Masterpiece Debuts Two New Dramas
Sundays, 9 p.m., starting Oct. 4
The beginning of October brings us two new programs from Masterpiece. Mark your calendars for these exciting shows!
Flesh and Blood
Imelda Staunton and Francesca Annis star in a juicy mystery about the perils of late-life romance. Claudie Blakley, Russell Tovey, and Lydia Leonard play the grown-up children of Annis’s character. Stephen Rea is her new gentleman friend. Staunton stars as the inquisitive next-door neighbor. And David Bamber is the detective who tries to work out whether an unfortunate incident was an accident or a heinous crime. “A brilliantly intense crime thriller,” judged the London Daily Mirror.
Follow the British Prime Minister and his Cabinet Office Briefing Room A (COBRA) committee, comprised of leading contingency planners and senior politicians, as they navigate the difficulties in overcoming a major national crisis.
