Publisher's Summary

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....

1.1: 'Revelation' by Matt Fitton. When people begin to die of a new strain of a flu virus, newspaper journalists Helen Wiseman and Daniel Connor investigate. They uncover a terrifying story - but will anyone ever get to read it?

1.2: 'Exodus' by Jonathan Morris. Billions of people have died across the globe. Cities are rife with secondary diseases, and the survivors attempt to make their way out of London.

1.3: 'Judges' by Andrew Smith. After a storm wipes out much of their community's supplies, Greg and Jenny go in search of new provisions - much to Abby's disapproval.

1.4: 'Esther' by John Dorney. Greg, Jenny and their new friends are trapped. Will they ever make it out alive?

Note: Survivors contains adult material and is not suitable for younger listeners.

    Looking for the next best horror, ghost, paranormal, apocalyptic book out there. Especially if it has a full cast.

    "Wonderfully entertaining...."

    I have become a huge fan of full cast audio productions. So much that now when I look for my next listen, I try to find one with at least multiple narrators if not a full cast. The Survivors series was a great addition to my widening library. Although some of the situations were a bit far fetched, just listening to the production itself made it worthwhile. The voice acting was above par and the added music and sound effects brought it even more to life. I will definitely be continuing the series.

    "A eye opener!"
    Would you listen to Survivors Series 01 again? Why?

    As a kid I watched the 1st Series of Survivors on 70's TV. I only caught up with series 2/3 on DVD in 2016. But now I wish I never bothered. It's actually Big Finish who belatedly carry on Terry Nation's vision. I have series 1 to 5 on CD. But I re-bought Series 1 & 2 of these Big Finish audio's to put on my Kindle. Good writing and production deserve to be rewarded to continue. That's how good, telling and impact memorable this series is to listen too again!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The montage of characters are all great. All having a history to impact into later recordings. Stick with it.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    You can't pick one scene when there's a great arc depicting all the Horrors and Honourable Highs of Human Nature.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Morals and Ethics should always Survive!


    Any additional comments?

    Terry Nation would have been Proud. Had this remained the tone of the TV series, he would never have left!

    "Jenny, Abby and Greg return"

    As a huge fan of the 70's TV series I was pleased to find this new audiobook series. It's great to hear from Jenny, Abby and Greg. A believable story that ties nicely into the original. As mentioned in at least one review I did have issues hearing certain parts of the audio whilst driving and had to turn the volume up.
    Overall I'm more than happy with the story and performance

    "excellent."

    I remember well the original TV version. Gave up on the remake, but this is excellent Great cast and performance. Dark and a chilling reminder of how fragile our take on civilisation as we know it is.

    "Gritty drama, quality drama.."

    Hard to listen to at times but worth sticking with! Shows how fragile our society is, when things start to happen that we can't control or do anything about! Hopefully we won't have anything like this to deal with ; but they say we are always one day away.....

    "Brilliant cast, terrible sound engineering"

    An interesting concept & great cast, ruined by the worst sound engineering I've ever heard in an audiobook.

    Not just some parts being too quiet (some of this was obviously a directorial choice to show people being further away or muffled) but voices clearly not being picked up properly when recorded so no matter how hard you turned it up the words weren't clearly audible.

    It's almost like they used really old school microphones that would only record when the actor's mouth was directly in front of them so the sound kept dropping out.

    Very disappointing as this was otherwise and interesting production.

    Another issue was the choice to use original cast actors in the same roles. A nice idea but rather confusing when you realise a character who sounds like they're in their 50/60s is actually meant to be in their 20/30s.

    Also worth bearing in mind is that the last 30 minutes or so of the book is interviews with the cast. They are interesting but it means the book is even shorter than it seems.

    If you have an audible account & can get the book for £6 or so it's reasonable but please don't even consider paying the £40 (!!!) they want for it. I don't see ago they could justify that for a 4 hour book even if everything else were perfect!

    "Could have been much more"

    Overall a medium performance.
    The start of the book was very promising but the predictable and mediocre story was a let down after about 1/3 into the book.
    Potential buyers should also be aware that the last 35 min is a sort of making off.
    The acting ranges from very good to poor. of course it does not help if the actors get stupid lines to read wich does not happen that often but when it does it drags a lot of the story down with it.
    With a little more effort and a better,gripping story ( where you would care what happens with the characters) this could have been great. As it stands, it is mediocre at best.

    "Personally Disappointed"
    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    Unfortunately I made the error of purchasing this book, but instead I have at best what can be called a radio play.
    This combined with the dated storyline has made it a 1 * experience for me as an individual


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    No


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    None
