Episode 3 of 6
First transmission on Tuesday February 2nd, 2010 (UK)
Fifty-year-old cockney wide-boy Billy is a trader and opportunist, traversing the desolate roads of Britain in his well-stocked container lorry, as the series charting the struggle to stay alive of a handful of survivors in a post-virus apocalypse continues. Billy meets the Family on the road and hands over vital supplies. Surprised, but grateful for Billy’s generosity, the Family decide to stay overnight in a cottage close by to help Abby recover from her terrifying ordeal at the Lab.
Later, at Samantha’s compound, Billy reveals details of the Family’s location, before dumping his young, innocent passenger, Kevin, at another mysterious compound. Samantha orders Dexter – her gun-toting henchman – to arrest Tom. She intends to reintroduce the judicial system, putting Tom on trial for the murder he committed previously against one of her people. With Tom captured and under arrest, Abby has no other option but to lead Greg and Anya in pursuit, later taking on the role of counsel for the Defence, while Greg and Anya become members of the jury. Tom’s brutal past is finally revealed for all to hear, and the Family are confronted with the reality of the man they have been harbouring. As the trial threatens to fall apart, a string of betrayals and double-crosses ensues…
Billy is played by Roger Lloyd Pack, Abby by Julie Graham, Samantha by Nikki Amuka-Bird, Kevin by Al Weaver, Dexter by Anthony Flanagan, Tom by Max Beesley, Greg by Paterson Joseph and Anya by Zoe Tapper.
