    Sarah Williams Didn't Mean For Mary To Take Control Of Her Series

    Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Four of the First Season of Flesh and Blood.

    Sarah Williams is the kind of screenwriter who knows where she's going when she starts writing a script. But sometimes, a character insists on taking the story in a different angle, and Imelda Staunton's timid Mary was exactly that kind of character. Williams shows where Mary took her, and us, in a new podcast after the dramatic conclusion of Flesh and Blood.

    Russell Tovey Won't Defend The Toxic Jake — But He Loved The Part

    Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Three of the First Season of Flesh and Blood.

    Russell Tovey can't come up with a defense for the toxic masculinity of his character, Jake, a stunted manchild in his 30s searching for purpose in a world he feels should fall at his feet. But the actor loved having the opportunity to play Jake, even if he keeps viewers and listeners guessing about what happens in the final episode of this intricate family drama.

    In Crowded Family Drama, Claudie Blakley Is A Suspect

    In Crowded Family Drama, Claudie Blakley Is A Suspect

    Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode One of the First Season of Flesh and Blood.

    The new Flesh and Blood defies genres — it's a mystery, and a family drama, and a psychological case study. That contrast originally drew series lead Claudie Blakley to the script, but it doesn't mean she's willing to give anything up in a new interview.

Please, no spoilers in titles...

I have written this before and will ask again. I watched the 5th episode of Grantchester knowing that something *bad* was about to happen and figuring it out.

Please give more thought that some of us see this podcast list before we see the episode.

Interesting and engaging

The interviewer asks the most
In depth and interesting questions that it usually makes him shine more than his guests! Nevertheless I love this podcast because of that!
