Announcing The Worlds of Blake’s 7

Filed under: Audios,Blake's 7,Worlds of Blake's 7 — Peter A @ 4:46 pm

Big Finish announced today some work I’ve been doing for them. I’ve been script editor on three boxsets in The Worlds of Blake’s 7 series of full-cast audios. The producer is David Richardson. You can read the official announcement here.

All three box sets can be preordered now, along with three tie-in audio novels.



The Clone Masters

Featuring the enigmatic race from Season B episode Weapon. What are the unrevealed secrets and motivations of the Clone Masters, who on TV we met briefly in that TV episode and later heard about their untimely demise in the Season C episode Children of Auron.

The cast includes Jan Chappell as Cally, Sally Knyvette as Jenna, and both Travises! What a treat it was to hear Stephen Greif and Brian Croucher reprising the role in studio.

The script writing credits and other story details for the three episodes are yet to be announced, so keep an eye out for further announcements about that. Lisa Bowerman is the director. The box set is available in September.

Bayban the Butcher

How did Bayban become the Butcher that the Liberator crew encountered in his startling original appearance in City at the Edge of the World, the Season C episode? And how could he possibly have survived the end of that story?

It’s a glorious return to Blake’s 7 for Colin Baker, who clearly relished returning to the role in his studio performance.

The author and director credits for each story are yet to be announced. The box set is available in December.

The Terra Nostra

We know from Season B’s episode Shadow that the villainous Terra Nostra are involved in whatever is dirty, degrading, and cruel on every civilised world. So in this box set, we explore what further influence they have in the Blake’s 7 galaxy.

Writing and directing credits are yet to be announced, as is any information about cast members for these three audios. More news on that later in the year, with the box set being made available in January 2022.

One thing you’ll notice is that Michael Keating is mentioned in the announcement as a cast member… but we haven’t yet revealed where he appears in the run of stories.

So watch out for more information on these nine brand new full-cast audios during the year. There are surprises in store!

It’s been a joy to work with the team on these episodes, and I can’t wait for you to find out more about the wonderful writers, amazing cast, and thrilling stories.
