Product Description

In The Flesh is set in a small village in the North of England, post-zombie uprising, as rehabilitated zombies are reintroduced back into society. Now known as PDS Sufferers (Partially Deceased Syndrome), they have been caught, treated and, armed with their flesh cover-up and special contact lenses are returning to their friends and families who previously thought them dead.

The series follows our hero, Kieren Walker, a 17 year old who committed suicide four years’ ago when his best mate Rick died serving in Afghanistan. He’s now returning to a village where he always felt like an outsider and a family who never got to say goodbye. We follow Kieren as he struggles to cope with fitting back in, with the guilt of what he did in his untreated state, and the sudden reappearance of Rick, a fellow PDS Sufferer. The boy that Kieren thought was dead is alive and the boy Rick thought was alive is dead.

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.

In The Flesh offers something different from the usual take on the zombie apocalypse. Instead of focussing on the actual event, it takes a look at what happens afterwards when a cure is found and zombies (the Undead/ Partially Desceased Syndrome Sufferers) are returned to society.

The first season of ITF is a somewhat quiet show focussing on guilt, trauma and redemption. Focussing on character growth and internal drama rather than action, the character protrayals and acting is fantastic. Everyone is a fully-rounded character with understandable motivations. It also deals with some highly sensitive issues with tenderness and hope.

The second season moves its scope a little as outside influences begin to shape the local community where most of ITF takes place. In that sense, it feels more dramatic, but it never loses its core as a well-written character-driven piece, Indeed, the second season sets itself up nicely for a lot of mysteries and intruigue in the (hopefully) third season.

Please don't be put off this show if you aren't a huge fan of zombie films, because it is so. much. more. Equally, don't turn around now if you love them because this show is for everyone, and I think that it is important for everyone to watch it.
If you are unsure, please listen to me and watch it - you will not look back for a second. It is DEFINITELY the best programme that I have ever seen.
'In The Flesh' not only has a gripping plot and BEAUTIFULLY written script, but could actually be honestly life and attitude-changing and perhaps have the power to make the world a better place.
In only nine episodes, there is more plot and character development than many shows manage to achieve in far more series. This character development not only allows you to connect, thereby drawing you in, but also emphasises the effect the show has on you.
Probably most importantly, the show addresses issues which no other does, such as sexuality, suicide and discrimination, and handles them beautifully and with great care. DONT BE PUT OFF WITH THIS EITHER - such issues are addressed without making them the main plot line or over-emphasising them, and also without putting a hugely depressing spin on the show - there is always light and hope and beauty. These issues are merely present: important, but not utterly defining the characters through whom they are shown - characters are so much more than their sexuality, or mental struggle.
I want to emphasise that this is for everyone, and you will realise once you watch it that everyone around you must, too.

By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 Aug. 2014
Format: DVD
One night thousands rose from their graves and set about satisfying their craving for blood. Authorities rounded them up and began to experiment. Many of the "Partially Deceased" responded to treatment, the results dramatic. Surely they can now be returned to their homes, looking almost human thanks to contact lenses, makeup and daily medication. Just one major problem. Will they be accepted...?

This is the story of young Kieren and others who came back, their attempts to reintegrate.

Be assured this is not typical zombie fare. Here are not the traditional lurching, grunting brain-dead, but ones who are as sensitive and articulate as they used to be. Take Kieren (Luke Newberry excellent). What was the secret that drove him to suicide? What will he make of this second chance? What about Amy? Is she really so cheerful or this an act to disguise fears? All have their stories - they individuals, not to be lumped together and condemned

What hope of successful rehabilitation with a firebrand vicar whipping up hostility and local trigger-happy hotheads like Bill, who want to get rid? (That is until Bill learns his own son Kirk is back, he who was killed in Afghanistan....)

Involving and highly unusual, here is a sensitive exploration of attitudes towards minorities, how the unscrupulous and misguided can inflame in-built prejudices. Who will be first to offer the hand of friendship, create bonds that unite?

Two seasons. 3+6 episodes, each an hour. No bonuses (this disappoints). Throughout there is much to admire. (Some, though, may have doubts about the visiting MP's secret agenda, this perhaps unconvincing.)

Welcome here a series thought-provokingly different. Yes, there is horror, but not nearly as much as one might expect.
