Survivors – BBC TV

The BBC's revival of the classic 1970s post-apocalyptic drama by Terry Nation

What plotlines and characters is the new series based on?

The revival of Survivors is based on the storyline of Survivors creator Terry Nation’s 1976 novel of the same name. In the novel, Nation revisits and revises the plotlines and character set of his first series Survivors episodes The Fourth Horseman, Genesis, Gone Away and Garland’s War (and some minor plot elements from The Future Hour), before veering sharply away from the first series TV canon to introduce a entirely new take on the evolution of lead character Abby Grant’s fledgling settlement.

The new Survivors includes characters from the original series and introduces new ones. This blog includes a new series character guide.
