Zoe Tapper joins the battle for survival in 2016, with Big Finish's fourth box-set of post-apocalyptic stories.
Zoe, who starred as Anya Raczynski in the 2008 BBC reboot of Survivors and has also appeared in Demons, Mr Selfridge and The Martian Chronicles, will portray government official Evelyn Piper - who listeners will first encounter in a flashback to the beginnings of the plague that decimated the globe.
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…
Based on Terry Nation's cult post-apocalyptic drama, Survivors: Series 4 presents a quartet of new stories from the world of the original television programme.
After the harrowing events of Survivors: Series 3, the new series finds Greg (Ian McCulloch) and Jenny (Lucy Fleming) out on the road, reaching out to other survivors on behalf of the Whitecross Community. Their journey will bring them back into contact with Jackie (Louise Jameson) and Molly (Fiona Sheehan) – and a new community headed by Theo, an inspirational leader played by Ramon Tikaram (UNIT: The New Series, The Prisoner, Happy Valley).
'I’m delighted that the first three series met with such acclaim,’ says producer David Richardson, 'and I’m very excited by the new story lines that script editor Matt Fitton and his team of writers have been spinning. There are plenty of shocking twists and turns yet to come…'
