Synopsis
http://www.survivorstvseries.com/Gone_To_The_Angels.htmAfter staying at a train station for the night, Abby, Greg and Jenny drive on towards Peter's school, when they pass the school's minibus parked by the side of the road. They check it out, thinking it could have been used by Peter and the other boys when they fled the sickness and stop to check it out.

Abby carries on to the school in the hope that the boys are there. Greg and Jenny check out the surrounding area and come across two young children, John and Lizzie, who have been fending for themselves.

They tell them that a boy was driving the minibus and had said that the rest of the boys had gone to 'the angels'. He'd left and not returned. They think that the 'angels' were in Derbyshire.

They all go on to the school, which Abby has found is deserted. In the chapel there, they decide on their next course of action. Lizzie has the minibus key, so they go back to check its contents.

Inside the minibus are a map, with a place marked in Derbyshire, and some newspaper articles about a religious group who had retreated into the Derbyshire hills preaching impending doom just before the death. They set off for Derbyshire in the minibus.

Once they reach the area, they find a house to use as a temporary base. An unstable man called Lincoln is living there. He shoots Greg in the shoulder in fear. He explains that he has just escaped from a small settlement which was raided by a group of thugs calling themselves the 'British Government'.

Greg and Jenny are suspicious of Lincoln, who comes across as unstable. Abby meanwhile, sets off on foot to find the 'angels'.

She finds them in a remote farmhouse. They are three deeply religious men, who have not lost their faith in God despite the death. Abby is the first person they have met since they came there. Abby asks if she can stay.

Back in the house, Lincoln appears to be jealous of Greg and Jenny's relationship. They decide to leave and find Abby and the 'angels'. Lincoln briefly takes Lizzie hostage but they escape in the minibus thanks to John and Lizzie's stray dog.

Leaving Lincoln behind, they find Abby at the 'angels' farmhouse.

Soon after their arrival the 'angels' become ill. The symptoms are lumps under the arms and high temperatures.

Abby realises she has carried the 'death' with her and infected them. Abby, Greg and Jenny nurse the 'angels' until they die and then leave the farmhouse.
Reviews

By Andy Priestner
This episode introduces John and Lizzie, played with enthusiasm and vigour by Tanya Ronder (Jack Ronder's daughter) and Stephen Dudley (Terence Dudley's son). Their adoption of Greg and Jenny as surrogate parents appears to cement the couple's relationship and is touching. As in the previous four episodes, the three lead actors are consistently strong again here.

Abby's quest for Peter is becoming increasingly hopeless and a little tiresome for Jenny and Greg, and perhaps the viewer....
