In The Flesh - Zombies Come To BBC3

With Being Human nearing towards it's end, it's nice to see that supernatural type of television isn't going to be entirely nonexistent on BBC3 as we've got a new series coming up called In The Flesh ...

The three part series focuses on a young man named Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry), a sufferer of partially deceased syndrome or a zombie, who is then having to be reintegrated into society along with fellow sufferers such as Amy (Emily Bevan), Rick (David Walmsley) and his sister Jem (Harriet Cains). However, while their condition can be managed with certain drugs, it does seem that not everyone in the community is welcoming of zombies as a group have made it their mission to take a stand from the partially deceased.

Having watched the trailer, I have to admit that I'm quite impressed with the series. Created by first time writer, Dominic Mitchell, it does seem that In The Flesh, if it's given a chance to shine could be a worthy successor to Being Human and will hopefully avoid the same fate that befell The Fades. In terms of reviewing the series, I might just give it a go, depending on my reaction to the first episode but it will definitely get mentioned in this blog again.

Press Release:

In The Flesh will air Sundays at 10pm on BBC3 from March 17th.
