BLAKE’S 7 – THE CLONE MASTERS

Big Finish have revealed the cover art, cast and storylines for the forthcoming full cast audio drama featuring the Clone Masters. Returning to their roles, this three episode box set stars Jan Chappell, Sally Knyvette, Stephen Greif and Brian Croucher in three episodes written by Tim Foley, produced by David Richardson, and directed by Lisa Bowerman with Peter Anghelides as script editor.

This box set is also released alongside The Rule of Death, a full-length audiobook written by Trevor Baxendale.

The dark history of the Clone Masters holds many mysteries. Cally and Jenna discover some are lost in time, long before the Federation - while other secrets were buried by the Clone Masters themselves before they retreated to their home world.  
Gatekeepers or conspirators, pragmatists or prophets, defenders or destroyers... At the height of their powers, how will the Clone Masters respond when Travis plans to weaponise them? 


1. Separation 
An untrustworthy old colleague tempts Jenna away from the Liberator to a secluded forest world, pursuing a mystery that involves Cally’s family. Will Jenna and Cally realise the true danger they face from the Clone Masters before night draws in? 
 
2. The Rule of Life 
When Space Commander Travis makes fresh demands of the Clone Masters, he is surprised by two familiar figures. One is an Auron outcast. The other is the man he once was – and could be again. 

3. The Conclave
The Queen of the Clone Masters is dead, and the search for her successor draws guests from across the galaxy. Looking for something else on their visit are Cally and Travis. Between them, they could unwittingly tear down the Clone Masters’ world forever. 

Producer David Richardson said: “The arrival of the Clone Masters was a turning point in the TV run of Blake’s 7. I remember the impact they made on me as a 15-year-old. It seemed as though all cards were off the table – that this series I loved could now tell any kind of story. The harder edges were being softened as the series took its first steps into very imaginative science fantasy.  
“I was always disappointed that the producers never brought the Clone Masters back, but now I’m producing Blake’s 7 on audio and I can! So here is the kind of Clone Masters sequel I always wanted to watch. It’s taken 42 years – but what’s that to a people with such power?” 
 
Script editor Peter Anghelides added: “Tim Foley has written all three of these. I love how each is so distinctive in theme and mood. He's picked up on elements from the Clone Masters' appearance in the TV series, then combined and expanded them into imaginative new elements. We've only had a glimpse of their home world previously, so wait until you experience it at its pinnacle. Though at a pinnacle, there's only one direction of travel.  
“As we put together the storylines, I realised we could plausibly bring together the two Travises within the continuity of Blake's 7. I don’t think Tim could believe his luck, and Stephen Greif and Brian Croucher relished the chance. I can't wait to see how listeners respond to their scenes together.  
“Tim's stories also link together beautifully as a trilogy. Plus, there are things set in motion that will play out in future box sets, with a new psychostrategist character called Hinton, brought to life by the wonderful Abigail Thaw.” 

The Clone Masters and the tie-in audio novel The Rule of Death by Trevor Baxendale will be released in September 2021, and are now available to pre-order from Big Finish here: Clone Masters and The Rule of Death.

The full range of Blake's 7 audio dramas and original novels can be found here: Blake's 7 from Big Finish and are reviewed on Horizon here: Horizon Reviews.
