In the Flesh Trailer. BBC‘s In the Flesh (2013): Season 1 TV show trailer stars Luke Newberry, Steve Cooper, Marie Critchley, Harriet Cains, and Steve Evets. In the Flesh‘s plot synopsis: “After his death four years ago, his friends and family thought they’d never see Kieren (Luke Newberry) again. But then, shortly after his funeral, thousands of the dead were re-animated; and now, after months of re-habilitation and medication, the zombies are gradually being returned to their homes.
Now known as PDS sufferers (Partially Deceased Syndrome) – and since the passing of the PDS Protection act – the government have set an agenda of acceptance and tolerance, one that is at odds with the communities abandoned at the time of the rising, and the bloody battle between zombies and humans that ensued.
A cauldron of brutal anti-zombie sentiment and the source of the ‘rotter’ hating Human Volunteer Force (HVF), Kieren returns to his home in the rural village of Roarton. Here he is forced to confront his family, the community that rejected him and the flashbacks that continue to haunt him of what he did in his untreated state.
Kieren’s parents, Steve (Steve Cooper) and Sue (Marie Critchley), are undoubtedly pleased to see him, but his sister, Jem (Harriet Cains), isn’t so ready to pick up where they left off.
Meanwhile, the HVF, led by violent Bill Macy (Steve Evets) and backed by local churchman Vicar Oddie (Kenneth Cranham), are ready to take action against any PDS Sufferer reintegrated on their patch.”
In the Flesh also stars Sandra Huggett, Riann Steele, Ricky Tomlinson, and Kenneth Cranham.
In The Flesh has no shame in nodding toward AMC’s The Walking Dead, giving four of its main characters the last name of Walker (the re-animated dead in The Walking Dead are called Walkers), including the main character. In The Flesh seems like it will be a mixture of The Walking Dead and Warm Bodies. Both are successes, The Walking Dead being a mega-success, so its not a surprise that a new zombie show has appeared.
