Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) returns to our TV screens with a mind-blowing performance as the eponymous Patrick Melrose, a deeply troubled man struggling with his past and out-of-control drug-fuelled present. Co-starring Hugo Weaving (The Lord of the Rings) and Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), this Sky original production is based on the much-loved novels by Edward St Aubyn and adapted by renowned writer David Nicholls (One Day).
We first meet Patrick Melrose the professional gadabout and hedonist extraordinaire in the early 1980s. He’s a witty, privileged twentysomething who’s partial to pretty much every narcotic imaginable, but when news of his father’s death breaks, who knows if it’s the heroin or their terrible relationship that causes him to react with such indifference.
Patrick dutifully goes to collect his father’s remains from New York, where, he confidently declares, he will get clean. But that is easier said than done. He’s soon hitting the city’s seedier back streets to score a fix of anything and everything on offer.
Prepare for the extreme highs and the crashing lows of Patrick Melrose in this riveting drama featuring a performance of a lifetime from one of Britain’s acting greats Benedict Cumberbatch.
