Released today is the sixth series of Terry Nation’s Survivors!
Featuring a superb cast, including Carolyn Seymour, Ian McCulloch, Lucy Fleming and Helen Goldwyn, Survivors Series 6 is released today, exclusively on the Big Finish site.
Four brand new battles await the living, as they try to rebuild society after ‘The Death’. These stories are written by Christopher Hatherall, Simon Clark, Ian Potter and Andrew Smith, and directed by Ken Bentley.
6.1 Beating the Bounds by Ian Potter
Abby Grant’s search for her son has taken her all across Britain and back. Following every possible lead, she finds herself on long-abandoned roads to forgotten villages. But now, two years after the first Death, such communities still wish to protect themselves. And they do not take kindly to strangers.
6.2 The Trapping Pit by Christopher Hatherall
On a routine trading mission from Whitecross to Evelyn Piper’s Foundation, Jenny Richards and community doctor Ruth Anderson are ambushed by desperate scavengers. When the tables turn, an escape attempt becomes a struggle for survival. With a young man’s life hanging in the balance, Ruth’s skills are put to the ultimate test.
6.3 Revenge of Heaven by Simon Clark
Greg Preston has forged links with survivors in Norway to start rebuilding society. He’s ready to return home to his family… until an unexpected visitor drags him into a race across the Scandinavian snows.
Hope for the future lies with a kidnapped scientist, and some will go to any lengths to control that hope.
6.4 Lockup by Andrew Smith
As her journey continues, Abby encounters a secure and well-ordered community, based inside a prison complex, calling itself ‘Peacetown’.
But the settlement is not as idyllic as its name suggests, and the lockup harbours secrets. Among them, a prisoner. Someone Abby knows of old... A man called Greg Preston.
