The series features a large ensemble cast as survivors of a zombie apocalypse, trying to stay alive under near-constant threat of attacks from the mindless zombies, colloquially known as "walkers". However, with the fall of humanity, these survivors face conflict from other living survivors who have formed groups and communities with their own sets of laws and morals leading to hostile conflict between the human communities.

The series has been well received by critics, although reception has declined as the series has progressed. It has been nominated for several awards, including the Writers Guild of America Award for New Series and the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama; the Walking Dead takes place after the onset of a worldwide zombie apocalypse. The zombies, colloquially referred to as "walkers", shamble towards living humans and other creatures to eat them. Although it seems that only humans that are bitten or scratched by walkers can turn into other walkers, it is revealed early in the series that all living humans carry the pathogen responsible for the mutation; the mutation is activated after the death of the pathogen's host, the only way to permanently kill a walker is to damage its brain or destroy the body, such as by cremating it. The series centers on sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes. While in a coma, the world has been taken over by "zombies." He becomes the leader of a group of survivors from the Atlanta, region as they attempt to sustain and protect themselves not only against attacks by walkers but by other groups of survivors willing to use any means necessary to stay alive.

Sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes wakes from a coma discovering a world overrun by zombies. After befriending Morgan Jones, Rick travels alone to Atlanta to find his wife Lori, his son and his police partner and best friend, Shane Walsh, encountering other survivors; the group travels to the Centers for Disease Control, but find from the sole remaining CDC member that no cure exists for the epidemic. Traveling from Atlanta, Rick's group takes shelter at Hershel Greene's farm while they search for Carol's missing daughter, Sophia. Tension between the survivors worsen after it is discovered that Hershel has kept friends and family turned into zombies, including Sophia, in his barn. Rick learns that Shane and Lori were romantically involved at the outset of the apocalypse, Shane and Rick's friendship becomes unhinged when Lori reveals that she is pregnant. Rick is forced to kill Shane in self-defense; the noise draws zombies, forcing Hershel's surviving family to evacuate the farm. Eight months after fleeing Hershel's farm, Rick's group finds a prison, which they clear of zombies to make their new home.

Lori dies in childbirth, Rick becomes withdrawn. Meanwhile, Andrea is rescued by Michonne and the two discover Woodbury, a fortified town led by a man known as the Governor, he learns of Rick's group at the prison, leading to conflict between them. Rick's group raids and destroys Woodbury, but the Governor has Andrea killed and escapes. Woodbury's citizens live with Rick's group at the prison. Several months after the Governor's attack, a deadly flu kills many of the people at the prison; the Governor finds his former right-hand men and kills them, taking over their group and destroys the prison. Rick's group are forced to separate and flee, but not before Hershel and the Governor are killed; the survivors divide, face their own trials and meet new faces before finding signs pointing to a safe haven called Terminus. One by one, they reunite at Terminus. Rick discovers the residents of Terminus engage in cannibalism, but the group overwhelms Terminus and reunite; some are injured and kidnapped to Grady, a hospital run by corrupt doctors.

When the survivors recover, they are approached by Aaron, inviting them to join a fortified commu

Jack the Nipper

Jack the Nipper is a video game by Gremlin Graphics released in 1986 for ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, MSX. It was followed by Jack the Nipper II: In Coconut Capers; the character is loosely based on the British comic strip character Sweeny Toddler. Jack the Nipper is a side-view flip screen game with puzzle platform elements; the graphics are rendered in 2D, but an illusion of depth is achieved by allowing characters to move forward and back within the playing area. The player controls a naughty child who wants to break the record for naughtiness, he needs to carry out various wicked pranks on the unsuspecting inhabitants of his town, but if he comes into contact by angry adults he will be spanked. With each spanking his "nappy rash" meter increases, if it grows too high Jack loses a life. Contact with the monsters and ghosts which inhabit the town will increase the nappy rash; the game went to number 2 behind Ghosts'n' Goblins. Sinclair User described it as having a "Wallyish style reminiscent of Pyjamarama, running wild through the village, searching houses and gardens for objects you can use to create havoc elsewhere", in an environment populated by "Beano"-type characters.

The review noted how it was "tempting when you come across a well-tended garden and you just happen to have a bottle of weed killer... And there's the tin of glue and the false teeth factory..."ZX Computing praised the graphics. The Spectrum version was voted number 40 in the Your Sinclair Readers' Top 100 Games of All Time. Starting in April 1987, Your Sinclair magazine published a monthly comic strip based on the character.
