Storyline

The eccentric Flowers family are struggling to hold themselves together. Maurice Flowers (Barratt) is the author of the twisted children's books "The Grubbs", he and his wife Deborah (Colman) are barely together but yet to divorce. As Maurice fights inner demons and dark secrets, she begins to suspect that Maurice is having a homosexual affair with his Japanese illustrator Shun (Sharpe). The couple live in a creepy, creaky, crumbling old house with Maurice's dotty mother Hattie (Hoffman) and their maladjusted twin 25-year-old children Amy (Di Martino) and Donald (Rigby). Both twins are competing for the affections of their attractive neighbour Abigail (Campbell). The Flowers family and their often self-inflicted crises are surrounded by odd neighbours - agents of further headaches and heartache. Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
16 May 2016 | by corrie-29221See all my reviews

If you are looking for something different, that is at the same time funny, bizarre and sad - then this is for you. I found myself shaking my head, crying and laughing out loud, sometimes in one single scene. While dealing with multiple issues including severe depression, the writer draws you into the lives of the characters. Where in the first episode you feel some annoyance with them, as the story develops, you develop a sense of sympathy and understanding towards each of the characters. I was so impressed by Will Sharpe that I looked him up and will make and effort to see more of his work. Truly a brilliant mind in my opinion and I have to add that it was as if the parts were written for these particular actors. However as per some of the other reviews, it is not for everybody.
