This BAFTA award winning drama really is the BBC at it's best. Writer Dominic Mitchell is on typical blazing form with this show, which crackles and shimmers with quality. Not usually a fan of zombie-type things, I didn't know what to expect with this show, but within the first 10 minutes of the first episode, I could see that this would be a drama on a whole other level, which would use the post-apocolyptic zombie theme as a conduit, rather than a shallow focus. A conduit for some of the most gripping, emotional, political, sensitive, complex, and intelligent drama I've seen in a long while. The main character, Kieren, is simply beautiful, and Mitchell's writing of the characters gives so much credit to the viewer's own intuition. Nothing is shoved in your face, and that makes the emotional impact of this show, and Kieren's story, so much more intense. Bravo, BBC. I can only hope that this gets renewed for a third season. I can't think of a show that deserves one more.
