As far as shows about the un­dead go, The Fades is well above av­er­age. It even picked up a best drama gong at the Bri­tish Academy of Film and TV Awards. It has a com­pli­cated and in­tel­li­gent pre­text about dead peo­ple who have not yet been ac­cepted into the af­ter­life who are liv­ing on earth but are un­able to be seen, heard or felt, hence the term fades. And it has some at­trac­tive young stars who de­liver their lines with great con­vic­tion. But that wasn’t enough to save the se­ries from be­ing axed af­ter only just one sea­son. Know­ing that makes it a tough choice as to whether it’s worth the time.
