Survivors Tonight and Cast

BBC One's new drama Survivors is airing tonight at 9:00pm with some familiar faces. Survivors is a remake of the classic 1970s BBC series which was based on the novel by Terry Nation, who wrote the first ever Dalek and Davros stories of Doctor Who. The original TV series launched in April 1975 and ran for 38 episodes over three series.

Now re-created by Adrian Hodges (known for his writing for ITV's Primeval), a disease has almost killed every single person on the planet. A group of people still survive, but with no society, no police and no law and order, they now face terrible dangers - not just the daily struggle for food and water but also the deadly threat from other survivors.

Among the main cast are some familiar faces: Freema Agyeman (most known to Whovians as Martha Jones), Shaun Dingwall (played Rose Tyler's dad, Pete), Nikki Amuka-Bird (also known as Beth in Torchwood's episode 'Sleeper'), and Paterson Joseph (played Rodrick in 'Bad Wolf' and is also at the centre of a media storm being hotly tipped as the 11th Doctor).

The BBC Survivors website has recently opened as well, to visit follow the link below.

  1. wow alot of dr who cast,
    it is bit too similar to I AM LEGEND but this one was made first... sum1 has copied

  2. I AM LEGEND would have only started being written 2-4 years ago, but Survivors was first written for TV in the early 1970s.


Do you want Christopher Eccleston back for the 50th Anniversary?
YES!! - That would be absolutely brilliant!
Not sure - I'm not bothered either way, to be honest...
No - it's good to see the back of 'im!
