I killed people too. Funny story of my own actually. I rose from the dead, and then after that I ripped people apart.
Okay, maybe it’s not that funny but you can sit there and listen to it anyway like we did with you. It’s weird at first because all there is is just darkness. It’s so dark. Doesn’t make a difference if your eyes are open or closed. What you think is that you’ve been buried alive…
Not ideal. Now that’s proper, proper panic, that, you know? You hit out at the lid of the coffin, even though you know there’s no way. But then it starts to give. You have to push your way through all the soil. Takes ages, doesn’t it. Takes so long.
Then suddenly, something’s different - you feel the wind on the tips of your fingers. And the rain. ‘Cause before that you’re not really sure where you are, but, but now you know, and you’re pushing through, and then all this stuff at once - the moon, and this incredible storm blowing. And the clock chiming midnight and you’re just standing there. Nobody else around and all of it pushing into me.
That feeling… it’s like what being born must be like. Except you’ve got context. Because, honestly, dead, everything up until then was fear. Everything. Even when I was alive. Just different levels of fear. And then it’s gone. And you’re like “Yeah, come on! Give it to me! Fill me up!”. But you know what, Gary? This hunger, this appetite, I could not wait to get started.

Newberry is hopeful that Kieren’s struggle and discovery of inner strength will make him a relatable lead character for viewers who might feel under-represented. “It does bring up really important issues that need to be talked about, like teenage suicide and anxiety. Kieren is an incredibly anxious guy, and In The Flesh talks about anxiety in a way that I don’t think many things do. Anxiety’s not spoken about, it’s sort of ignored, I think. Hopefully Kieren will be a voice for those people, that’s my hope.”

You - Keaton Henson

If you must leave
Leave as though fire burns under your feet
If you must speak
Speak every word as if it were unique
If you must die, sweetheart
Die knowing your life was my life’s best part

I’m so fucking depressed with In The Flesh’s season finale :(

Who started crying uncontrollably in public while listening to this song today? THIS GUY!

The papers, billboards, the television were full of sleazy, side-of-the-mouth advertisements in the run-up to privatising the Gas Board: IF YOU SEE SID, TELL HIM. Building a shareholding democracy, they were calling it. Don called it theft on an epic scale. Sid was anonymous, a punter about to miss one of the bargains of the century. Pssst! Spread the word. To Don, Sid was some English wide boy into dodgy wheeling and dealing. He refused even to contemplate buying shares in privatised utilities. They belonged to him already. Why would he pay to own a bit of what was already his? He’d baulked at getting the house on the cheap too. There was a principle which he could not betray. Thrawn and stupid it was, no doubt, but he couldn’t help himself. Besides, he had other things on his mind. His wife of forty years was dying.
The gas sale went ahead without him. British Gas plc was born. Don read Barnaby Rudge, A Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist and Bleak House.
