Flesh and Blood

Created by Brit Sarah Williams (The Long Song, Becoming Jane), this foreboding and intelligently constructed drama captivates with its themes of family secrets, envy, dissatisfaction and simmering resentments. Boasting a highly talented British cast including Imelda Staunton, Russell Tovey, Francesca Annis, Claudie Blakley and Lydia Leonard, the series was co-produced by ITV and Silverprint Pictures.





When their recently widowed mother, Vivien (Francesca Annis), finds a new love interest, Mark (Stephen Rea), siblings Jake (Russell Tovey), Natalie (Lydia Leonard) and Helen (Claudie Blakley), greet him with mixed feelings. Simultaneously, their long-term neighbour Mary (Imelda Staunton) also has some opinions about Vivien’s new romance.
