Patrick Melrose

Based on the acclaimed Patrick Melrose series of novels written by Edward St. Aubyn and adapted by BAFTA award nominee David Nicholls (Far From the Madding Crowd, One Day), Melrose gleefully skewers the British upper class as it tracks the titular characters harrowing odyssey from a deeply traumatic childhood, through adult substance abuse and ultimately, towards recovery and redemption.

Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Sherlock) plays Patrick Melrose, an aristocratic and outrageously funny playboy, who struggles to overcome the damage inflicted by an abusive father and a mother who tacitly condoned the behaviour. A true television saga, Melrose is both gripping and humorous, with a dramatic sweep that encompasses the South of France in the 1960s, debauched 1980s New York and sober Britain in the early 2000s. Melrose will devote an hour to each of the five novels, with each episode storytelling a few complicated and intense days in Patrick’s life. Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Holliday Grainger, Jessica Raine.

In the long run

Created by and featuring Idris Elba – with an ensemble cast including Bill Bailey – Sky original production In the Long Run is a comedy about family, community and what home really means.

London 1985. Amid the tower blocks and shell- suits, life for Walter (Elba) and Agnes Easmon (Madeline Appiah) is all about quiet routine. They arrived from Sierra Leone 13 years ago and are happy earning enough to pay the bills with a bit left over to send back home. Walter works hard alongside his friend and neighbour Bagpipes (Bailey) at a nearby factory while Agnes patrols the estate selling make-up door to door. Their British-born son Kobna (Sammy Kamara) and his best mate Dean (Mattie Boys) hang out on the estate playing football and doing their best to dodge the local thugs.

But then Walter’s brother Valentine (Jimmy Akingbola) arrives and his exuberance and lust for life changes everything. Looking to make a life for himself in the UK, he crashes into their lives bringing laughter, music and chaos. He quickly finds work, falls in love and ignites a passion for music in Kobna. He may frustrate Agnes and test Walter’s patience but Kobna adores his uncle Valentine and, after all, he is family.
