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: 'Dark Rain' by Ken Bentley. Introducing Tim Treloar as Russell, and Bernard Holley as Ridley. Months after the plague, storms batter the country. As Abby resumes the search for her son, Jackie and Daniel fight for their lives.

2: 'Mother's Courage by Louise Jameson. Introducing Fiona Sheehan as Molly. The search for Peter leads to Aberystwyth and a community of women who have cut themselves off from the outside world. But what appears to be a safe haven could be nothing of the sort.

3: 'The Hunted' by Ken Bentley. Introducing Tim Bentinck as Irvin Warner. Greg, Daniel and Russell need the help of survivalist Irvin Warner, who is hiding out in the Brecon Beacons. But predators are roaming in the barren countryside, too....

4: 'Savages' by Matt Fitton. Wounded, split apart and fighting for their lives, the survivors discover that survival isn't everything.

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

Directed by Ken Bentley.

Run time includes commentary

The acting is excellent and the story is engaging, but it’s not real clear what happened between the end of series 1 and the start of series 2. The last hour is a discussion amongst the cast and writers though. Not sure I would have purchased if I knew the run time was not all story. It also ends abruptly.

A great listen.

Totally enjoyed this, along with series one.
I was a fan of the original TV series, and it's fabulous to hear some original cast members, along with the wonderful Louise Jameson.
More please!

Felt cheated

Story itself was good, but the last 8 or9 chapters were about how the writers came to write the storyline the same was on survivors series1

truly faithful to the original

this is a well taken opportunity to expand season one. perhaps BF can widen the scope as we come into the original season two timeline, what happened to Abby? and other adventures away from white cross there is a lot of time that passes off screen in the original presentation. Thanks to the team for a fantastic addition to the survivor's story.

Disappointing

Not much of a storyline and not a very hopeful story. A lot of aggression and noise and not much else. I just wanted to turn it down or fast forward! Certainly not a shiny new world with a clean slate. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Crazy production

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The sound effects are far too loud... travelling in a car and having the volume set so you can hear the dialogue clearly, the special effects just about burst your eardrums. Big Finish seem to have this problem...subtlety isn’t in their repertoire

What did you like best about this story?

A continuation of a TV series I greatly enjoyed. I had no problem with the darker nature of the material itself.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

Narrators were excellent.

Did Survivors Series 02 inspire you to do anything?

Write a review in the hope that future series are better.

Dark disturbing quality Audio drama

Hard to listen to sometimes ! But had to finish to find out what became of the people we have come to care about. Deals with scenarios we don't really want to contemplate or admit could and has happened in human history ! Completely compelling quality drama
