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.
