White Heat..a bit lukewarm

Just finished watching the last episode of a BBC series called "White Heat". It was OK but OMG it was slow. I found myself fast-forwarding though the long pauses between words.

It was about a group of twenty-somethings in the 60's who share a house. The story traces their lives though the years, and a parallel story takes place in presumably modern times where they return to the house when one of the group dies.

Different actors played the characters in the 1960's to their equivalents in today's times. In some cases the likeness was reasonable and believable. But in others I am not sure that they could've got it more wrong. The black guy had faded a few shades and one guy looked to be in his 40's whereas two of the other men seemed to have aged to their eighties. It was very bizarre, with probably the best thing being the snippets of 60s, 70s and 80s music throughout.
