Sarah Williams is the kind of screenwriter who knows where she's going when she starts writing a script. But sometimes, a character insists on taking the story in a different angle, and Imelda Staunton's timid Mary was exactly that kind of character. Williams shows where Mary took her, and us, in a new podcast after the dramatic conclusion of Flesh and Blood.
Russell Tovey can't come up with a defense for the toxic masculinity of his character, Jake, a stunted manchild in his 30s searching for purpose in a world he feels should fall at his feet. But the actor loved having the opportunity to play Jake, even if he keeps viewers and listeners guessing about what happens in the final episode of this intricate family drama.
Viewers of this intricate family drama might still be searching for answers, and Flesh and Blood star Lydia Leonard could easily put the mystery to rest in a new podcast interview. Fortunately, the talented actor keeps viewers and listeners on their toes in a new conversation, leaving a few tantalizing crumbs as clues.
The new Flesh and Blood defies genres — it's a mystery, and a family drama, and a psychological case study. That contrast originally drew series lead Claudie Blakley to the script, but it doesn't mean she's willing to give anything up in a new interview.
