Plot Synopsis

Opening with emergency vehicles on the scene of a life-threatening mishap, the mystery for viewers is: Who has done what to whom? As D.I. Doug Lineham elicits the details in flashbacks, it all started innocently enough. Widowed a year and a half earlier, glamorous former salon owner Vivien invites her three children to their seaside childhood home for an important announcement: she has a new man in her life, Mark, a widowed retired surgeon. Wrapped up in their own complicated relationships, the children have mixed reactions. Career woman Helen is the eldest, and she is slightly wary of Mark, perhaps because she sees romance as entirely transactional, which is how she treats her stay-at-home husband, handyman, cook, and occasional sex partner, George. Naturally, she is curious what Mark wants from her mother. Jake is downright hostile to Mark, possibly out of guilt over the breakup of his marriage to Leila. Also, he's worried about his inheritance, which may be his only hope for financial security. Aside from his income as a personal trainer, Jake earns extra cash as a kept man for one of his clients, Stella. Only Natalie, the youngest, is genuinely excited for her mom, likely because a fulfilling partnership is Natalie's fondest wish. At the moment, she is in the fifth year of an aimless affair with her boss, Tony, who promises to divorce his wife, Carla, so he can marry her. But he has yet to deliver. Then there is the opinion of Mary. Having no close family of her own, she has been a second mother to Helen, Jake, and Natalie. A born sleuth, she conveys her serious doubts about Mark in the most elliptical way imaginable. As for Mark, he dotes on Vivien, treats her to awkward and expensive surprises, demonstrating his social skills -- plus he really wants to marry her. The question on everyone's mind: Is he hiding something? FLESH AND BLOOD had its U.S. premiere on Sunday, October 4, 2020 at 9pm on PBS (check local listings).
