We’re off to the village of Roarton, Lancashire, setting for the BBC3 zombie television series IN THE FLESH! Created and written by Dominic Mitchell and now entering its second year, this show offers a truly fresh (if such a word can be used for zom…sorry Amy, the “Redeemed!”) take on the genre. Kieren Walker is one of many that inexplicably rose from the grave seeking the brains of the living, and now thanks to a special medication he has regained his former personality and rejoined his family along with many other PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers. But in a world struggling to integrate these “Rotters” back into society – and wondering if they even should – the living and the undead alike walk the Earth seeking answers amid a new reality of discrimination, hatred, and fear. The more things change…
