Excellent journey through nostalgia of my growing years
29 October 2017 | by Rupert17See all my reviews

Follows the lives of seven London housemates from their youth in mid-1960s to the present day. Many of those well-known events during that era form the backdrop of the lives of the seven protagonists.Naturally there are many ups and downs in their personal lives and their particular interactions with each other. I know some use the word cliché to describe familiar situations, but much of a life lived is a cliché to all of us, but this doesn't mean it's not interesting or informative.

Very strong cast of the younger and older versions of the seven characters and the script maintains a strong level throughout. If all you want from a miniseries are murders and heroics, then don't bother with White Heat. If you are after a genuine dramatic depiction of how ordinary people live their lives while the world seems to be imploding around them, then you'll get something out of this mini-series.
