Flesh and Blood Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online

Creator: Sarah Williams

Stars: Imelda Staunton, Francesca Annis, Claudie Blakley

What do you want to see you through the last dark, dismal days of winter? A rattling good yarn by the fireside, that’s what. A rich, meaty plot stew to go with the one warming your lap of an evening. And ITV has provided one, in the form of toothsome new drama Flesh and Blood, served up in deeply satisfying portions across four consecutive nights this week. Grab a spoon and hunker down.

In a beautifully appointed home on the picturesque Sussex coast where she has lived for 40 years, dwells glamorous Vivien (Francesca Annis, so things are already BRILLIANT), a mother of three adult children who was widowed 18 months ago after an apparently happy marriage for nearly half a century to their father, Terry. Next door, in a slightly less well-appointed house in which she has lived for even longer, is unglamorous Mary (Imelda Staunton, so things just got EVEN BETTER) who – in the absence, we infer, of a family of her own though she seems perfectly content tending her garden – has always been a part of her neighbours’ lives and has grown deeply fond of them all. Nothing she says or does contradicts this and yet somehow, because Staunton is more necromancer than mere actor, she nevertheless radiates hints of darkness that have you biting your nails long before we see her take in and steam open a parcel meant for Vivien, and wear the dressing gown contained therein to eat her tea.

We open in the middle of the action: the camera pans over a broken balcony railing, a bloodstained rock lies beneath, police, flashing lights and a body being loaded into an ambulance. Mary is giving background information to two police officers. Not all of it quite matches up with the truths we are shown. As Mary describes the children in laudatory terms, we see oldest daughter Helen (Claudie Blakley) knocking back a gin in a tin on the train home from a job as a hospital administrator while issuing instructions on the phone to her disgruntled husband at home. Meanwhile, son Jake (Russell Tovey) – a personal trainer – is separated from his wife and kids and shagging a client (Stella, played by Sharon Small) and Natalie (Lydia Leonard) – the youngest, who are always the most trouble – is sleeping with her married boss (Vincent Regan) after various attempts at becoming a dancer, actress and artist didn’t work out.
