A FOUR-PAGE FULL-COLOUR retrospective feature on Survivors was published in the April 2008 edition of SciFiNow magazine, authored by S:AWA editor Rich Cross.

In issue 13, which went on sale on 20 March 2008, the 'Modern classic show' slot of the magazine focuses on Terry Nation's classic post-apocalyptic TV drama.

The richly-illustrated feature includes: reasons why the series should be considered a 'classic'; a guide to the 'best' and 'worst' five episodes of the series; and a wide-ranging discussion of all three series of the programme.

When published, back in the spring of 2008, this issue of SciFiNow was available through all high-street newsagents, and had a cover price of £4.00.

The issue cannot currently be purchased through the back-issues services of the SciFiNow website (which does not offer copies from 2008), but copies do periodically appear on online auction sites.

The Covid-19 lockdown badly impacted on the sales of a range of magazines and journals, and during 2020 SciFiNow was forced to cease print publication.
