I avoided this show for a while, simply because I thought "Here we go, another zombie show." I really like "The Walking Dead" so I expected it to be a bit like it. I watched an episode that aired after "Doctor Who" and I found that it is nothing like TWD, the only similarity is the rotting flesh and that is where the similarities end. It has a darkness/sadness to it that reminds me a lot of the original BBC version of "Being Human." The show is well acted, well written and it has an interesting plot and story line.
