For one week only, download the complete first episode of Big Finish’s Blake’s 7, the reimagined version of the 1970s BBC TV sci-fi series originally produced by B7 Media in 2008 – for free!
Blake’s 7: Rebel is written by Ben Aaronovitch (Battlefield) and features Derek Riddell, Colin Salmon, and Daniela Nardini as Blake, Avon, and Servalan respectively.
Here’s the synopsis:
In the third century of the second calendar, the galactic Federation, once a beacon of democracy and peace, has become a corrupt tyranny. Freedom and Justice are things of the past.
Roj Blake stood up for ordinary people. When the establishment tried intimidation, he laughed in their faces; when they tried to crush him, he fought back. They tried to brainwash him into obedience, but he broke their conditioning. Finally, they framed him for crimes he didn’t commit and sentenced him to permanent exile on the notorious prison planet of Cygnus Alpha.
The Federation thinks it has seen the last of Roj Blake… The Federation will wish it had.
