Episode 1 - A very moist cardigan
After the Prime Minister’s death on the 15th of May, ethnic tensions grew in England. Their landslide re-election, coming only days before, had stoked protest among Nottinghamshire dissidents, who used the legacy of Yorkshire’s devolution to once more demand the status of a republic.
Episode 2 - Up a stream
Dubbed “England’s answer to Pompeii”, the 687 inhabitants of Sutton-cum-Lound, known for its proximity to numerous fishing lakes, were poisoned and preserved by formaldehyde from nearby fracking plants, embalming residents in the midst of daily life.
Episode 3 - Pretentious carrots
The people of Nottinghamshire found strength in separation, with the abandoned shops and paved streets of derelict town centres pulled up for root vegetables to prosper. Rural communities focused on self-sufficient economies of dung.
Episode 4 - Liberry
The automated security turrets, forged in cement and steel by his majesty’s government to keep the county’s people in, now inadvertently kept the desperate hordes out, as civil war broke throughout the rest of the England- the cracks of gunfire like distant fireworks as Ilkeston burned itself to the ground.
Episode 5 - Gerbil deathcamp customer services department
Young and old toiled together, and though teeth did rot, no one was unemployed, given work had once more come to mean daily survival. After the Black Rains, the insects were first to die. Then the fish. There was a stay of execution for six months, when turnips would still grow. In turnips we trust. Then all was barren.
Episode 6 - No no stupido
Occasionally an adventure-minded leader would propose using long ropes to climb up to Ingle-Land. Shamans suggested the entire earth was rotten, and that they would be climbing from one hell, to an identical or worse facsimile. People liked the word facsimile. They no longer new what it meant, exactly, but took solace in fragments of their shared past.
