So I decided to partake in another 200-350 #horrorbite #flashfiction challenge again set by Laura Jamez (for more info, click here). Story this time inspired by this image;

“I thought you were going to get chairs in the shade?” Barry complained again to his wife.

“…and I thought we were going to Venice to absorb some culture…” Jan replied abrasively, “… miserable old sod” she grumbled in a whisper.

“What’s that, dear?”

“I grabbed a cocktail and just parked here … want to sunbathe.” I suppose all-inclusive isn’t so bad, she thought.

“I’m off to dip my toes in for a few minutes, Jan.”

“You knock yourself out…”

#SaveInTheFlesh - Sunday 10pm UK time - let’s grab the BBC’s attention!

Hello fellow In The Flesh fans! Wow, there are a lot of us now, aren’t there?

So, we all want series 3. Unfortunately, it’s not a done deal. To make sure we’re perfectly clear in letting the BBC know we’re behind the show, we propose that on Sunday night at 10pm UK time, we all start talking about #saveintheflesh


  • We all create a post - this isn’t about likes and reblogs, this is a show of numbers. It could be a bit of fan art you’ve made, your favourite quote, a picture of your favourite character, or even just one of the images above
  • Here are screencaps for images and here are the scripts for quotes
  • In the caption, say how much you like the show and that you want another series
  • Mention BBC Three’s tumblr account in the caption so they get a notification when you publish. To do this, simply include “@ bbcthree” without the space. This is important - we want them to see
  • Tag it saveintheflesh
  • Schedule it for 10pm UK time on Sunday night


  • Go and write on BBC Three’s facebook page that you want a new series


  • tweet #saveintheflesh at BBC Three
  • after creating your own tweet, retweet a few others from the tag a few minutes later

Timing is everything here people! If we all work together at the same time, we can send a strong, united message of support for the show to the BBC. If we’re lucky, we might even trend.

Remember: Sunday 22nd June 10pm UK time

Spread the word!

… by Caroline © Kimberley

Anxious of loneliness but sacred to go out,

Anxious of people but claustrophobic without.

Angered at everything but often care less,

Angered with greed but crave to excess.

Wish for a miracle, believing in fate,

Believing in realism, despising your state.


I think I’m a PDSS (Partially Deceased Syndrome Sufferer) 

or perhaps I’m just a reyt big In The Flesh fan. It’s brilliant! If you haven’t seen it, then you just gotta, especially if you’re into Zombies and Zom Coms and Zom Drama and Realistic Zombies

There’s a rising and they’re not all hungry for flesh well not with their medication anyway…if you’ve seen Les Revenants and thought that was good, this is basically the British answer to that … and if you do watch In The Flesh and have never seen The Returned then you’re missing a treat there. 

So yeah, I’m a massive fan of modern (and old and all) zombie stuff. All hail the second coming! :D

(apparently I look like a lizard “we do not judge the lizard zombie people”)
