For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
You can’t keep a good baddie down. Three memorable opponents from the original TV series of Blake’s 7 get a second chance to wreak havoc in a brand-new box set of full-cast audio drama from Big Finish Productions.
In Heroes & Villains, due for release in April 2022, resistance rebels Jenna and Cally return by popular demand to The Worlds of Blake’s 7. Sally Knyvette and Jan Chappell star in three new adventures that pit them against a number of the notorious rogues and criminals we've encountered before.
Matthew Gravelle (The Widow, Broadchurch) leads the guest cast as the charming but dangerous Dorian (previously seen meeting his end in the TV episode, Rescue). Tania Rodrigues (Coronation Street) plays Mandala, Queen of the untrustworthy Amagons, the pirates who threatened the Liberator in Bounty. And Nigel Betts (Boy Meets Girl, Outlander) voices Shrinker, the infamous Federation interrogator and torturer who was a menacing presence in the classic Rumours of Death. The Worlds of Blake’s 7 – Heroes & Villains is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition CD box set (+ download for just £19.99) or digital download only (for just £16.99), exclusively here.
Unscrupulous bounty hunter. Cunning rogue trader. Sadistic interrogator. They’re adversaries to avoid, but now they’ve found Jenna Stannis and Cally.
The Amagons deceive enemies and allies alike. Dorian’s glamour disguises his danger. And there’s no hiding Shrinker’s brutal intentions. These villains will have no mercy when they encounter our heroes.
The three exciting stories in this box set are as follows:
The Amagon Queen by Trevor Baxendale
Deal with Dorian by Mark B Oliver
Everyone Talks to Shrinker by Andrew Smith Script editor and producer Peter Anghelides said: “The reaction to Cally and Jenna’s adventure together in The Clone Masters was great — from listeners and also Jan Chappell and Sally Knyvette! We decided to do three new adventures for them together, foregrounding the characters in a way that perhaps the TV series didn’t always manage to do
“As it’s The Worlds of Blake’s 7, we also wanted to do a further exploration of some opponents who we wish had got more screen time on the telly. Our adventures put Jenna and Cally together with characters and scenarios in each story that are echoed and reflected through all three.” The Worlds of Blake’s 7 – Heroes & Villains is now available to pre-order at £19.99 (collector’s edition CD + download) or £16.99 (download only) exclusively from the Big Finish website. All the above prices include the special pre-order discount and are subject to change after general release.
