You've found Father McKenzie. But are you really looking for Eleanor Rigby?

Nation-al reunification, or, alternative history

According to the IMDB, Gareth "Roj Blake" Thomas and Tom "Fourth Doctor" Baker:

"... always wanted to do a cross-over between Doctor Who and Blake's 7 but this was vetoed by producers of both series. Indeed, the invasion from Andromeda at the end of the second season was originally going to be [an] invasion by Doctor Who's Daleks, also created by Terry Nation."
Oh, what might have been. Two of the most awesome Late Seventies Curly Perms seen on TV, after that of Ron on Alexander Bunyip's Billabong, together on screen at last... Terry's children, returning home again for a Tom vs Thomas crossover...

The Daleks vs Avon would have been something worth seeing. They might have even declined to exterminate him as a mark of respect.

Damn, that would've been so cool. But then, cold-hearted psychopathic killers were already over-represented on "Blake's 7" by Servalan and Travis.

Avon was, of course, cold-hearted and amoral, but too self-interested to be psychopathic.
