Yeah, with most of the world's population wiped out in the plague, we seem to get an inordinate amount of people bumbling through the series! Grin

I take it, from the title, that we will be going to the capital.

That looks like one of the Troughton boys! David, I'd guess.

I'm still drawn to that Cookie Monster coat. I guess that style could survive the plague.

Taking a look at the videos on the YouTube site, I see one that says "Here's how the 1975 BBC series Survivors predicted 2020. Well, that ruined my day.

Ra ra skirts, clogs and bat wing jackets could have survived too...Grin

Actually, I can't imagine that coat being very warm. The 70s weren't renowned for their weatherproof clothing.

The tunnels Tarrant and Dayna ran down.

That's a good setting. Old underground.

It's getting like a 1970s rep cast. These guys have been in everything.

I made myself laugh. I thought to myself seeing all the people in the Underground, why aren't they wearing masks? It would have helped.

Something similar went through my mind.

They have petrol, lights, phones- it must be a shock to Ruth.

I like her attitude. Ruth stays angry.

Ok. 12 months into the post plague.

Surely they would be better moving out, lock stock and barrel?
Ah, they explain their decision.

In spite of what they just said about breeding stock, I still think smaller connected groups is better. At least in the "short" term. It's more like when the bubonic plague swept through europe. The population was more than decimated. The outlying areas were better off.

The London commune is doing well but again, you have someone's idea of what to do and now we hear Isle of Wight. Oh, dear.

So Abby didn't find Peter after all. Now she's gone. Wonder if we will ever find out what happened to her.
