TV Zone reports new Survivors cast details

Posted by Rich Cross on July 26, 2008

In its news section, issue 230 of TV Zone magazine reports on the BBC’s announcement of the main cast for the new series of Survivors. The piece is illustrated with individual publicity shots of each cast member (though not in their new series roles) overlayed (in five cases) with thumbnails of the same character from the original series.

The piece also includes a one line quotation from Julie Graham, picked up at the press conference for the BBC’s Bonekickers – a series which The Guardian described as “mind-bogglingly dreadful… Makes Scooby Do look like State of Play.”

In the quotation, Graham reveals that she has no memories of watching the original Survivors, but acknowledges that its premise was “prescient” and that she is “excited” about the upcoming remake.
