Picking up where the terrific first series left off, the BBC’s new take on Survivors continues to hark back to Terry Nation’s original novel, yet nonetheless weaves in contemporary themes. It gets down to business fairly quickly too, dealing with the thread left over from the first series’ cliffhanger, before pressing ahead with the thrust of the show’s new run.

And Survivors’ second series makes some interesting choices. It’s more interested this time in dealing with the ramifications of the virus that devastated the planet in the first place, and it’s happy to up the action ante, too. But it’s the life that the survivors face that now is taking centre stage, as well as digging into the story behind the aforementioned virus itself. As such, we get to see the worst and best of human nature reflected in the collection of characters here, and they get to be put in tenser situations as a result.

It’s an intelligent expansion of the original concept that we find in Survivors series 2, and an enriching of the drama as a result. It still has its problems, with not all characters convincing for instance, but this is still another fine science fiction show from the BBC, and one whose promise continues into its second run. --Jon Foster

Product Description

Imagine being the only survivor of a disease that kills every member of your family, that kills lovers, friends, nearly everyone you've ever met. You are among the lonely few to live and now you must start again in a strange new world where everything that was once safe and familiar is now strange and dangerous. Returning for this high octane second series alongside Abby are Greg, a loner, hiding the pain of his past; Anya, a doctor who has seen too much; Al, a playboy who becomes surrogate father to young and headstrong Najid; Sarah, a hedonist used to getting her own way and Tom Price handsome, dangerous and a high security prisoner before the virus hit. As the series unfolds and the tension mounts, the threat of danger, and violence is eternally present, and the group is forced time and again to ask themselves: are they in it together, or is it each man or himself?

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertainment as it's meant to be !! 23 Feb 2010
Survivors for me is as it should be thoroughly entertaining....I do wish people would stop comparing it to the original series.
If the original was so good then fine leave it at that...This is todays version of the same story.
It really does wind me up when a series gets pulled to pieces like this one has..It's is meant to be entertainment not fictional or a re-run of the original...My hat goes off to all the cast who play their parts in this series perfectly...We don't have experience of these circumstances to base a story like this on it's all purely make believe..
Max Beesley for the ladies is as handsome as ever with his badboy in love character down to a T...Who cares about the others...Just please don't kill him off... Give it a chance it's worth it... :)

3.0 out of 5 stars This is the end!!! 5 May 2010
I really enjoyed this series. With some spectactular set peices and some great drama, it really drew me in....however...It seems a little pointless in buying this as, the series in now cancelled , due to poor vewing the series ends on a cliff hanger in which will never be resolved. Save your money, dont buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Survivors - we need series 3 28 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Survivors is a brilliant series - gutted to find because the BBC said it did not have enough followers it did not make a 3rd series. That was the most disappointing bit as there are bits unanswered.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Post - Apocalyptic Treat 6 Feb 2010
Despite negative reviews for both series , i throughly enjoy watching survivors. the acting is very believable and the destered surroundings add to the genuine feel of the series. the different consequences each character goes through are very well thought up and handled brilliantly. i recommened you ignore the negative reviews and watch it for yourself.
