    This new series fronted by Miriam Margolyes will look at one of the world's last taboos: our own mortality.
    In this immersive, thought-provoking and entertaining series 77 year-old Miriam will ponder her own mortality - alongside ours. Miriam spends time with communities in the US and in Europe to learn from those who are resisting the end and others who are facing the inevitable.

    She played a dead woman in "Ed and His Dead Mother" which had a shockingly young Steve Buscemi in it too. There's this hilarious scene where Mabel (Miriam) having been brought back to life and, of course, turning into a flesh-eating zombie, runs down the street with a knife and fork chasing the neighbor's dog.

    Life is short and all mankind need a saviour. We all sinned and need Jesus Christ.
