BBC Dr Foster spinoff series!
BBC Dr Foster: We may be waiting quite a while yet before we see another season (or indeed a trailer) of its spin-off show – but we have news of it that seems on par with the original.
We have more details on the upcoming show Life, created by the same team behind the hit drama featuring Suranne Jones.
The six-part drama airs Friday nights on ITV and is set in Manchester. It follows the stories of four different families living in a large house divided into flats. In the north, among these residents is Belle, who changed her name from Anna Baker, after the events of BCC Dr Foster, in order to begin a new life as a pilates instructor.
What is the spinoff about?
A cameo by Anna’s ex-husband Neil Baker in BBC Dr Foster will disrupt her new life, as well as that of her teenage niece, later in the series. The Bakers lived next door to Gemma and Tom (played by Adam James and Victoria Hamilton).
After Neil’s serial cheating, Anna and Neil tried to repair their marriage, but she left forever in series 2 when she learned that Neil had slept with Gemma (Suranne Jones). As soon as Anna learned of Neil’s betrayal, she announced she was moving to Edinburgh to live with her sister and would never return in BBC Dr Foster.
In the last series of BCC Dr Foster, Anna broke up with Neil and moved away, but Mike Bartlett, the show’s creator and writer, hinted that this was just the beginning of her journey.
Review from Audience
I was disappointed with the supporting cast, even though the acting was superb in BBC Dr Foster. You quickly became angry with the smarmy husband of BCC Dr Foster who fed her lie after lie in order to conceal his affair. There is no portrayal of that in this TV drama. After initially believing him, we discovered he was a devious rat. It was the horror of the perfect marriage that threw us into the reality that we were reminded of real-life people who suffered similarly, and we were reminded of ourselves.
A lack of acting skills on the part of the lead characters ultimately made watching difficult. When the boy’s parents break up and cheat on each other, he suffers as do many children when their parents lose trust in one another. We enjoyed seeing it on BBC Dr Foster, however, I would not recommend it to anyone in an unstable relationship.

While on holiday, David meets impulsive Saira and is tempted by her.”
After that, the article continues with “When Belle’s teenage niece Maya unexpectedly intervenes in her life, everything is turned upside down for Belle.”.

Thus, this was all about the spinoff series of BBC Dr Foster. The BBC says in a statement: “Because each of the four stories unfolds and intertwines in surprising ways, the four separate but interconnected stories tell a larger story about what happens when we take a closer look at other people’s lives.
We predict that Life will be the TV talk of the year if it at all resembles BCC Dr Foster, a comedy that explores love, loss, life and death.
