Product Description

Renowned filmmaker Shane Meadows follows up the explosive award-winning This Is England ’86 with This Is England ’88.

Meadows picks up the action in the Christmas of 1988 as Lol struggles to cope with what life has thrown at her. Haunted by the devastating events which took place 18 months previously, she finds her reserves of strength ebbing away. With her soul mate, Woody, heartbroken from her betrayal and in self-imposed exile from the gang, Lol becomes increasingly isolated and alone. They say Christmas is a time for forgiving and for forgetting, a time of love and laughter and joy ever after. But when all hope seems lost, what peace is there to be found? This is Christmas. This is England.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best yet, 19 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
Utter genius and the best TV drama i've seen for a long time.
Different to the first two in pace and humour (less of each) but i feel it's the best yet due to some deep exploration of the pain of separation and sense of loss,
Absolutely top class performance from the actors playing Woody and Lol , outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 10 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
In my opinion the best yet in the TIE series. Quite bleak but thought provoking and still retains flashes of dark humour. Sublime acting, fabulously shot a real must watch. Keep 'em coming Mr Meadows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Misteltoe and whine 29 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Following on from the events that happened in This Is England '86, the gang are back, looking more like characters from the 'Angry Birds' game than ever!
After Lol gives birth to a baby, clearly not fathered by Woody, they find themselves moving away from not only one another, but also their family of friends.
Shaun's eyes begin to wander more than usual and Woody is faced with a difficult decision at work...

After Meadows' first stint at a TV series seemed to work, he's back once again giving the audience more poignancy and grim~up~north depression than ever. This series' main themes are around ghosts from the past effecting the present, guilt, loss, separation, betrayal, friendship and love.. So once again not a massive amount of fun to be had then? Nope, but there is humour and without a doubt this program gives us some excellent drama. Drama that's definitely well acted and made. With several performers (this time I'll praise Blyton and Graham) delivering fine moments. There's no mention of football, as it takes place at Christmas, and again I wasn't 100% sold on the 1988 vibe or the lack of any bad guy menace or build up to any real finale, but ultimately, if you liked This Is England '86, or for that matter if you like watching people shout at one another and cry a lot, then you'll like this..

The Blu ray comes with cast and crew interviews, a commentary on episode 3 and some deleted scenes.

4/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but not great
Much better IMO than TIE 86 but still only 3 stars for me.

Apart from Woody and Lol there is little in the way of character development. Read more
