Publisher's Summary

It begins with just a few people falling ill. Another flu virus that spreads around the globe. And then the reports begin that people are dying....
When most of the world's population is wiped out, a handful of survivors are left to pick up the pieces. Cities become graveyards. Technology becomes largely obsolete. Mankind must start again....
1.1: 'Revelation' by Matt Fitton. When people begin to die of a new strain of a flu virus, newspaper journalists Helen Wiseman and Daniel Connor investigate. They uncover a terrifying story - but will anyone ever get to read it?
1.2: 'Exodus' by Jonathan Morris. Billions of people have died across the globe. Cities are rife with secondary diseases, and the survivors attempt to make their way out of London.
1.3: 'Judges' by Andrew Smith. After a storm wipes out much of their community's supplies, Greg and Jenny go in search of new provisions - much to Abby's disapproval.
1.4: 'Esther' by John Dorney. Greg, Jenny and their new friends are trapped. Will they ever make it out alive?

A eye opener!

Would you listen to Survivors Series 01 again? Why?

As a kid I watched the 1st Series of Survivors on 70's TV. I only caught up with series 2/3 on DVD in 2016. But now I wish I never bothered. It's actually Big Finish who belatedly carry on Terry Nation's vision. I have series 1 to 5 on CD. But I re-bought Series 1 & 2 of these Big Finish audio's to put on my Kindle. Good writing and production deserve to be rewarded to continue. That's how good, telling and impact memorable this series is to listen too again!


Who was your favorite character and why?

The montage of characters are all great. All having a history to impact into later recordings. Stick with it.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

You can't pick one scene when there's a great arc depicting all the Horrors and Honourable Highs of Human Nature.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Morals and Ethics should always Survive!


Any additional comments?

Terry Nation would have been Proud. Had this remained the tone of the TV series, he would never have left!

Jenny, Abby and Greg return

As a huge fan of the 70's TV series I was pleased to find this new audiobook series. It's great to hear from Jenny, Abby and Greg. A believable story that ties nicely into the original. As mentioned in at least one review I did have issues hearing certain parts of the audio whilst driving and had to turn the volume up.
Overall I'm more than happy with the story and performance
