The official details…
In mourning over the loss of one of their own, and with a new strain of the virus set to take hold, the Family find themselves battling on all fronts, as Adrian Hodges’s drama charting the struggles of a handful of survivors in a post-virus apocalypse concludes.
The Family convene in the ruined Lab – with a new strain of the virus loose, the scientist’s work to find a vaccine is more important than ever. But Abby’s only concern is to find her son, Peter, glimpsed briefly beyond the confines of the Lab.
Al, believing that he has nothing left to lose, volunteers himself to test the vaccine. Meanwhile, Whitaker, surviving off the serum culled from Abby’s blood, continues to hamper the Family’s plans with lies and deceptions – leading the group to the abandoned airbase for a final showdown with the mysterious Landry.
Abby is played by Julie Graham, Peter by Jack Richardson, Al by Phillip Rhys, Whitaker by Nicholas Gleaves and Landry by Patrick Malahide.
