A Mother's Son

Preview Martin Clunes’ New Project: ITV’s “A Mother’s Son”

ITV has released the first teaser for upcoming drama A Mother’s Son. The two part effort stars MI-5’s Hermione Norris, Doc Martin’s Martin Clunes and Doctor Who’s Paul McGann.

Norris plays Rosie Haleton, a mother who comes to suspect that her son Jamie may be involved in a murder after a young girl is found dead in their small community. Rosie is tormented by the thought that her son may be guilty, and wrestles with the question of whether to tell the police about her suspicions. Clunes plays her new husband Ben, and McGann her ex David, and everyone’s relationships grow increasingly strained as Rosie’s suspicions grow and evidence stacks up. Did Jamie commit this terrible crime? It’s impossible to make a solid guess based on what we’re given in the press release, but this certainly sounds like a solid psychological drama to me. (I love watching people freak themselves out by going round and round about some central uncertainty. I think I may be strange.)

Click through and take a look at the teaser for yourself and share your thoughts in the comments. Is this the sort of thing you'd like to see more of from Clunes in the future?
