Each of the wve episodes of the drama Pa­trick Mel­rose, star­ring Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch in the ti­tle role, will be based on a dif­fer­ent novel in the ac­claimed se­ries by St. Aubyn about a self-loathing up­per-class English­man who was abused as a child. Cum­ber­batch, 41, who won an Emmy for TV’s Sher­lock, says the Show­time se­ries (May 12) re­minds us “of the dam­age that can be done to innocence and how to try to un­der­stand that, re­pair it and help vic­tims be­come sur­vivors and progress with their lives.”
