Back To Life - BBC on demand (first of the 'it's the new Fleabag')

Recommended Posts

Think this is worth a thread and peoples attention - all 6 eps are up on demand for immediate viewing.

 

It's another show starring and written by its creator (Daisy Haggard) but don't let the Fleabag comparisons put you off as its a totally different thing - the only comparisons at the moment is how assured and fully formed it feels right from the off, but tonally and subject wise its totally different - it delivers the Fleabag trick of making you really understand characters and feel like they're people despite them being quite lightly written.

 

The show centres round the main character returning home after a spell 'away' and the story drip feeds out over the first few episodes - it manages to be both incredibly sad and bleak interspersed with moments of humour.

 

It's well worth checking out.

We raced through this over a couple of evenings. It’s excellent. The dad steals the show though.
