Excellent BBC Drama.
I can't believe this had 4m viewers and nobody's come on to write something on here about it. Oh well, I'm the very first and I'm glad. This comic drama from Craig Cash and Phil Mealy was brilliant and I wish it had been a longer series. BBC do make good TV once in a while and this is definitely high up on the list. Bernard Hill and Steve Coogan are particularly brilliant in this but I really loved the kid playing little Joe. What a lovely little actor.# The chemistry between the boy and Bernard Hill playing his granddad was brilliant and lovely. And Coogan surprised me nicely with a very good dramatic performance. I love Coogan's comedy stuff- he's a legend but here he is really giving an acting turn. Sunshine has really stand out funny moments but it's really about the relationship between the 3 generations of Crosby men- George (Hill), Bing (Coogan) and Joe (young Dominic). It was so lovely to watch the relationship with George and his grandson and the chemistry was wonderful. It was incredibly moving towards the end. We knew it was leading up to sadness- I just felt it in my stomach it was going to be sad but I was surprised how moving it was. I was filling up with tears. It really was sad and so brilliantly performed. Lisa Millet deserves mention here too. I found she was so good in the role of Coogan's girlfriend and was a lovely, warm performance. The whole cast are good. Daniel Ryan, Craig Cash, Phil Mealey. This drama showed us about family love and the bonds between fathers and sons and never giving up and loss. Funny, heartbreaking and brilliant.
