Smart drama, great concept.
kate marshall
A different take on the zombie story, this is much more about exploring intolerance and attitudes in society than simply splattering the undead!
Bought it on Tinternet
The acting, the costuming, the makeup is all very well done but what really makes this show brilliant is the writing.

While I have an undeniable soft spot in my heart for the flesh eating undead, the zombie genre has been a bit overworked lately with projects (whether in film, TV, or books) of varying degrees of quality. Let's face it, the walking dead are everywhere! I'm certainly not complaining, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to find entertainment that still feels fresh and vital. So if you're looking for something a little different, look no further than "In The Flesh." This three part miniseries for the BBC takes a familiar concept and completely reworks the genre. Less a horror thriller than a social commentary, this domestic drama examines a world in which zombies return to a cognitive state and attempt to return to society. But is the world ready to cohabitate with this perceived threat?

The premise behind "In The Flesh" is pretty dazzling in its audacity. Forgiveness, retribution, prejudice, and loyalty are all concepts that face a small Lancashire village still haunted by the zombie apocalypse. Set several years after a devastating outbreak, internment camps have been set up where zombies are being treated and rehabilitated by modern medicine and psychology. Brilliantly, they are said to be suffering from PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome)! At the start of the show, we meet Kieren (an understated and effective Luke Newberry). Keiren is plagued by remembrances of his zombie past and is reticent about rejoining his family. There are still plenty of bad feelings in this tiny town and the civilian militia refuses to disband in this area. To them, the only good zombie is a dead one!

"In The Flesh," thus, poses a moral question that serves as a parable for our troubled past. When hate trumps compassion, what does that say about the future of our society?

We rarely get to see an original story these days, especially when the subject is zombies - excuse me, Partially Deceased Persons.
This 3 part series takes us into completely unexpected directions. Don't worry if you can't understand all the North Country accents. The actors make every twist plain to understand and only two or three characters have truly thick accents.

Best of all the BBC has announced a six part second series due in 2014. Can't wait.

this is such a fresh take on the whole zombie concept. just when i thought i'd seen everything one could do with zombies, someone came up with an unexpected twist. that twist is that there is a cure for zombies, aka "the partially deceased", as the government calls them. the uk government has come up with an utterly socialist way to deal with these new "people". this part is so droll and ironic that you might miss it if not attuned to the nuances of this show. the whole of government apparatus springs into bureaucratic action with the reintroduction of them into society, supporting them as the newest recovering group. they must be given daily shots so as not to revert. there is a case worker assigned to each family which is reintegrating a PD into their family household. there is a vigilante movement of the requisite rednecks which wants to execute these PDs. there is even an underground movement you can find online of those who hate being PDs and combine together to resume full zombiehood. this is just fantastic and so emotional if you put yourself into being the family members taking the PD back to reintegrate into the nuclear family.
