Sean O'Neill lives unhappily with his wife, Yvonne, and their three young children. Sean struggles to conceal his temper and regularly beats up Yvonne as she tries to conceal the marital abuse from her family and finds it difficult to walk away from him. Yvonne's Irish mum, Mary and sister, Kerry aren't so easily deceived. Kerry arrives offering support much to the annoyance of Sean. Finally plucking up the courage to end her marriage, Yvonne gets Kerry's partner Alex to change the locks so Sean can't get into the house. But getting Sean out of her life proves impossible with him demanding access to the kids. As events spiral out of control Sean beats up Alex. It's all too much for Mary who dies suddenly after watching Alex being beat up. Recalling Mary's jibe to Sean that he'd be 'in the ground' before she was, Yvonne and Kerry ensure the prophecy comes true. They corner a drunken Sean and beat him to death with lead piping, and dispose of the body in the plot that shortly afterwards... Written by Anonymous

end to bad things
19 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot: Vile criminal Sean and his suffering family become centre stage. Yvonne can't bring herself to leave him. Her mother and sisters have other ideas. This has been great. BBC drama is doing really well unlike their sitcoms. This drama was promoted as being gritty and real and hasn't failed to deliver all its punches. There's been questions over casting and whether Jimmy Mccgovern has written characters or cyphers around whom the action is written. McGovern is known for his providing a psychology to his characters as they face real life and how they must deal with challenging circumstances. I'm happy with the characters and how they are written. Timothy Spall is always good and is at home here in this drama despite being better known as a comedy actor. One of the weaker subplots was teacher Brian Peterson (Neil Dudgeon) who got accused of being a flasher, after being desperate to urinate whilst jogging in the park and being spotted by a young girl. This issue has been covered repeatedly in popular soap opera here and McGovern did not add anything to a dead horse that has been well flogged.
