Hereafter is a touching and funny human drama, starring Stephen Tomkinson and Dervla Kirwan. This six part series tells the stories of two lost souls, who in death have the opportunity to right some of the wrongs of the life they have left behind, and to learn some harsh truths about themselves.

Reuniting the leads of Ballykissangel probably seemed like a great idea. But Kirwin is rather unlikeable, much like her always-mad-about-something character in Ballykissangel but jabbering endlessly here instead of silently pouting. Tompkinson is extremely whiny and has the same look of confusion that we assumed meant angst in his previous role as a priest. Interestingly, they were the first to dump Ballykissangel for greener pastures and the show really suffered for it. They were the dour straight men off of whom the quirky fun characters were able to shine. They're still the dour straight men - but that's about all there is to them. I'm only a few episodes in and it's not quite bad enough to give up on - so I'll keep going another episode I suppose. Not a glowing recommendation there.
