Starring Jaime Winstone (Donkey Punch, Kidulthood), Dead Set is E4s new horror series in which the dead are returning to life and attacking the living. Curiously there are a few people left in Britain who arent worried about any of this thats because theyre the remaining contestants in Big Brother. Cocooned in the safety of the Big Brother house, theyre blissfully unaware of the horrific events unfolding in the outside world. Until an eviction night when all hell breaks loose.
Kelly (Winstone), a production runner working on a fictional series of Big Brother, finds herself trying to fend off the walking dead alongside her producer boss Patrick (Andy Nyman, Severance), boyfriend Riq (Riz Ahmed, Britz) and the remaining Big Brother housemates. Featuring cameos from Davina McCall and several former housemates, this is a cruel and twisted take on one of TVs biggest game shows. Dead Set was created and written by Charlie Brooker (Nathan Barley co-creator and Guardian writer).
Synopsis
BIG BROTHER gets a NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD makeover in horror spin-off DEAD SET. The action takes place during a fictional series of the reality TV show, with stories unfolding both on camera in the 'house' and with the staff behind the scenes. When a zombie outbreak occurs the contestants are blissfully unaware inside their secure little bubble, a bubble which soon becomes a fortress when outsiders seek refuge from the walking undead. Inevitably, the infection spreads into the 'house', turning the popularity contest into a scene of carnage, with cast and crew uniting to escape the ultimate 'eviction'.

Jaime Winstone (KIDULTHOOD) stars as production-runner in peril Kelly, with Andy Nyman (SEVERENCE) as hotheaded producer Patrick, Kevin Eldon (HYPERDRIVE) as a disgruntled housemate, and even a surprise appearance from Davina herself. The innovative show is the creation of writer and cult television satirist Charlie Brooker (SCREENWIPE, NATHAN BARLEY) so be prepared for some dark humour, as pop-culture turns zombie and feeds on its own kind.

Are you kidding me? I taped these when they were on and was so gripped that I watched them in one go!

I hate Big Brother, so seeing it sent up like these was fantastic IMO.

Same "Parent company" behind the production, very different set of core values

I predicted the ending pretty much straight away as it seems to be the default one for many Zombie movies so would have liked something different.

Did you know Charlie Brooker the bloke who wrote it is getting married to Konnie Huq the former Blue Peter presenter.

HOT! Fantastic series. makes a change from all the serial killer/alcoholic cop drama the UK usually churn out.

Yes I saw that. Surprising that such a self flaunted misanthrope would get married! Good luck to him though.

great show. Can not fault anything by CB.

I am sure that'll be a jolly wedding.

Great little zombie mini-series, well recommended!

Auhhh you kidding always fancied a bit of Konnie myself, the one who got away huh! :whistling:

This is awful. Probably Brooker's worst work. Very below par.

Get Nathan Barley instead, much better screenwriting.

i have seen these on download free some where, will try to post link soon... abstained from voting as dont think its worth more than £3... sorry op..

This is the freshest zombie sh*t in years. Miles better than Romeros sad offerings of late.

Great deal for a great few hours of daft/awesome TV.

well worth the watch!

Amazing series, I'm waiting for the Blu Ray but I don't think it will ever arrive

C4 seem to be reluctant to release their programmes on Blu-Ray (eg. Free Agents, which was also recorded and broadcast in HD but only released on DVD). Personally I'd download some 720p HDTV rips then buy the DVD to salve my conscience...
