Survivors: Win the TV Show Remake on DVD!

SurvivorsA remake of the original Survivors series, this TV show debuted in November 2008. It was created by BAFTA Award-winner Adrian Hodges (Primeval) and was inspired by the original Terry Nation novel.

This version of Survivors is set in the present day and focuses on a group of people who have survived viral pandemic known as the Eurpoean Flu. With the rest of the world’s population dead, these individuals must learn to survive and work together without the structure and security of an organized society and law and order.

Performers in this post-apocalyptic series include Julie Graham, Phillip Rhys, Zoe Tapper, Shaun Dingwall, Paterson Joseph, Freema Agyeman, Chahak Patel, Nikki Amuka-bird and Max Beesley.

The last episode of Survivors aired in February and it was subsequently announced that the series was cancelled, leaving the TV show with a cliffhanger ending.

    Just watched the free preview for this series on iTunes; looks really nice. It’d be nice to win the set. 😀

    I hate it when shows end like this, I keep wishing they would always make an ending show in case they get cancelled. But I can imagine Tom going there, killing everyone at the base and ending it there.

    Such a shame this was canceled. I guess we’ll never find out what happens to poor old Tom on the airplane! I would love to have a copy of the complete series DVD and it actually wouldn’t be for me, but for my mother. This was the first British show that I was ever able to get her to watch and enjoy and I will really miss discussing the latest episode with her every week on the phone.

    Really liked the positive message this series tried to convey – Abby’s character was frequently speaking about people sticking together and cooperating in order to survive – something relevant to our modern lives and the dilemmas we all face as citizens in the global 21st Century – especially as oil laps at our Gulf beaches and the swine flu is a recent memory and could come back at any time, and we are starting to see signs of social breakdown in the Tea Party and other anti-social “me-first” movements. Too bad the series was canceled. I will have to find the original series and watch that one.
