Dead Set is a five-part horror thriller created by English comic writer Charlie Brooker. The series is set in the Big Brother house, and was first aired on E4 on 27 October 2008. The five episodes, aired over five consecutive nights, chronicle a zombie outbreak that strands housemates and production staff inside the Big Brother house. Although the house is one of the only places left where people can shelter from the zombie attack, the infection soon seeps in.
Kelly,Space,Marky,Veronica,Pippa and Joplin are sat around the Big Brother studio trying to figure out why the dead are coming back to life.
Joplin interjects by quoting the book of Revelation:
“The sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.”
(Pause)Everyone looks at Joplin, slightly perplexed. Joplin continues...
“Judgement day! It’s in the Bible!”
“You can’t wheel out the Bible.”
“Hold on a minute, I thought you were an atheist?”
“Are you trying to say that God’s punishing us or summit?"
“No, I’m not saying God is…”
“You know that Iraq, yeah? I never agreed to that in the first place, so that wouldn’t be fair anyway! And you know that other place- Palistinia…”
Joplin tries to get back on track:
“I’m not even saying there is a God: but if there is, maybe all this is happening, because he, she or - it, is judging our culture and spiting us accordingly!”
Marky ponders for a second:
"Yeah but, why be such a cunt about it?"
