Big Finish (@bigfinish) the company best known for the Doctor Who audio dramas has announced the second book in the new series of original Blake's 7 novels.

Archangel, written by Scott Harrison (@scottvharrison) is set between the TV stories Trial and Killer and the rebels trying to move on from the horrific death of crew-member Olag Gan.

Scott is thrilled to be part of this exciting new range as he has watched Blake's 7 all his life. “I hope to make the novel as breathtakingly exciting as each of those 52 TV episodes have been for me over the past 30-plus years.” he says. “To be invited by Big Finish to be a part of this range, particularly at its outset, is surely every writer’s dream, not to mention a huge honour.”

The story starts when an old friend of Blake’s – believed to have been murdered five years earlier by the Federation – is discovered alive in a labour camp on Sigma Minor, the rebels decide to mount a daring rescue attempt. But the talented cybernetic engineer Blake once knew is a shadow of his former self. His memory has been wiped, his family are prisoners of the Federation, and his name is inextricably linked to a sinister project known only by a codename: Archangel.

Archangel is available for pre-order now on the Big Finish website along with The Forgotten by Mark Wright and Cavan Scott, the first book in Big Finish's Blake's 7 novel range.
