Storyline

A group of train passengers, including a policeman (Ian Hart) a wanted criminal (Mick Sizer) and an M.O.D. scientist (Harriet Ambrose) are travelling to Sheffield when their train crashes inside a tunnel and a strange gas envelopes them. When they awake, they find that Harriet froze them all so they could survive the giant meteor impact that destroyed the rest of the world. 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 R. Magrath

Disappontingly Silly
28 June 2002 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

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
