Christopher Webster [Cathode Ray Mission 03.31.09] Tuvalu post apocalyptic news book

Back in February we brought you news of that the cast of BBC's remake of The Day of the Triffids was actually looking pretty stellar with Vanessa Redgrave, Joely Richardson, Jason Priestley and Brian Cox rounding out the list of top-liners. Well now we've got your first look at the cast in action in this first promotional image from the Beeb (via: broadcastnow).

In the not too distant future, man's search for an alternative fuel supply leads him to uncover the ominous Triffid, a crop now cultivated for its fuel that seems to have a life of its own. But when billions of humans are mysteriously blinded, the Triffids find their way out of captivity. Free to roam the planet with a fatal sting, and a retributive taste for human flesh, the Triffids begin rapid breeding.

Now Dr Bill Masen (Dougray Scott) must lead the brave in their epic battle against the Triffids' reign of terror in what could be the last days of mankind.

I wouldn't exactly say it was stellar. Obviously a rush job done for a sales team, but nonetheless its our first look at what will no doubt be a pretty sweet post-apocalyptic show. You'll find the full, larger image after the break.
