4.0 out of 5 stars Surprises.......!!, 21 Oct. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Survivors: The Complete Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
It is pretty well documented that the 2nd series of Survivors takes a surprising turn away from Terry Nation's original concept of the show and as such I was a little more than sceptical at whether this 2nd series would be any good. The first series was simply brilliant, exciting , groundbreaking drama... what would be in store on this 2nd dvd...?
Well surprisingly more of the same.I was expecting the second series to be the study of agriculture and farming etc etc...but it really isn't , yes it has those themes but its really much more of the same , just a different setting. The main problem - if there is one with series 2- is the loss of the lead actress Caroyln Symour as Abby Grant - but because the show and this serious error of judgement was made over 25 years ago now , I dont think one can get too worked up about it. There is a wonderful performance by Celia Gregory as Ruth which tips the scales in its favour and Denis Lil is very very good as Charles . Perhaps the only thing i really noted was the lack of " men in Land rovers with guns" which I personally loved . Loved, loved , loved...If Terry Nations first series was about the need to defend yourself after a " death " of civilisation then the 2nd series is about having to reap what you sow , how we would need to put down roots and small settlements and live off the land. Its an interesting premise and while I didnt enjoy it as much as the first series its still fabulous entertainment and well worth the buck!
Enjoy........
