Editorial Reviews

"A quirky romantic comedy of life after death" —The Times (U.K.)

"Top notch" —Liverpool Daily Post (U.K.)

Maeve (Dervla Kirwan, Ballykissangel) and Mark (Stephen Tompkinson, Wild at Heart) meet in London under unusual circumstances: both are recently deceased. Maeve was killed by a hit-and-run driver, and Mark died during a routine surgery while his wife was giving birth to their son. The two mismatched souls find themselves still in this world, thrown together in a weird and wonderful afterlife.

This touching and gently humorous British drama explores what it means to have a chance to help—or hinder—those left behind. Maeve’s lover wasn’t just cheating on his wife; he was also cheating on Maeve. Mark was happily married, but he left his wife and children penniless. In this afterlife, the dead can’t talk to those they knew when alive, but they can speak freely with strangers. Will Maeve and Mark be able to right past wrongs and repair relationships? What will they learn about each other, and themselves?

Seen on public television, this poignant drama also stars Peter O’Brien (Queer as Folk), David Bradley (Harry Potter), and Callum Blue (Dead Like Me).

I remember watching this series many years ago, and I have been looking for it ever since. The series contains humour, pathos, longing for the past, and working through past loves and hates.
Remembering one episode in particular makes me very sad because of the poignancy of the situation. If you haven't seen the series, I'll give you a hint: the protagonists can be remembered ONLY while they are the sight of the person looking at them. Once they move from that person's line of sight, they are forgotten.
So, roll on 14 February 2012 - this is on my MUST BUY list.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Harold Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWER on December 28, 2011
Format: DVD
A uniquely created series about life-after-death. Neither religious nor spooky, but a dramatization of the beyond like none other. Two Londoners find themselves walking the streets after being killed. One hit & run, one botched hernia op. Yet the show's not morbid. The entire series treads a fine line as it jumps from comedy to deeply moving sequences. The deceased needs no sleep, food, and never tires; but experience plenty of surprises and post-mortem opportunities. There is certainly never a dull moment with this embalmed pair. Can past wrongs be fixed, during this halfway state between life and death?
Devised and excellent writing by Sian Evans.

Six 49min episodes WITH SUBTITLES.
Episode 1 In 2000 two souls meet on a London Street. Irish lass Maeve age 27 (Dervla Kirwan-Ballykissangel) and Mark age 33 (Stephen Tompkinson-Wild at Heart) are sometimes testy, or consoling one another over their untimely deaths. Being dead, they can be seen by only strangers, not former family or acquaintances. Strangers forget after eye contact is lost.

2 Mark & Maeve are enlightened to past failure as they attend their funerals. They must look to each other, deceased mates now, not quite familiar with their new afterlife. Guest star: H. Potter's David Bradley (The Way We Live Now).

3 Maeve and Mark can affect the living in both positive and negative ways. A baby saved, one held. Not theologically based; but some second chances given.

4 Mark's wife Jo (Sally Hurst-heartless) is after a job. Maeve's cheating lover Freddie (Peter O'Brien-White Collar Blue) seeks a new affair. Plus the mystery episode has a good bit of post-post-mortem sleuthing. Guest: Patrick Godfrey (Duchess & Room With a View)

5 Mark counsels a bride as Maeve falls in love.

This well-written, well-portrayed series is a must for fans of Dervla Kirwan and Stephen Tompkinson (both from Ballykissangel). Two people meet after their untimely and unexpected death and wander around wondering what's next. The ending left me wanting more. It is a shame the series only lasted one short season. Great entertainment!

I do really enjoy these two actors together. There is a terrific back and forth with these two. Of course, coming from, "Ballykissangel", they have worked together for years. I'd recommend this lovely story.

The story and actors are very well matched. They also, were in the Balleykissangel Sitcoms series. I throughly enjoyed their performance. Love that it is watchable by all ages.

I enjoyed this series quite a bit, but can't say that I loved it. I thought the concept was brilliant.
