Big Finish reveal cover and episode summaries for New Dawn 4 audio

Survivors: New Dawn 4 cover

BIG FINISH HAVE published the cover artwork and the plot summaries for the three episodes of the upcoming audio boxset Survivors: New Dawn 4.

Some fans had concluded that the cover art would be based on the main image used to illustrate the Survivors: New Dawn 4 preview feature in Vortex magazine.

The confirmed cover image for the final release in the New Dawn series is a rural, coastal vista featuring The Old Lighthouse and the nuclear power station at Dungeness.

The episode summaries for the three stories in the boxset are as follows:

Survivors: New Dawn 4

It’s been a generation since The Death killed over 99% of the population. A new breed of people have grown up free from the trappings of 20th century civilisation, and those still clinging to the past find they must adapt or die.

4.1 Albion by Ken Bentley
Continuing their journey south, Abby and Jenny venture for the first time to Kent. There they find a strange new world where the mistakes of the past are being repeated in the present, and where life is hard for those without the skills to survive.

4.2 Fallout by Matt Fitton
With Jenny taken by an unknown enemy, Abby sets out on a desperate search. Her journey leads into dangerous territory. An old friend is on hand to help, but Ruth has worries of her own. Together, Ruth and Abby look into the mystery of sickness around Dungeness. Will they find Jenny before it’s too late?

4.3 Requiem by Ken Bentley
Abby and Ruth finally come face to face with the strange and elusive people of Kent. They soon find themselves on the wrong side of a bitter conflict which forces them to question everything they thought they knew about life in the new world.
