In The Flesh

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - 20 greatest tv shows -

One thing that has been a re­cur­ring theme in SFX’s life­time is “fan­tas­tic shows can­celled be­fore their time”. Alas, In The Flesh is one of th­ese ( curse you, BBC!). A thor­oughly Bri­tish take on a post- apoc­a­lyp­tic, zom­bie- filled world, it dealt with com­plex is­sues such as sex­ual iden­tity, PTSD and the ef­fect of sui­cide on a small com­mu­nity in a sen­si­tive and af­fect­ing way, and could be heart- stop­pingly tense, hi­lar­i­ous and des­o­lat­ing in a sin­gle episode. Glo­ri­ously writ­ten, poignant and much, much missed.

You dropped ’ em, you tidy them up.

Um, fancy a game of five- a- side?
