What’s it about
Patrick Melrose is a new kind of family saga which takes a scathing and sardonic view of the upper-classes, shining an unforgiving light on the privilege, greed, cruelty and vulnerabilities that lie within their ranks. Played to perfection by Benedict Cumberbatch, Patrick himself is many things: an aristocratic addict, a rakish and outr)ageously funny playboy, but he is also a man living as a victim of the sins of his parents (Hugo Weaving and Jennifer Jason Leigh). Based on the celebrated novels by Edward St Aubyn, this intelligent, beautifully told series, follows Patrick as he embarks on a harrowing yet humorous decades-spanning odyssey to come to terms with the effects of childhood trauma.
