Andrew Scott at the Pride preview premiere
my favorite part of concerts is when the band plays a song everyone knows so everyone’s singing along all out of tune but then the singer stops singing and they point the mic at the crowd and u just hear everyone in the crowd singing the words to the music and u see the smiles on the band members’ faces bc they know people care about their music and everyone’s just so happy who cares about anything else
when someone you don’t like loves the same song as you
I know I’m late but I have to do this because it means a lot to me.
In The Flesh is one of my favourite series, and it deserves so bad to be saved. I am not talented at gifs, or paintings or anything particular in that matter but I don’t care, words are fine and I desperately need to make known my opinion once again.
SaveInTheFlesh because this series is REAL. The issues addressed in this show are real, and all the people who I have led to watch it agree with me. It will be such a shame if it ends. There are so many series which are not half good as this one, and yet they are continuing.
SaveInTheFlesh because I have laughed as well as I have cried while watching it, because it makes me ponder questions and sometimes realise things that are important. I learn from this series as well as I am inspired by it.
Meet the In The Flesh fandom
For August’s #SaveInTheFlesh Social Media Sunday, here are the first results* from the Redeemed Survey.
Over 1500 people have responded so far, and it’s a pretty good snapshot of the fandom, at least as it exists on tumblr.
bbcthree and bbcamerica - as these results demonstrate, this show speaks to a lot of people who don’t see themselves represented on TV very much. We love the characters like Jem and Maxine who aren’t defined by their gender. We love that Kieren’s relationships are not treated as Issue Of The Week. Don’t take this show away. This is exactly the kind of high quality, original drama the BBC should be championing.
*more results to come!
You’ve probably noticed that In The Flesh is getting a lot of attention on social media at the moment. Probably more attention than it got during its series 2 run.
There’s a reason for that: our fan survey results suggest most of the fandom has come to the show after the series 2 finale was broadcast.
Our survey also revealed that only 12% of the people who responded heard about In The Flesh from official BBC marketing.
The show’s popularity is mostly through word of mouth. Because this show is incredible and people talk about it. So more people watch it, and more and more people demand series 3.
Imagine what this show could become if this fan support was backed up with a real push from the BBC’s promotional team.
'Well, “Pride” tells the true story of an alliance between Welsh miners and a group called “LGSM” which is Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, a group of very young, gay people at the gay pride march which, as you can imagine, in 1984, was a different pride march than we have, and they sent money down to these… this small Welsh mining village to help them out, and they formed an alliance together that still lasts to this day, and it’s a true story… and we’re all unbelievably proud of it. It premiered at Cannes there and it went down an absolute storm.'
