The whole series comes to an end. The final battle felt too short and wasn't as epic as the battle before. besides that, the ending was fulfilling and I hate to see these characters go.

This was a fairly standard zombie story. there was a slight twist to moake it different in how the zombies work, but overall it's pretty standard and run of the mill.

nothing really stood out at all other that this is very British based. The preformance was rather dry and mediocre.
