I think that the accurate representation of PTSD in In The Flesh goes straight into the background when people talk about this wonderful show as more issues are represented correctly such as homosexuality, suicide and sexual assault.

But I honestly think that the character Jemima Walker is one of the most important characters and she never gets the recognition she deserves because people link her in with Gary and what she did in her past; she’s also over shadowed by the lovely Amy who is larger than life (no pun intended).

The fact that Jem is suffering with nightmares and full blown panic attacks speaks volumes about what she really felt about killing the PDS sufferers and the fact she is still torn between two groups of people is destroying her mentally as she doesn’t want to be seen as a ‘Zombie protector’ nor does she want to be seen as a ‘Zombie killer’.

Jem’s emotional and physical torture is a perfect representation of PTSD and I love the fact that the BBC weren’t afraid to go into that subject and go into it so much that it’s quite disturbing to watch at times.

I don’t know I just loved how they done all of the sequences showing Jem having those nightmares about being trapped in a test room with zombies, panicking and crying when one on Blue Oblivion came at her in the school corridor causing her to be so afraid that she wet herself.

It’s realistic.

It’s acted perfectly.

Written perfectly.

Why the hell can’t this be done in all shows?

THIS IS HOW YOU REPRESENT PEOPLE.

I’d also like to point out that this show is about zombies and they were still able to make an accurate representation of all of the mentioned issues were as shows centred on ‘normal’ people can’t even be bothered to represent them and if they do then it’s normally in a very insulting manner and not taken seriously as it is in In The Flesh.

The conflict she suffers between being terrified of her brother, her best friend and wanting to be right by his side standing up for him is powerful and beautiful when she eventually learns to look past her fear, not get rid of it but learns to push it away from her and ask for some help, hugging her brother as she’s crying.

( Let’s not forget that she’s not only holding the killings of many zombies over her head but the accidental killing of her own friend yet somehow she still manages to try and go about her life. )

I can’t even put into words how much that scene moved me, it broke my heart and filled me with joy at the same time as Jem was going to get help for her breakdown and PTSD.

People call Jem weak when she’s actually one of (if not the) strongest character in the entire series and the hate towards her is extremely difficult for me to understand.

"I would love to succeed like Frank Lampard did - play like he did and win the prizes he has won. He is an inspiration, not just for me and everyone at Chelsea but every footballer. Whoever loves the game - even if they are not a Chelsea fan - will tell you Frank is a great player. His record is magnificent. That’s why he is a Chelsea legend and always will be."
