In the Flesh Series 2 Episode 4 Review

Last week In the Flesh made steps to expand its universe beyond Kieran, Amy and the Walker family, introducing other experiences born of the rising and deepening is exploration of what it all means in the process. This week, it essentially does the same thing, though this time with Philip – a character that’s been hanging around since the beginning but one who we’ve had very little idea about until now. And, a penchant for PDS brothels aside, Philip may turn out to be one of this series’ heroes.

We’re now officially past the point in which the first series of In the Flesh had wrapped up its story, and it’s easy to see why BBC3 saw fit to double the episode count this time around. We all knew there was much more to tell, which is why the first run of episodes felt so unfinished, but they’ve seriously upped their game here. For a show with only six hours to tell its story to build to a finale with this much depth and suspense, while also taking time to explore supporting characters like Philip is a marvel.
