Lust, greed, wrath, envy, and pride are just some of the deadly sins that plague a seemingly happy family in a mystery-thriller.

Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter, Vera Drake) and Francesca Annis (Reckless, Cranford), who play close neighbors cast into a generational psychodrama, star in Flesh and Blood, airing in four cliffhanging episodes on Masterpiece, Sundays, October 4-25, 2020 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Also starring are Claudie Blakley (Grantchester, Cranford), Russell Tovey (Years and Years, Little Dorrit), and Lydia Leonard (Gentleman Jack, Apple Tree Yard) as the grown-up children of Annis’s character, Vivien; Stephen Rea (The Stranger) as a suspicious new addition to the family; and David Bamber (Victoria) as the detective who tries to work out whether an unfortunate incident was an accident or, in fact, a heinous crime.

In the premeire episode, Vivien introduces Mark to her three grown children, and they are suspicious. Meanwhile, their own lives are a mess.
