OUT NOW! The Worlds of Blake's 7: Bayban Ascending
My mother… Oh yes, I had a mother. Wonderful woman. Truly evil person. She had a saying. “Babe,” she used to say – she called me Babe. “Babe,” she used to say. “Treat every hour as though it’s your last.”
Big Finish have today released their latest title in their Worlds of Blake's 7 range. Written by Nigel Fairs and read by Colin Baker, the full length audio novel Bayban Ascending delves into the villain's sordid past and reveals his journey to a life of crime.
Colin Baker said: “Back in the early 1980s, Bayban leapt off the page invitingly. He was over the top and knew what he wanted and damn well got it! It was a lovely character to play.
“This is a genius beginning to the whole Bayban story. The journey has been written so brilliantly by Nigel Fairs – we hear the transmogrification of a young, careful, trouble-avoiding, low-level worker to become the scourge of the universe..."
Bayban Ascending is available on Download exclusively from the Big Finish website here.
The full range of Blake's 7 audio dramas and novels from Big Finish can be found here: B7 from BF.
