here’s the first photo of the Cilla star and alison steadman in their moving new BBC1 drama…
Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman are firm TV Times favourites, so we love this first official snap of them together in BBC1 drama Care, set to air later this year.
The one-off, 90-minute drama sees Sheridan play single mum-of-two Jenny, whose world comes crashing down when her widowed mum, Mary (Alison), suffers a stroke and develops dementia.
Feeling torn between looking after herself and her daughters, and her mother’s wellbeing, Jenny discovers another way is possible – but she will have to fight hard for it…
The story is written by acclaimed screenwriter Jimmy Mcgovern (Broken, The Accused, The Street) and
Gillian Juckes, whose reallife experiences provide the inspiration for the story.
