Producer Inspector Sands Director Lu Kemp

97 years go by in a flash. An afternoon lasts an eternity. In a care home lounge somewhere off the A1, Marsha Hewitt begins the last day of her life. But she cannot go quietly. As the radiators burn and Jeremy Kyle blares, rivalries, relatives and murderous impulses jostle for space on the Axminster carpet. By teatime, a riot is brewing. The award-winning Inspector Sands shine a light on how we cope, or fail to cope, with ageing.

Reviews
