The fourth and final season of Blake's 7 known as Series D was broadcast in 1981 from September through to December. This was much later than the previous three seasons which were broadcast earlier in the year. It consisted of 13 episodes.

OverviewEdit

Series D was a major change to the show's setting, following the destruction of the Liberator in Series C's Terminal the crew gain a new ship – Scorpio which first appears in Rescue. Cally also dies in the first episode – offscreen, although her voice is heard. A new character; Soolin is introduced in the first episode, she joins the crew in the following episode Power.

None of the episodes of Series D were written by Terry Nation. Chris Boucher remained in the role of script editor.

Servalan returns in this season as Commissioner Sleer, having reivented herself and her position in the new Federation, which following the aftermath of the galactic war in Series C is rebuilding its empire.

Every episode of this series is a single word long.

The final episode of this season Blake remains one of the bleakest endings to a television series. With the return of Roj Blake it ends with all of the cast appearing to die at the hands of the Federation or Avon.
