(temporary cover art pictured)

In The Worlds of Blake’s 7: Tarrant, he returns to the role he first played from 1980 to 1981 in the original Blake’s 7 TV series. The three full-cast stories focus on the fearless Del Tarrant across various stages of his life, from his early days as a Federation pilot to his time as a member of the Liberator crew.

For the third episode, Steven is joined by Yasmin Bannerman as Dayna Mellanby, the weapons expert originally played on TV by Josette Simon, and Alistair Lock as sophisticated supercomputer Orac, originally voiced by Peter Tuddenham.

Soldier, Federation Space Commander, smuggler, freedom fighter. Del Tarrant has challenged convention throughout his many careers in a hostile galaxy.
These are the stories of his choices and challenges, his friends and family and foes, on an unpredictable journey to the Liberator and beyond.

The Worlds of Blake’s 7: Tarrant is now available to pre-order as a collector’s edition 3-disc CD box set (+ download for just £22.99) or as a digital download only (for just £18.99), exclusively from www.bigfinish.com. Please note: the collector’s edition CD box set is strictly limited to 1,000 copies and will not be repressed.

Prices above include the special pre-order discount and are subject to change after general release.
