Watch the teaser trailer for BBC Three drama In The Flesh after Being Human on Sunday (24/2/2013)

Being Human viewers will get a quick glimpse of new BBC Three drama In The Flesh on Sunday at 10:58pm.

The exciting new three-part drama tells the story of zombie teenager Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry) and his reintegration back into both the local community and the heart of his family.

The story follows the re-animation of the dead and the zombies gradually being returned to their homes.

The zombies are known as PDS sufferers (Partially Deceased Syndrome) - and they have to try and integrate back into society four years after violent and bloody battles when the zombie outbreak happened.


Writer Dominic Mitchell explains in more depth: "When I first came up with the idea, I was always 'what would really happen in a zombie apocalypse?' Not the movie version, but the real version. And in the real version, in my head, the scientists would always be trying to find a cure, or find some way to manage the undead.

"I want it to be for a really wide audience and to talk about real issues, real family issues, real domestic issues, and we play with the zombie methodology. We do have a few scenes of real great zombie genre stuff, but then you have a scene where it's really domestic and they're sitting around the table just trying to be a family again, and that's what I really wanted it to do. So, your Grandma can watch it, hopefully, and really enjoy it, and it can speak to her as well as speak to the teenage zombie horror fan.

"Kieren isn't comfortable in his 'undead' state, he didn't want to come back, he wanted to be dead. That's a journey for Kieren - here's someone who didn't want to be alive and now he's alive again, and he's discovering that life is worth living, weirdly, but now he's partially deceased.

"It's about redemption, forgiveness and battling against prejudices, and that prejudices can cause chaos if there is no forgiveness - that causes chaos to you and the community."

Tune into Being Human this Sunday at 10pm on BBC Three - the one-off teaser trailer for In The Flesh will screen straight after.
