One of the darkest BF Survivors episodes so far. Scary and brilliant that is. What a cliffhanger!

The split up group are now fighting for their lives, and to find out what has happened to their splintered group. It starts to ask us as a listener questions about what society would fall into without a guide, or without the framework of a support. We are witness to what can be described as real downward spiral of human nature, to the worst level. We also soon realise that base, and the most fundamental of our needs, if required we will go to any level to stave the cravings of hunger, fear and ultimately survival. We get to hear about two individuals who are intent on their own survival at the.


We get to learn about even the worst of the worst are just out for their own, and that the group need to be stronger than ever not just for themselves but for each other, Fitton as written a rather dark and twisted final to our series 2 here, with a more than unnecessarily graphically real, audio portrayal of the demise of society and the rise of uncontrollable and sometimes immoral need to make what ever we need our reality. There are some rather big questions I think Terry Nation left us with, they are quite the most disturbing and the most real of all that is what would the world become, and would we descend slowly into a dangerous undisciplined mess, where, all we want to do is satisfy the animal in all of us.

The second series has shown us a different evil to the first, but it continues the overall theme: That the worst side of humanity will rise if given the opportunity.

I guess it was Terry Nation's vision that we didn't need another story where humanity's best rises when darkness fall, instead we are given a world where evil holds sway and the best that good people can do, is keep fighting to survive. The danger is that by fighting they risk losing what makes them good.

There are questions being asked on some key moral issues in this series. When is it right to kill and who has that right? In a world without law, how does society stave off those who are too monstrous to be part of society? The series does not thoroughly answer these questions. Its not about moralising, its about survival.

The production quality continues in this series. Big Finish producers have gone to a lot of trouble to portray the bleak desperate world and to create situations of genuine fear. They have captured Terry Nation's vision well and produced a series that is worth listening to, even though it is hard.

Louise Jameson ends the final episode saying "We have to keep fighting" though she leaves it ambiguous what we are fighting for or against, but it is clear there will continue to be a reason to fight as survival in this world just gets harder and harder.

Jackie becomes the most patronising character in the whole series in this episode. This is a shame as the rest if the cast are excellent in the dark well written tale.
