Critic Reviews for Back to Life: Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (15)

[Daisy] Haggard's performance is a marvel, whether she's exuding vulnerability or dishing the sass. Used and abused but never quite de-fused, she propels Back to Life to the top tier of this season's newcomers, with ample help from a crackerjack ensemble.

Back to Life...holds its own.

November 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Back to Life rides a fine line between sharply clever comedy and intensely dark mystery drama.

December 4, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Mostly, it's an alternatingly funny/somber but always emotionally affecting series with something of a Fleabag vibe... and a terrific performance from [Daisy] Haggard.

If Back to Life can commit to exploring its deeper ideas about identity, forgiveness, and mortality in its second season, it could quickly become of the best shows on television.
