Series 1, Episode 1
Sisters Kat and Jo realise there's a zombie apocalypse in Birmingham, but gamer Kat has a plan: zombies can't swim - water is the safest option, and narrowboats move just marginally faster than zombies. Jo is unconvinced, until the guy she just slept with (Jude) turns into a zombie!
Meanwhile, Amar and Sunny have been in Birmingham for a stag. When all trains back to London are cancelled and they're attacked by a train guard zombie, they flee.
Kat and Jo narrowly escape zombie Jude and set sail on Dorothy (Jo's ex-boyfriend's narrowboat). Unbeknownst to them, Sunny and Amar are hidden in the boat's toilet!

Zomboat is a reasonably decent show, it's impressively acted and a series that does have a fair few funny lines, and though it didn't make me laugh out loud an enormous amount it caused me to smile a good few times.Alex Finch, Comedy To Watch, 9th October 2019
The zombie apocalypse comes to the Midlands in this gore-filled comedy about two pairs of friends who find themselves escaping the carnage on a painfully slow canal boat from an infected Birmingham to the supposed safe haven of London. Zombie invasions may be a well-trodden premise but the writer and director, Adam Miller, uses meta-references to his advantage, turning the 30-minute show into a crossover between a wry sitcom and a fast-paced first-person shooter.Ammar Kalia, The Guardian, 8th October 2019
