Four years after the Rising, the government starts to rehabilitate the Undead back into the society, including teenager Kieren Walker, who returns home to his small Lancashire village (filmed in Marsden) to face a hostile reception as well as his own demons.
Explores re-integration of those deemed outside normal society & perhaps our ordinary and extra-ordinary response to difference.
Going past the genre of ‘zombies’ this series challenges our conceptions of who is in and who is out, especially when the evil antagonist in the second series is female and black and yet quite fascist in her outlook.
The genre is not that scary but some of the ‘real’ characters are troubling!
