BBC’s New ‘Dr Foster’ Spin-Off ‘Life’ Starring Alison Steadman Starts On Tuesday
Hailing from the same writer as its predecessor, Life follows Anna Baker (played by Victoria Hamilton) who is now looking to build a new life as a Pilates teacher following her divorce from ex-husband Neil.
She left Neil after discovering he had a one-night-stand with Suranne Jones' character Gemma in the second season of Dr Foster.
Set in Manchester, Anna - who now goes by Belle - is just one of the residents of a large house that's been converted into four flats.
The six-part drama follows the lives (and complicated baggage) of both her and her neighbours, including our favourite Gavin & Stacey star Alison Steadman. Steadman plays Gail, who is married to Henry (Peter Davison).
This couple at the heart of the story have been happily married for years - or so Henry thinks. But on the countdown to Gail's 70th, her life is upended by an encounter with a blast from her past that leaves her questioning everything.

Belle and the couple are joined by David (Adrian Lester) and Kelly (Rachael Stirling) whose relationship is put to the test when David meets impulsive Saira (Saira Choudry) on holiday.
There's also pregnant Hannah (Melissa Johns) who is expecting to give birth any day now.
She lives with her dependable partner Liam (Joshua James), but could they be on the rocks too when the baby's father Andy (Calvin Demba) - who she had a one-night-stand with nine months ago - appears back on the scene?
As the inhabitant's personal lives become entwined in ways they never saw coming, Life tells a larger story about what happens when we step out of our personal space and take a closer look into other people's lives.
Hurry up, Tuesday!
Life airs from Tuesday 29th September at 9pm on BBC1
