Dave Marwood's trapped in a soul-crushing dead-end job. He's in love with his work colleague Melanie and his only friend Gary is a conspiracy theory nut.
His life is going nowhere until he has a Near Death Experience - though Death thinks of it as a Near Dave Experience. Soon, he discovers gifts he never knew he possessed and a world he never dreamed existed. One where the Grim Reaper is a hard-drinking, grumpy Billy Joel fan and the undead are bored, lonely and dangerous.
They're saving the world from ghosts, zombies, vampires, werewolves and medium-sized apocalypses. After a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
