Sheri­dan cares

TV Times - - Coming Sooné -

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.
