Jo Spain and Stu­art Carolan’s drama Taken Down (RTÉ One, Sun­day, 9.30pm) has made head­lines while seem­ing to be torn straight from them. Har­row­ing, con­tro­ver­sial and eye-open­ing, it now reaches its much-an­tic­i­pated con­clu­sion.

A sin­gle mother re­lies on her own mother’s sup­port to mind the kids while she works. But when the older woman suf­fers a stroke, and is di­ag­nosed with de­men­tia, the dy­namic flips sud­denly in Care (BBC One, Sun­day, 9pm), a drama based on real ex­pe­ri­ence.
