New battles for the survivors of the ‘Death’ pandemic start today.
Survivors is based on an original concept and characters from the 1975 television series by Terry Nation (creator of the Daleks and Blake’s 7). The show ran for three seasons and was known to be as thought-provoking and character-driven as it was terrifying.
The adventures continue on audio from Big Finish, and we are lucky to have actors Carolyn Seymour, Ian McCulloch and Lucy Fleming reprising their TV roles.
The four new episodes of Survivors Series Seven are available now.
