Big Finish Update

The most recent edition of Big Finish’s Vortex Magazine, #69, reveals that Devil’s Advocate, the fifth story in the Series 2 of the Blake’s 7 Classic Audio Adventures will be focussed on Steven Pacey’s character, Tarrant.

Steven Pacey takes centre stage in Devil’s Advocate, by Steve Lyons. “This is very much a Tarrant-based story,” says Cav, “dealing with what he was doing before Blake’s 7, when he just pops up after the war. He’s never really been given a backstory – the majority of the other characters are, but not him. We know he’s been a good Federation officer, which I think is fun to play with. He’s not always trustworthy, but seems to be quite a good man, with principles.
“It’s the usual thing, to think of every Federation officer as a scheming villain, but Tarrant is the opposite of that. We start to develop his backstory, and will return to it at some point. We learn of his links to the Federation hierarchy, with a returning voice that the Big Finish Blake’s 7 fans may very well recognise…”
