So, my wonderful boyfriend has done some slick coding that lets us extract all of the dialogue for any given character in a Blake's 7 transcript (or compilation of transcripts). I've used this code to create word clouds (a vice of mine) for Blake's series 1 & 2 dialogue, Avon's series 1 & 2 dialogue, and all of Avon's dialogue in the entire show. I'm embedding the word clouds so that you all can have a look. It's very easy to generate these, so if anyone has a request for a character (Zen? Orac? Dayna? Jenna?), feel free to ask away. One thing I notice is that obviously Avon is very obsessed with Blake, and vice versa, but Blake is clearly the leader and speaks accordingly. Where Avon hardly uses anyone's name but Blake's, Blake uses everyone's name quite frequently (though Gan less than the others). Since I've done Avon's dialogue across all of the series, it's hard to compare their leadership styles based on these. I could make a 3&4 Avon wordle, though, if that interests people. Anyway, speculations, observations and requests welcome!
