Survivors: New Dawn — Big Finish announces a new set of audios

Posted Filed under

Big Finish has released details for Survivors: New Dawn, two new boxsets (so far) for the much cherished Terry Nation Survivors series

When we reviewed Survivors Series 09, it was very much believed this would be the end for the series on audio. That was over two years ago; now we have news of two more boxsets under the banner Survivors: New Dawn.

Due for release in November 2021 and February 2022 respectively, New Dawn 1 and New Dawn 2 find original TV series regulars Abby Grant (Carolyn Seymour) and Jenny Richards (Lucy Fleming) returning to an England devastated by disease, and facing a renewed fight for survival alongside faces old and new.

The world has ended. The pandemic crossed continents, sparing only a fraction of the global population. The survivors are now trying to pick up the pieces and rebuild society to create a new future. But with only a handful of towns and cities starting to rise from the ashes, and governance and law-making in a fragile, fledging state, everyone must start over. And the worst of human nature has survived along with the best…

Carolyn Seymour said: “I love Abby! She’s so over the top but such a fantastic woman, and I love being back working with Luce. It’s like we’ve never not being doing this in a way, we slip right back into the same rhythm – it’s just heaven!”

Lucy Fleming added: “It’s just bliss – it’s like putting on a lovely old pair of shoes! Recording is just so much fun, and particularly with these scripts – they’ve moved the story forward a lot, so the characters and the circumstances have changed.

“It’s a wonderful position to be in, to play the same character years and years later from when you first played it – and to have not aged at all!” 

You can find out more about these two releases, including authors and story titles from the Big Finish Survivors range hub. Of course we’ll bring you reviews as soon as the boxsets are available.
