We are introduced to Louise Jameson part in this production, and I for one was blown away. She is stunning, her ability is without question in this, and she proves why she is such a good actress. Her performance is chilling and yet ultimately believable, the despair in her character is truly something that takes your breath away. Given that the subject matter of this is very dark. The thing now as taken another turn, and there is a darker and much more scarier turn in the proceeding. Louise Jameson character is basically falling apart and when she is finally discovered in her house, the realities of her life and what has actually happened due to the pandemic are made all to apparent. The story she tells had me gripped and also scared. The overall feel of the second part of this release is that the survivors are starting to gather, but there is an overwhelming feeling of a tribal existence starting to form, well at least in my head. Also what is a real shocker is character whom you are starting to make a connection with, are not necessarily going to be around, and that is a ruthless method of story telling, however it portrays the cruel actual cold way in which the main antagonist in the survivors group, the much maligned and potentially damaged character of Gillson is actually, not just a monster, or a psychotic but is foundation is that of someone who is actually scared. His anxiety and fear is being played out with anger and retribution, and we learn later on that this is not down to the events that have taken place. This is more to do with his process of dealing with a personal loss. Exodus as the extras tell us is a sort of second introduction to the whole world of Survivors and it is chilling and exceptional for all the right reasons, one thing is absolute this certainly as built on the superb first episode.

Straight gritty adult drama. Voices you may love in other ranges are given devastating material to perform. The cast give this everything. Louise Jameson and Terry Molloy both offer opportunities to shed a tear before bedtime. No spoilers here, just a note to say that the production team have a lot of respect for the original series, as you would expect from Big Finish. Nothing about this provides comfortable listening, but I want to carry on with it, and I want to hear more. I just wouldn't want to think about the choices they have to make, or what I would do in their position.

The interview extras also provide some beautiful supporting comment. A mature release.
