In The Flesh
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?
