Back to Life – 31 August 2021 – 31/8/2021 – Tuesday – BBC

Series 2 Episode 1 of 6

Three weeks after we last saw her, and six weeks after leaving prison, Miri Matteson is optimistic about her future. Her probation officer, Janice, has gotten her a trial shift at the supermarket, she and her neighbour Billy have been spending more time together, and she has found her crimper.

However, Miri is still not talking to her mother Caroline after the revelation that she was having an affair with Miri’s ex-boyfriend Dom, and she’ll need a lot of shifts at the supermarket before she can afford to move out. She is also avoiding her best friend Mandy after learning that Mandy’s secret affair with Lara’s father, John Boback, led to Lara’s death all those years ago. Things are about to get a whole lot worse with the arrival in Hythe of Lara’s mother, Norah. Still grieving her daughter, it’s clear her presence will ensure Miri cannot escape her past.

Oblivious to the approaching danger, Miri thinks her biggest concerns are Phil Solon at the supermarket and a not-date-date with Billy. Meanwhile, Caroline and Oscar try to navigate married life with the knowledge of Caroline’s affair, but rather than tackling his marital problems, Oscar reverts to his old ways and decides to tackle climate change instead. And with the prospect of Miri moving out, the couple face an uncertain future.

About Back to Life.

When Miri Matteson returns home after eighteen years, can she integrate back into her old life? With a terrible event from her past hanging over her, it won’t be easy.
