Iv’e always thought that Neil was a boring character of the 7 up series. And Susan. I don’t really understand him, that is probably why i think he’s boring. When i first watched him at age 7 he seemed like a happy, bubbly kid. But as he grew older & older I found him getting sadder. Although he has been through a lot like going through the rejection of not getting into Oxford & becoming homeless at age 28. Where was his family?
In this episode of 56 up he still seemed sad. I would have thought that he would of gotten over him self already, but clearly not. Neil seemed like a smart man but lacked of motivation & he just went with the flow.
Still not sure about Neil.
