Darkly witty and gripping four-part drama, ‘Flesh & Blood’, follows three adult siblings – Helen, Jake and Natalie – whose lives are thrown into disarray when their recently widowed mother Vivien declares she’s fallen for a new man, retired GP Mark.
Their suspicions are heightened as Mark sweeps their mother off her feet, shifting her priorities away from her children. Years of secrets, lies, rivalries and betrayals come to the surface and threaten to blow apart everything they’ve held dear.”
Things are made even more complicated as Vivien’s overly attentive neighbour Mary quietly watches on, unhealthily attached to them all.
With their large family home, inheritance and happy childhood memories all at risk, the siblings attempt to find out more about Mark. But will their long-buried grudges, complex relationships and complicated personal lives allow them to pull together?
See the superb Claudie Blakley as Helen in ‘Flesh & Blood’ from Monday 24th February on ITV1.
