Big Finish Heroes & Villains Set

Can someone please explain how they are able to include a play featuring Dorian in this set, when we have always been told that Season D material is off limits for contractual reasons?

Have they renegotiated their agreement to include Season D? Is this a harbinger of stories actually set in Season D?
Elegant, my friend. Simply elegant.

Some progress has been made, yes.

I think they are just using their existing agreement to use the characters under Chris Boucher's copyright. Sadly, it may not cover Soolin, Slave or Scorpio, who seem to cover under a different copyright, also involving the BBC.
Vote Og.

Dorian, Shrinker and the Amigans were all interesting but as much as possible I would prefer BF to use original actors rather than recasting. (A story with Dorian and Shrinker is welcome but I think I would have preferred a Liberator Chronicles style audiobook read by an original cast member so we could imagine the voices, faces and performances of Geoffrey Burridge and John Bryans, and indeed Marc Zuber if Tarvin features in the Amigan story). For full-cast adventures I would have preferred say the adventures of Del Grant, or Tarrant: from captain to mercenary, that sort of thing, with TC and SP. (One story that might be told is about when Tarrant met Bayban, watched City at the Edge of the World the other day and of course of Bayban, Tarrant says 'I've met him'.
"Time really is getting short, you know..."

Yes, perhaps it could be tied back to Tarrant's time on the Kairopan run. A heist attempt by Bayban?

Sadly all 3 original actors are no longer with us. I do believe that BF do try and approach all original actors that are still with us if possible
