Now, they seem to be the only survivors of the human race in a world overrun with tropical plants and patrolled by packs of man-eating dogs. Written by
This got off to a fairly good start and was willing to overlook the silly plot device of having the heroine putting the passengers into suspended animation . The scenes as the survivors gradually thaw out and search through the devestated landscape of Britain are well done , but as the series progress we have bigger and bigger " How are our heroes going to get out of this " setpieces which come across as just plain silly
I was expecting this to be along the lines of John Christopher`s THE DEATH OF GRASS or John Wyndham`s DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS or Terry Nation`s SURVIVORS . In many way`s THE LAST TRAIN does mirror SURVIVORS but the whole series seems to be a tribute to Terry Nation , especially his setpiece work on DOCTOR WHO and BLAKES 7 which means that THE LAST TRAIN is certainly entertaining but extremely uneven .
Still this show is superior to the BBC`s sci-fi blockbuster INVASION EARTH which was broadcast round about the same time
