Interviewed on BBC News on 12 October 2008, Doctor Who supremo Russell T Davies predicted that the revival of Survivors will be ‘terrific’.
Appearing at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, Davies took viewer questions about his work on Doctor Who. One viewer asked if there were any other science-fiction series that Davies would be interested in reviving. Davies, who had previously expressed an interest in being involved in a potential Survivors reboot, replied:
“No, I wouldn’t do another one, because I’ve done the best, frankly. The BBC is doing Survivors now – an old Terry Nation from the Seventies that is on this Autumn. I hear good things about that. I’m really looking forward to that. Written by a man called Adrian Hodges, who’s brilliant. So I think that’s going to be terrific.”
