Yet Homefront is not a melancholy show, rather an emotional, dramatic one. It spends a lot of time offering different perspectives, and some of the writing is really exceptionally strong. Furthermore, the cast of the programme is excellent. It’s an ensemble drama, played with diligence and skill by the likes of Claire Skinner, Antonia Thomas and Nicola Stephenson. Each character, as you’d hope, faces challenges of their own, but they’re unified by the looming threat of what’s going on in Afghanistan.
Managing its tonal shifts, and there are quite a few, particularly well, there’s the odd moment of gloss that feels a little out of place in Homefront. However, this is still compelling drama, spread across six episodes, that leave you more than open to the idea of spending further time with these characters. Homefront is interesting, just a little bit brave, and worth seeking out. --Jon Foster
