New Survivors book

The Survivorsbbctv blog is pleased to announce the publication of a new guidebook on the BBC’s remake of Survivors, written by the author of this blog and published by Classic TV Press. Full details as follows:

WORLDS APART: The unofficial and unauthorised guide to the new SURVIVORS

Worlds Apart front coverOne of the standout televisual highlights of recent years, Survivors succeeded in remaining true to the essence of the original series whilst delivering strong characters and storylines, and a hauntingly modern setting. Starring Julie Graham, Paterson Joseph, Max Beesley and Zoë Tapper, the remake proved to be a series which could be enjoyed both by those coming to the show with no memories or awareness of its predecessor and enthusiasts of Terry Nation’s original. Due to be published in March, this guidebook – though unofficial and unauthorised – serves as a comprehensive guide to the new Survivors and includes:

  • A detailed behind-the-scenes section on the ‘making of’ the new series
  • In-depth synopses and reviews of all of the episodes from Series 1 and 2
  • Cast and crew interview material
  • An exploration of previous attempts to revive Survivors
  • Similarities and differences between the new Survivors and the original series
  • An examination of Terry Nation’s original novel on which the new series is partly based
  • A photographic guide to the first series’s filming locations and exclusive production shots

The book can be purchased online at a discounted price from Classic TV Press.

  1. Make a third series, put it on later, different time and channel?
    Or, gather anyone that can be bothered and crank up the old version, it could hit a big niche considering the proliferation of interest in bushcraft/traditional skills/world paranoia from terrorism etc etc..it could be shot very simply and instead of action thriller, it should, it ::needs:: to be philosophical in its content and characterisation..it could be written dramatically but not for show, take the opening third of “mad dog”, it stands out as an intelligent, sincerely written and with memorable performances by memorable characters…

    I shall return

    1. Maybe the third season can be done as an audio book drama. Or like the tv show “Jericho” which was made into a series of graphic novel –>comic books. Maybe it can paid for with a kick starter /go fund me campaign.
