Ask The Producer - Autumn 2014

Ask the Producer #1 Ė Autumn 2014

When Cavan Scott took over the reins as producer of Big Finish's B7 range, he invited Horizon members to submit questions and comments. Instead of posting individual answers on the forum, we arranged for these to be published as a feature on the website. Here are the first ten:

Q1. Are there any plans to allow open submissions again in the future? (Joe Dredd)
Not at the moment Joe, but never say never.

Q2. Is there any chance of a novel set during Season C? (Gauda Cheese)
I canít think why not. (Loving the name by the way, but now I want a plate of cheese!)

Q3. Are there any plans for a cross through storyline, ie a story or set of stories with a link running through them, the 1st part set in Season 1 then 2 and 3? (Inquisitor)
I think thatís a great idea. Always looking for new approaches.

Thanks also for all the requests for returning characters, Carnell, Bayban etc. Always good to have suggestions but thereís probably no answer I can give. In some cases there will be rights issues Ė we can't use everything that appeared in the series without further permission Ė and, of course, we may already have plans (insert ironic winking emoticon here!)

Q4. Chris Boucher. His understanding of the B7 universe is second to none. There is a Philip Hinchcliffe Presents box set for the Doctor Who range; could we possibly have something similar with Chris Boucher and Blake's 7? (wall1885, Trevor Travis)
I would very much like to work with Chris if at all possible.

Q5. Tanith Lee had a unique take on Blake's 7. Any chance of her being recruited to write for the Big Finish B7 range? (Trevor Travis, Space Chopper and others)
Again, I would very much like to work with Tanith.

Q6. Do you plan to do any full-cast audio dramas set after Blake, so as to answer the mystery of what happened, who died and who got stunned, etc? So far, only Paul Darrow's books from BF have addressed this timeline - I just wonder if the BF folks had other ideas, and would like to record them? (Space Chopper, Lentila)
This isn't something weíre looking at, Iím afraid. Thereís more fun to be had with the earlier years yet.

Q7. What are the chances of a Doctor Who/Blake's 7 crossover? I'd give a body part to have that happen. Even if it didn't feature the Doctor, an invasion of Daleks would be excellent.†(Blencathra, Gauda Cheese)
To be honest, I don't think so. Not only would it be a rights nightmare, I think both franchises work better on their own.

Q8. A piece that celebrates the actors themselves. We admire them, not just for the B7 characters that they portray so well, but for just being themselves too. One feature that frequently stands out at conventions etc. is the ability of the actors to make us all laugh. I know we've already got Blake's Junction 7, but that wasn't with the original cast. How about a one-off that lampoons B7 in a respectful way, but would be incredibly funny? (Clareblues)

Q9. Some kind of spoof in the vein of The 5(ish) Doctors would be superb. A B7 version of The Curse of Fatal Death? With all the 'timey wimey' stuff in Fatal Death, you could have in this one Avon going after a new unique crystal to add to his collection, Cally becoming possessed by the Liberator's toaster, while Vila drinks the wine reserves dry as Blake goes off on another moody sulk over Gan... (President Solvite, Brad, Space Chopper)
Iím not sure this is a direction Big Finish would like to take the range to be honest. Iíd rather stick to the original subject matter without producing spoofs. But that's not to say we won't see more comedy in the Blakeís 7 releases in future.

Q10. As a personal request please, please, please no stories featuring Og! (wall1885)
OK, just because you asked so nicely.

There is now a new thread for further questions and comments - post them here: Ask the Producer #2, and they will be sent to Cavan at the end of December
