Kelly, Marky and Space make it to the supermarket. While Kelly and Marky gather supplies, Space waits outside and encounters two policemen who threaten to shoot him as a looter. Kelly and Marky are chased out of the supermarket by two zombies; the police shoot the zombies, but one of them gets bitten, and his colleague shoots him. He tells the others that those bitten die and turn quickly into zombies. Spotting a wound on Marky's arm and thinking it is a bite, the policeman goes to shoot him too; unable to reason with him, Kelly picks up the other policeman's gun and shoots him in the leg. More zombies appear, and Kelly, Marky and Space escape in the van. Meanwhile in the greenhouse Grayson tries to comfort Angel, but when she stops breathing Grayson realises he needs to kill her in case she turns into a zombie, but he hesitates and is attacked by the now zombified Angel who bites him fatally in the neck. Joplin and Veronica manage to force Angel into the pool, and stab Grayson in the head just as Kelly and Marky arrive. Seeing that Zombie Angel is unable to get out of the pool, they realise that the zombies are not intelligent. Kelly shoots Angel with the police officer's handgun and vows that they will win against them. At the country house Riq turns on the television, and discovers the E4 Big Brother live feed is still broadcasting. Alex hears a French broadcast on the radio and determines that a rescue boat across the channel has been established, but has no doubt left, stranding them and any other survivors. Suddenly, just as hope begins to fade, Riq is relieved to see Kelly and the others on screen.

    Four words: Best. Eviction. Episode. Ever. The only thing that could have made it even more delicious? Zombie Chenbot.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Vulgar and noisy, and often disgustingly hilarious, Dead Set is the perfect pop-culture poison for those of us convinced the world of Big Brother and its spawn is an endless night of the living dead, turning participants and fans alike into craven zombies.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    I was surprised at how much adrenalized horror there is to be found in the story, as it races forward into bloody human-zombie battles and scary entrapments. This isn't a wink-winkfest so much as a sly screamfest, with lots of post-apocalyptic misery and carnage afoot.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    On balance it plays like a well-made and increasingly grim horror picture, with a crispness of execution and a graphic level of intestine-pulling, throat-ripping violence that are both beyond the American norm.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    Dead Set is less remarkable, because this import from the U.K. is more typical of the genre and gets campy, although it will scare the bejeebers out of you.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    For all its gore, Dead Set has a frightening lack of suspense. Then again, except for Kelly (Jaime Winstone), a "Big Brother" producer with a dysfunctional love life, most of the characters are so lacking in humanity that the transition to zombie isn't much of a leap.
