* The Doctor does have a habit of bringing entire tyrannical civilisations tumbling down when he runs into them, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E5TheRobotsOfDeath and he's been in the general area before]]. It would make for an interesting dramatic difference between the scale of the two series, too. The crew of the ''Liberator'' fight the Federation for years and are nearly all killed... because they're stuck in a story years ''before'' the Doctor shows up.

(Going by the Creator/ChrisBoucher connection, I'd say it ought to be the Fourth Doctor and Leela, too). It would make for an interesting dramatic difference between the scale of the two series, too.

Expanded universe material for Blake's 7 has suggested that it takes place in the same universe as Doctor Who, such as the appearance of a minor guest character in the novel Corpse Marker, written by Chris Boucher himself. However this contradicts some of the show's lore as the The Ark in Space shows that humanity has already discovered teleportation despite the Liberator being the first example of it in the Blake's Seven universe which would seem to contradict Who. However, as Steven Moffat would say time can be rewritten. One huge difference that the Doctor did cause in the Waters of Mars is that now there are two survivors humanity knows that it was alien life forms that were responsible for the destruction of the Mars base. This will likely lead to a much more cautious and likely hostile reaction to any future forms of alien life they may encounter.

[[WMG: Soolin's sister survived the massacre of their family, and was turned into a mutoid.]]
This is a very old fan theory, which springs from Glynis Barber playing one of Travis' mutoids in "Project Avalon".

* Although colonization from Earth populated many planets, there are several cases where human-looking populations clearly were present on their homeworlds for more than 300 years, particularly primitive populations who would probably need time to build up their own cultures after botched colonization attempts that left them without technology, or wars that achieved the same result. Blake's 7 has a major case of AmbiguouslyHuman when it comes to the planet of the week. I can buy the Helots as humans as they're specifically said to have been an Earth colony, as was the planet with the "Hiteks" and the "Primitives." However Keezarn and several other planets like the one from "Duel" clearly had CivilizationS of either parallel-evolved humans or aliens that closely resembled humans without any distinguishing marks, thousands of years before the series. I think it's more reasonable to assume that B7 takes place farther in the future than in traditionally accepted by fans. The construction of Terminal and the remarkable feat of moving it to another star system suggests power the Federation never demonstrates otherwise (THOUGH it's not clear if the Federation was responsible). Accelerated evolution being the purpose of the planet, it's hard to infer its actual age by loooking at the wildlife there.
