The Survivors portrayed a vision of a post apocalyptic society coming to terms with itself. A virus had wiped out the vast majority of the earth population and those who were left had to come to terms with their predicament and "survive".
There were three distinct series, the first centred around three characters, Greg, Jenny and Abby, and their struggle to come to terms with their situation. The second saw Abbey leave and a community set up with Charles Vaughn and a group of others, which ultimately failed and the third saw the survivors branch out to try to unite everyone who had survived as some sort of federal government.
The first series was excellent the final series was weak, the whole concept got lost halfway through to be honest as writers other than Terry Nation got involved.
Although good this was by no means a classic overall, even though the first series was.
IF Survivors is your cup of tea then I would recommend The Last Train which was pretty good.
Survivors was always rumoured to be coming back for a fourth series set on a boat between Scotland and Norway but nothing materialised.
It is probably just as well.
