I'm amazed at such poor reviews. I actually thought this was a particularly good portrayal of the original housemates from the 90s. All the actors slipped back into those roles effortlessly, like a decade had never past. What was incredibly true is that we never end up where we thought we would in life. With Anna as the exception to the rule - and let's face it, we all knew she'd make it big as a barrister, even in the early days - none of the original lawyers stuck with it.
This Life +10 sums up the lives of this lovely dysfunctional Southwark family since we last saw them while still leaving enough to the imagination. I love them for their flaws and warts and all. Could we have done with a mini series rather than a crammed feature-length? I would say so but hey, I'm just utterly grateful to have been able to have reacquainted myself with these guys and I think it shines through that the actors feel the same.
Love it, love it, love it!
