Summary

Two boys out sledging in their local park find the body of an old woman in the snow. Who is she? How did she come to be there?

Over 10 episodes, this compelling series moves backwards and forwards in time to reveal the chain of events that led her to that point. We meet members of her family, her friends and the people she has encountered, all of whom provide clues to help us put the puzzle together. From the police and paramedics to the nurses and residents in an old people's home, each character has their own relationships and circumstances - and on our journey to understanding the old woman's story, we hear theirs too, combining to form a brilliant kaleidoscope of modern life and love.

Christine Bottomley, Marcia Warren, Neil Dudgeon, Amelia Bullmore and John Rowe are among the stars in Katie Hims' funny, poignant drama.

Directed by Mary Peate.

A moving and compelling mystery.

I expected a lot from this drama; it was written by Katie Hims after all, and she is well-known for being a fantastic writer. I got more than I bargained for with this one though; the acting was fantastic, and the story gripping. I laughed and wept, and the ending took my breath away. This is well worth a listen.
