The Last Train ITV Scifi, Nicola Walker, James Hazledine

Six-part ITV scifi drama The Last Train follows the fate of a group of train crash survivors after the Earth is ravaged by a giant meteorite strike. Travelling from London to Sheffield when the meteor hits, a suspicious canister carried by scientist Harriet Ambrose (Nicola Walker) ruptures, plunging the carriage-load of passengers into a state of suspended animation.

They awake to find a startling new and devastated world – with no sign of human life. What happened and how long were they asleep? Convinced that there will be other survivors holding the answers at a top-secret installation in Scotland known as ‘Ark’, Harriet persuades the group to embark upon a perilous journey across the UK. With threats ranging from acid rain to wild animals, their mission will be anything but easy – and with no guarantee that they’ll find the answers they are so desperately looking for.
