BBC One gears up for The Living And The Dead

Dunster Castle SomersetSupernatural drama The Living And The Dead is on course to begin shooting in the West Country at the beginning of August, with pre-production getting underway next week.  

The 6 x 60 is from Ashley Pharoah and Matthew Graham, creators of Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes and Eternal Law; it is produced by BBC Cymru Wales in association with the writers' shingle, Monastic Productions.

Set in Somerset in the late 1800s, the series centres on a community adapting to the recent sweeping changes in the industrial landscape - a time when, in a land of myths and demons, ghosts would rise out of the ground. Gentleman farmer Nathan Appleby is fixated on proving the existence of the afterlife, investigating hauntings and visitations; disturbing events which become increasingly  terrifying.

Charlotte Moore, controller BBC One, said of the drama: "From the creators of Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes comes exciting new fantasy series The Living And The Dead, steeped in real history and mythology that will scare the audience and awaken the dead."
