ONE 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.
Out now, 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 is available to buy online from Classic TV Press.
A great book a must for any fans of series
Worlds Apart: The unofficial and unauthorised guide to the BBC's remake of Survivors by Rich Cross is a great book. Rich Cross takes the reader behind the scenes to look into the making of the show. The writer provides an in depth look in each episodes with both synopses and reviews. Also Mr. Cross takes a look at the original novel by Terry Nation and the first Survivors show that aired on the BBC in 1975. Worlds Apart is a must for any fan of Survivors. Either a new fan or someone who has been watching the show from the beginning can learn something new about this great BBC show.

Not quite as good as the first volume
Not quite as good as the first volume, but them the series wasn't as good or as long. Some excellent work though and no one could do it better.

What a great series
Wonderful actors, perfect location and lots, lots of action, never a dull moment. I'm a fan of The Walking Dead, and Survivors is like it just with a different kind of threat... I hope we get a part 3, too much not resolved in this series to be over now, bring it back.
