Hello bbcthree and bbcamerica!
You’ve probably noticed that In The Flesh is getting a lot of attention on social media at the moment. Probably more attention than it got during its series 2 run.
There’s a reason for that: our fan survey results suggest most of the fandom has come to the show after the series 2 finale was broadcast.
Our survey also revealed that only 12% of the people who responded heard about In The Flesh from official BBC marketing.
The show’s popularity is mostly through word of mouth. Because this show is incredible and people talk about it. So more people watch it, and more and more people demand series 3.
Imagine what this show could become if this fan support was backed up with a real push from the BBC’s promotional team.
