It turns out that the Blake’s 7 revival, which had promised Paul Darrow’s return to the role of Avon (before Darrow dropped out and the television project was aborted), is taking the audio route: perhaps taking a cue from Big Finish’s work with Doctor Who. Alas, there will be new actors playing Blake and Avon (played respectively by Colin Salmon and Derek Riddell). But several writers involved with Doctor Who (including Marc Platt and Ben Aaronovitch) have penned scripts.
