Season 3 is not a long drawn out extrusion of a popular TV show, but it is simply the best yet. The writing gets better and the loss of a major character is handled well. Every episode was riveting! Don't watch too many episodes back to back or it makes you walk funny...

I am not a horror or zombie fan, but tried this because I remember Andrew Lincoln from This Life and have enjoyed much of his work since. I was intrigued by the first series and particularly liked many of the supporting cast and their journeys. The cast have been universally strong. David Morrissey, like Lincoln, another reliable, charismatic actor steals the series. Michael Rooker as Merle gives an impressive performance managing to make a completely unsympathetic character sympathetic. He and Norman Reedus give huge depth to their relationship and the abusive childhoods that formed their personalities. Reedus in particular is outstanding, allowing his character to develop throughout the 3 series, changing from troubled, aggressive outsider to Lincoln's right-hand man and trusted advisor, fighting to protect the group which has become his first real family. Reedus also shows a very complex and sweet relationship with Carol, Melissa McBride, which emerged from the loss of Sophia, illustrating the vulnerability under the aggression. McBride is amazing in this role, a scene with Reedus in season 2 where she physically recoils from his verbal blows (spoken through fear of his feelings for her) and which is reflective of her abusive marriage is stunning. It also shows that she has found a kindred spirit, someone who has also been abused, and will not give up on him. The relationship strengthens in season 3 and Carol becomes tougher and more independent. Why McBride is hidden away in guest star status is a mystery to me. her character has always been stronger and more interesting than the irritating Lori or the whining Andrea since season 1. There is also the reappearance of a character from the first episode, another amazing British actor, which was very welcome.Read more ›

There is a t-shirt for sale in the official Walking Dead store with ''fight the dead fear the living' emblazoned on the 'wings' of Daryl Dixon and that statement pretty much sums up season 3 of the Walking Dead as the walkers are the least of the group's worries.

In season 3 we learn of the fate of two long lost characters and we see the loss of four main characters and the introduction of several new characters, the most prominent being 'the Governor' who is quite possibly the greatest example of a psychopath that I have seen in a televised series. We also see the transformation of Carl from a boy to a man.

The first episode focuses on the band of survivors settling into their new accommodation-a prison. In episodes 2 and 3 we are introduced to the Governor who is the leader of Woodbury, a small town of human survivors, which seems pretty idyllic. As Michonne said in one episode however: 'this place is not what they say it is.'

The pace of the series really ramps up in episode 4 with the loss of two main characters in one episode and one of the most moving scenes of the whole series. For the rest of the season we see the escalation in violence as Rick's band of survivors go to war with the Governor's band of survivors. Oh, and some walkers are killed too (or 'biters' as they are affectionately known at Woodbury.)

Season 4 won't be out on DVD until September 2014 apparently but having already watched it on television, I can ensure you that the series gets even better and I cannot wait for season 5 to be released on television.

There are those folk who regard films in the zombie genre as gory, ephemeral trash, not that there's anything wrong with gory ephemera. Anyway, "The Walking Dead" has lots of zombies, staggering about, snarling, biting and showing no consideration for man, woman or beast as one might expect. That said, in this well written, thrilling and somewhat gory series, the zombification of civilisation is a backdrop against which our heroes and villains struggle and suffer in much the same way as they might have done during any other catastrophe - a war, a plague, famine-take your pick.

So, this is a series that concerns itself with the human condition, albeit one in a horrific crisis. If you're secretly ashamed to be interested in what might be seen as an unintelligent and needlessly bloody genre then you may be heartened to hear that novelist Margaret Attwood is a fan of zombie films and she is clever, funny, humane and as good a modern writer as you're likely to find in the poshest library.

This season has been my favourite so far. It picks up a couple of months after the end of Season 2 with the survivors finding a large fenced prison facility that they decide to make their base camp. From there the series takes off with all the shocks, grittiness, horrible decisions and zombie gore that you could hope for. The threat from Zombie hordes seems greater this year than last as they are always probing the fences, and appear in shot a lot more often, this adds a much more oppresive and dangerous atmosphere.
Without spoiling things there are numerous big moments spread throughout the series, and the pace really does not seem to drop at all. By the end i was left wanting more immediately, which is for me the sign of a great show.
