As a Big Brother eviction night looms, Britain is in the grip of an apocalyptic crisis. While the housemates remain oblivious, fast-moving hoards of the undead decimate the studio compound. Can production runner Kelly (Jaime Winstone) survive? Written by
Pippa's fake eviction was filmed on the same night as Belinda's eviction from Big Brother 9. All of the studio audience featured in Pippa's eviction are members from Belinda's. The extended eviction, which wasn't shown in the actual program was cut down shorter, to hide shots of the BB9 eye logo and signs held by the audience about BB9 housemates. See more »

I just watched all the episodes of this mini series and on the whole it was good. I only really have two complaints, each capping the series. The first episode tries to develop the characters but fails at it. They're standard reality TV poster kids. Too bad the writers waste half of the first episode trying to string out that sentence more than it possibly could ever be. Once it crosses the hump though it's all zombies, all the time!
The next few episodes are excellent with three story lines eventually coming together. In the realm of zombie lore this is a really well done series. Personally I think it beats out the first season of The Walking Dead, due mainly to the writing. It's believable these people would react in these ways. It's plausible that the set would be utilized like this. The Big Brother angle was a good move. (Considering I don't care for reality TV it's a compliment to the producers I kept watching, even given the zombie angle.) Of particular note is the dialog. Amazing. Pretty much every conversation is poignant. I didn't find the camera work to be annoying but I know some people might not take to the "shaky cam" look. Actually I thought the visuals were quite well done. At the very end the parting shots from the cameras inside the house are pretty intense.
Which brings me to my second issue. Towards the end of the whole thing, the reaction to the jerk character (deliciously portrayed by the actor I might add) is a little odd. All through the show the weapons the protagonists find along the way are kept near at hand. Until the dangerous guy is locked up in the bathroom. THEN the guns are just left laying around. Like no one would think of this? Particularly after sending in the weak link to calm the jerk down. C'mon. However, even though it slightly irked me it did none-the-less set up the ending beautifully.
