According to Daniel Cotton (Philip Glenister), there three battles that shape our lives: nature versus nurture; free will versus destiny; and City versus United. But his life is about to change forever. Saturday 15th June 1996, an ordinary day in Manchester. England are preparing to play Scotland in the Euros. Daniel has brought together his adoptive brother Robbo (Steven Mackintosh) and father Samuel (Bernard Hill) in the hope of healing a family rift, when they are caught up in a massive terrorist attack and from this moment Daniel's life will never be the same again. In helping Joanne (Liz White) escape the debris Daniel wonders what it would be like to someone else, someone more exciting. The trigger for major changes in Daniel's life and the reinvention of Manchester City Centre, the bomb does much more than cause devastation. Spanning four years, 'From There to Here' brings to life a family, a city and an era in a way that no-one who watches it will ever forget.
All-star cast gives this story credibility
- From There to Here review by ChrisB
I think the storyline would have been less believable were it not for the brilliant acting of each member of the cast. Phil Glenister, in particular, shines as the rather dour husband, son and father. You'd think he'd have enough to contend with with his own, somewhat flawed, family (not forgetting another who makes an appearance later on); but, no, he decides to complicate his life in the most infuriating way.
A very enjoyable watch nonetheless.
