His new drama MotherFatherSon starring Richard Gere, Helen McCrory and Billy Howle begins on BBC Two on Wednesday 6th March 2019 at 9pm and on BBC iPlayer. We caught up with Tom to find out more about MotherFatherSon and his writing life.
Twenty years of family hurt and betrayal come to a head as the mother, the father and the son gather at a remote rural house near Caden’s rehab facility. Kathryn discovers the truth of the upbringing that Max inflicted on Caden – the creation of a man taught to feel nothing. She realizes how profoundly she failed her son by losing him to Max. This is a chance to fight the battle she lost during Caden’s childhood – emotion against machismo, idealism versus pragmatism. Will the family fight take the world stage?
With no prospect of returning to the role he’d spent his life being groomed for, Caden has nothing to live for. He spirals downwards until his equally unhinged companion Orla makes a potentially devastating suggestion.
Kathryn reconnects with the volatile Scott, with whom she’d established an intense connection at the homeless shelter. Max weighs the political candidates as the general election looms – but has his judgement been impaired by his son’s illness?
When Kathryn learns some of Max’s dark secrets, she too has a fateful decision to make.
Caden has been moved into a cutting-edge military rehabilitation facility. Kathryn dedicates herself full time to her son’s rehabilitation, making up for the years she missed when Caden was a child. As Caden painstakingly relearns basic skills, growing up for a second time, he falls for a brilliant and damaged military intelligence agent, Orla. Meanwhile, Max’s enemies are beginning to circle, sensing that his British media empire may be weakening. It is time for a decision on Caden’s future.
