Trivia

Several of the names in the series are puns. Kieren's last name is Walker, which is a term sometimes used to refer to zombies. Amy's last name is Dyer, referencing her deceased state. The show is set in the fictional village of Roarton, which sounds like "rotten". See more »

Goofs

It's mentioned that when the PDS Sufferers were in their untreated state, brain eating was how they got their energy. It's never stated how they got their energy in their treated state, as the drug that keeps them in line only exists to help them function and doesn't actually give them energy. They can't eat or drink anything and are seen using sheep brains as a drug, but that exists only as a high. See more »

British Zombie Brilliance-EASILY on a par with the Walking Dead
12 April 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

When you see a new drama previewed on BBC Three you can be sometimes forgiven for thinking 'its on a channel for kids and student types -must be rubbish' and then forgot all about it. I remembered Id seen the trailer and decided to give it a go-not expecting much...after all its on BBC Three.

So I gave it a go and I wasn't disappointed. In the Flesh is a brilliantly written and acted, realist, British 'kitchen sink drama' take on the Zombie apocalypse that gives the viewer lots to think about on Life, Death and Love.

With standout performances from Ken Loach stalwarts Ricky Tomlinson and Steve Evets and newcomers Luke Newberry and Harriet Cains In the Flesh delivers as emotionally driven drama and a horror
