Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman star in this one-off drama looking at the issue of care.

Inspired by the experiences of co-writer Gillian Juckes, the story follows mother Jenny (Smith) who has been able to hold down a job because her widowed mum Mary (Steadman) has looked after Jenny’s children while she is working. However, Mary suffers a stroke, resulting in dementia, meaning that Jenny now has to care for her.

Care is on BBC One at 21.00.
