Goofs

A major plot point of Series 2 is that the scientists must reinfect Abby with the virus in order to extract her blood and make a cure. They even go so far as to say they don't know how her body will react as she is the only person to ever be infected twice. A person cannot be reinfected with an identical strain to a virus their body has already fought off once, because your body has developed antibodies to it. See more »

A Great Escape!
8 January 2010 | by newpapyrusSee all my reviews

This post-apocalyptic remake is an excellent escape into a desolate Great Britain after a global pandemic wipes out most of humanity. How a small group of surviving strangers come together and grow into a protective family of friends in a new world where hostile villages and gangs have already started to emerge is fascinating to watch!

And just to add more intrigue to the entire situation, the secret organization that appears to be responsible for releasing the plague in the first place is still up an running as they attempt to find a cure that will allow them to re-emerge from their high tech ecologically isolated facility.

I can't wait for the second season!
