I love radio plays. Has great sound effects and it's like a movie for your mind. This would be good for anyone who likes end of the world or survival books. The writing was poor. I didn't care for the characters and in fact I found them annoying and I tried hard not to turn it off. The story was dragged out and the script kept repeating over and over. I found when characters talked to them self it was unconvincing and forced and fake.
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.

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!

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
