Our good friend @GrrAargh alerted us to a new zombie three-parter about to air on BBC3 after reading about it on StarBurst Magazine. The BBC Press Release has all the details:
In The Flesh is an exciting new three-part drama for BBC Three that tells the story of zombie teenager Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry) and his reintegration back into both the local community and the heart of his family.
After his death four years ago, his friends and family thought they’d never see Kieren again. But then, shortly after his funeral, thousands of the dead were re-animated; and now, after months of re-habilitation and medication, the zombies are gradually being returned to their homes.
Now known as PDS sufferers (Partially Deceased Syndrome) – and since the passing of the PDS Protection act – the government have set an agenda of acceptance and tolerance, one that is at odds with the communities abandoned at the time of the rising, and the bloody battle between zombies and humans that ensued.
Sounds good, huh? We’re always happy to hear about new zombie series, particularly ones set in the UK.
Of course, this is a drama so I’m not sure that their vicar will be quite up the comedic standards of Father Aloysius Rambo, and I think that the uniforms and elite training of Z Force could probably be up to the challenges of dealing with modern-day zombies. Especially if Koenig managed to ‘redeploy’ Peabody.
We are not sure when we’ll be able to watch it, so we’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
Our own little zombie series is on hiatus at the moment and we haven’t any news to share about a possible second season so the best we can offer is an amazing rewatch of all episodes, specials and promos. Hope springs eternal…
