LONDON, May 29, 2009: UK-based independent production company, B7 Productions, has announced the next EARLY YEARS audio drama, which also marks the return of JAN CHAPPELL to the role of Cally.
THE EARLY YEARS are a prequel series of stories that explore the origins of key BLAKE’S 7 characters prior to them meeting rebel leader, Roj Blake. The newest prequel story centres on the alien telepath Cally and her clone sisterhood. The two thirty-minute adventures ‘Blood & Earth’ written by Ben Aaronovitch and ‘Flag & Flame’ written by Marc Platt also mark the return of JAN CHAPPELL (known for her portrayal of Cally in the first three series of the original BLAKE’S 7 series) as the mysterious AUNTY – a woman who claims to have been the second Cally ever to be born on Auron. SUSANNAH DOYLE (Drop the Dead Donkey), JULIAN WADHAM (Outpost) and MICHAEL COCHRANE (Sharpe) also star.
