
