We look ahead to June's next Survivors release:
Coming in June, Survivors - Series 6 is the next of Big Finish's listener-praised audio continuation of Terry Nation's 1970s BBC TV show:
"We’re trying something a little different this time," confirms producer David Richardson, "Each disc is a separate, self-contained story - and I think it’s working beautifully. Set during the third season of the TV show, it allows us to focus individually on our leads Abby (Carolyn Seymour), Greg (Ian McCulloch) and Jenny (Lucy Fleming). Separated geographically, they each face different challenges. But might their paths finally cross again?"
Of particular note in the forthcoming set to Survivors fans is a particular casting. As David explains: "I’ve wanted to work with Julie Graham for ages, and in Simon Clark’s Revenge of Heaven we had the perfect role for her - Katherine Tanner, an adventurer who helps Greg Preston on his mission in Norway. Needless to say, Julie was fantastic in the part, and it was lovely to sit and chat to her about playing Abby Grant in the re-imagined BBC TV series of Survivors. The show is clearly still very close to her heart."
Survivors Series 6 is released in June on Download for £20 and CD for £25 - both pre-release prices offering a £5 discount on the price when the set goes on general release later in the year. A CD order automatically unlocks digital access on release.
Check out the entire Survivors range, including the chance for pre-orders on Series 6 through to Series 9, and to catch up with the first five sets, as well as listening to Carolyn Seymour's evocative reading of Terry Nation's original novel. There's even a free episode - Series 1's Survivors - Revelation.
