In The Dead, most of Britain has fallen to an invasion of zombies. There is no escape from their insatiable appetite for living flesh. But in Oxford an unlikely alliance between a crew of fire fighters and a pair of misfit soldiers has allowed them to survive. Now, with the city virtually overrun, it's time to strike back!!
