If you watch anything this week, make it this beautifully done mini-series starring Anna Friel as Vicky, the mother of transgender child Max, 11 – who wants to identify as a girl and call herself Maxine. Prepare for moving scenes as dad Stephen (Emmet J. Scanlan, aka Brendan from Hollyoaks) deals very, very badly with his son’s decision to go to school wearing a skirt, where the bullies get stuck in. And the whole situation is not at all helped by the old-fashioned ways of Nan Barbara (Alison Steadman). Eye-opening and brilliant.
