For The Love Of StoriesBig Finish produce fantastic full-cast audio dramas for CD and download.
Story details are today revealed for the brand-new audio box set based on Terry Nation’s dystopian TV series, due for release in April 2023 from Big Finish Productions.
In three full-cast audio adventures, writer Ken Bentley explores the 20-year impact of the worldwide plague, known as the Death, which first hit in the classic 1970s BBC series.
Food shortages threaten the stability of the New Federal Government. Prime Minister Celia Tate clings to power and Robin Page – once a thorn in her side and now a minister – becomes involved in an uprising to depose her.
Once again, the world is changing and the best Abby and Jenny can hope for is to survive.
The three post-apocalyptic stories are as follows:
The Turning Part 1
Caught between an increasingly authoritarian Prime Minister and activists determined to bring down the New Federal Government, Jenny struggles to prevent the collapse of everything they’ve worked so hard to build.
The Turning Part 2
Answering her friend’s desperate call for help, Abby returns to find Cambridge in chaos, and Jenny is surrounded by danger and betrayal as a new regime desperately try to restore order.
Escaping Cambridge, Abby and Jenny save the life of an elderly man they find living alone in the woods and gratefully accept his offer of warmth and shelter. But as the cold and dark close in it’s not only the animals that come out at night...
NOTE: Survivors contains adult material and is not suitable for younger listeners.
Script Editor Matt Fitton said: “I was immensely proud to have worked on the Survivors audio series – re-introducing the world of Terry Nation’s TV series and taking the characters into new territory as they tried to rebuild their world. Those nine box sets gave us challenging stories, showing the best and worst of humanity. It's a delight to return with Ken Bentley to complete Abby and Jenny's journey decades after the nightmare began in New Dawn 3.
“I love how Andrew Smith re-established the world in New Dawn 1 and 2 with a nascent government, clinging to the vestiges of the old world, as infrastructure and civilisation hangs by a thread. Those stories delivered more shocks and drama and Ken and I are now relishing the chance to pull at those threads to see what happens next...”
Survivors: New Dawn 3 is now available to pre-order for just £19.99 (collector’s edition 3-disc CD box set + download) or £16.99 (download only).
All the above prices include the special pre-order discount and are subject to change after general release.
