Things can only get better
5 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

From There to Here traces the repercussions of the Manchester bombing by the IRA in 1996 on the city and the Cotton confectionery family that includes Philip Glenister (Dan), Steven Mackintosh (Dan's shiftless brother, Robbo) and Bernard Hill (miserable dad.)

England might have eventually lost the semi final on penalties in Euro 1996 but Manchester regenerated due to public-private finance initiatives and an injection of over a billion pounds worth of investment.

For the Cottons, the outcome is less certain. Dan is restless as he tries to reunite his adopted dad and estranged brother Robbo. He forms a friendship with Joanne (Liz White) a survivor from the bombing and they have an affair.

Robbo uses the opportunity to clear his debts with the local drug gangs by setting up another bombing incident that can be blamed on terrorists so he can get compensation.

By the time of the second episode set in 1997, Joanne has given birth to a baby and the father is Dan who is now juggling two families. Dad wants the confectionery business to be galvanized by his financial wizard grandson and his left wing granddaughter is swept into Parliament as part of the New Labour landslide where she takes a rock solid Tory seat.

The pressure of lying to his wife and mistress who wants to keep both parts of his lives separate takes his toll on Dan as he ends up in hospital.

By the time the final episode arrives things have moved on for Dan who has separated from his wife, his politician daughter is having an affair and his son seems to be talking financial garbage and has run the family firm to the ground. Dan also finds out that his adopted dad is in fact his real dad.

While the acting is good and Peter Bowker infuses his drama with some good, funny lines I expected more here. The Cottons do come across as a real family but I expected the political backdrop of the Blair led Labour government to have more impact. A mixture of politics and social drama affecting the north of England in a modern period setting.

What we have is a disappointing OK but so what drama that will soon be forgotten.
