Reviews

According to Daniel Cotton (Philip Glenister), there are three battles that shape our lives: nature versus nurture; free will versus destiny; and City versus United. Saturday 15th June 1996, an ordinary day in Manchester. England is preparing to play Scotland in the Euros. Daniel has brought together his adoptive brother Robbo (Steven Mackintosh) and father Samuel (Bernard Hill) in the hope of healing a family rift, when they are caught up in a massive terrorist attack and from this moment Daniel’s life changes forever. In helping Joanne (Liz White) escape the debris Daniel realises he wants to be someone else, someone more exciting… The trigger for major changes in Daniel’s life and the reinvention of Manchester City Centre, the bomb does much more than cause devastation. Spanning four years, From There to Here brings to life a family, a city and an era in a way that no one who watches it will ever forget. For contractual reasons music edits have been made from the original transmitted version. Starring Philip Glenister, Bernard Hill, Steven Mackintosh, Saskia Reeves, Liz White, Morven Christie, Daniel Rigby

Daniel Cotton is 45 and caught up in the Manchester bombing. We don't know his back story but my guess would be he married at 18 because his wife was pregnant. This would fit in with his having two adult children, two grandchildren and a leading position at his father's sweet factory. My next guess is his father gave him the job to help support the very young family, Daniel took it gratefully and worked hard.

This explains for me why a supposedly happily married man starts an affair, gives himself a whole new background and the resulting stress very nearly kills him. The bomb incident is the catalyst, he comes round from the explosion and knows nothing will ever be the same again. He's then given an opportunity to try out a different life and he grabs it with both hands.

The relationship with his brother Robbo is close because Daniel was adopted at age five and it's often true that adopted children are peacemakers and form close relationships with other family siblings. Not always of course but often enough. Robbo's life is a real mess but later we find out that the whole family are living messy and complicated lives.

The ending is excellent, you're given a good indication of where Daniel is heading and who with. There are moments of laughter, pathos and deep sadness. I felt the adoption story was very badly handled and someone should really have spoken to adoption support and adoption counsellors before including this part of the script. In my view, it needed a total re-write.

Acting, costumes, settings, scenery all first class. Unfortunately none of the music of the TV showing made it to the DVD. As I have only seen this on DVD I don't know if this is essential to the story. Nice picture gallery and behind the scenes feature as extras.

Format: DVD
This is a very well written three hour drama from the BBC that features some first class acting. Phil Glenister, whose character (Daniel Cotton) shares the arrogance of his most famous incarnation (Life on Mars' DCI Gene Hunt), holds the whole thing together superbly and he's supported by a very strong supporting cast. Covering a period of four years following the IRA bombing of Manchester in 1996 and the events that unfold within the lives and businesses of Cotton and his "families" as a consequence, it's refreshing to watch a drama this good that's neither imported or a crime drama. Funny in parts and moving in others (but never too much in either direction (although I did laugh out loud a few times)), it authentically evokes memories of a not too distant past and it's the best British drama I've seen for some time. Well worth watching if you missed it on TV.

Format: DVD
This is basically a family drama in which the Manchester city centre bombing of 1996 proves a catalyst for big changes in everyone's lives. Well, mostly in Philip Glenister's as the main character Daniel Cotton. He starts leading a double life, having embarked on a relationship with the cleaner he rescued from the pub. It has a great cast, some smart lines and doesn't outstay its welcome at around 170 minutes (originally shown in 3 episodes on the BBC) but I'm not sure I believed in decent Daniel's moment of epiphany having had a close shave with death. He was supposedly happily married so wouldn't he rather have been more thankful for what he had? Still, that's a personal opinion, as is the distraction of casting Liz White as his girlfriend when she was put-upon 'Doris' Annie Cartwright to his D.I. Gene Hunt in the superb 'Life on Mars'.

No neat endings, thankfully, but still nothing outstanding. Steven Mackintosh as wayward brother Robbo is a tad hammy; the use of music to denote which year the events took place is annoying (does nobody play anything but this year's hits, in any given year?!) and the natural/adopted thing has been done in the 'Quirke' novels by John Banville, which unfortunately aired within a week of this. OK for a quiet evening in, particularly if you are a fan of Glenister's rugged features, but pretty inconsequential.
