Zombie teenager Kieren Walker isn't comfortable in his 'undead' state. He didn't want to come back, he wanted to be dead. After his suicide four years ago, his friends and family thought they'd never see him again.

American zombie shows have a reputation for being action-thrillers with lots of guts and splatter and moaning hordes. This BBC miniseries is very different, and is largely a drama. I mention this, because judging by some of the other comments here, some people aren't used to moody British drama, and it's not for everyone.

In the show, zombies are aligned to be equivalent to schizophrenics, made to take medication to manage their symptoms. The main character is himself a zombie, and the story starts with him leaving rehab to return home to his small country village which is very prejudiced against creatures like himself.

I watched the first episode. Had no interest in continuing. A downer, uniformly gloomy. Sullen, acidic characters and atmosphere.
I can see the potential. The show might explore the conflict of loyalties between family and society amid a zombie affliction. But I can't get past the lousy presentation.
