CAN A NEW WORLD RISE FROM THE RUINS OF THE OLD...
First shown on BBC TV in the mid 1970s, this series was conceived by the late great Sci-Fi genius Terry Nation (inventor of Dr Who's greatest enemy The Daleks). Screened during the height of the Cold War period the plot was chilling and consequently gripped the nation's imagination.
"This final series of twelve episodes is set two years after the global pandemic which claimed the lives of 99.9% of the world’s population and charts the continuing struggles of a small band of survivors in the dangerous new world left behind by 'The Death'.
It is six months since Greg (Ian McCulloch) left for Norway with Agnes (Anna Pitt) and Jack (Gordon Salkilld). During that time, Greg's common-law wife Jenny (Lucy Fleming), Charles (Denis Lill), Hubert (John Abineri), Pet (Lorna Lewis) and the children John (Stephen Dudley) and Lizzie (Angie Stevens) have left Whitecross behind to set up home at a place called Challenor.
When delirious Jack is found back in England clutching letters from Greg, Jenny and Charles set off to track the engineer down. Later joined by Hubert, the trio discover that locating Greg is not going to be easy, especially as he is on a mission of his own: to inform as many people as he can about the plight of the Norwegian people. As the survivors embark on a dual quest to find Greg and restore electric power, they face many new dangers: brigand leaders; virulent new strains of disease; and roaming packs of ravenous wild dogs. With the odds stacked against the survivors, prospects for their future now look very bleak indeed..."
