Episode 17: Escape from Scotland (Doomsday)
In the not-too-far future, a plague strikes Scotland, killing without mercy, and England chooses to stop the spread of it by walling off Scotland and letting them all die. Years later, with England cut off from the rest of the world due to their actions, the plague is found again. Now one (hot) woman, an escaped orphan of Scotland and a cop, is sent back into her birth land with a team to find a cure. And what they find is plenty of still-living Scots, now broken up into gangs, some of whom are a little sweet on the taste of other humans. In this very grindhouse-y and highly entertaining action film, bits and pieces of all manner of post-apoc classics--from Escape from New York to Road Warrior to 28 Days Later--are woven together to create a nitro-burning, sword-fighting, rock-and-rolling ride called Doomsday. Join hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell as they break it down for you in this latest edition of Post-Apodaclypse.
