Reading an interview with Russell T Davies I found this quote: ‘[H]e admits to a touch of envy that someone else – Adrian Hodges, who wrote ITV’s Primeval – is bringing Terry Nation’s apocalyptic Seventies series Survivors back to our screens.’

What an exciting thought! I loved this series when I was a child, especially the first season when a global pandemic decimated the population and reduced civilization back to communal barbarism. It played late at night and we were allowed to stay up and watch it. I must see if I can find a feed for it.
