Fantastic! - apart from the sequel,
This review is from: Blackpool + Viva Blackpool 3 Disc Set [DVD] (DVD)
I love Blackpool, it's definitely one of the BBC's best shows this side of the millennium - the brilliantly catchy songs, the Ripley/Natalie/Carlisle triangle - missed it when originally shown but it's fantastic. All three of the leads act their socks off, esp David Morrissey who was born to be Ripley - such a contrast to his character in the equally fab 'State of Play'. BIG BUT - the sequel is awful, twenty minutes in and I had to turn it off. Ripley's lost all of his spark and there's a big hole where Natalie and Carlisle's amazing chemistry used to be.
