The End is set in the immediate aftermath of a zombie rising. The characters are a mismatched band of survivors, trapped in a fortified house on a housing estate in rural England. This is a small market town, not a metropolis and not somewhere where it might be easy to tool up with weapons and take on the zombie hordes.
With food and water running out the radio finally crackles into life, an army signal, looking for survivors but camped out at the church, the church on the other side of town . . .
