Blood: release date and trailer for Channel 5 drama

Channel 5’s upcoming crime drama, Blood, starring Line of Duty‘s Adrian Dunbar will air in a few weeks time, it’s been confirmed…

According to the lengthy press release, “the six-part Blood explores family, memory, and the impact the past can have on the present. Cat Hogan, played by Carolina Main, is an isolated woman on the run from her past, a past she is forced to confront when the sudden ‘accidental’ death of her mother, Mary, played by Ingrid Craigie, draws her back to the family she has spent the last ten years trying to avoid.

“Cat has always been the black sheep of the family and now this uncomfortable reunion awakens sinister demons from the past and shines a suspicious light on her mother’s death. However much she wants to believe her death was innocent, her suspicions start to mount against her father (Dunbar) when she begins to notice discrepancies in his stories.”

“Set over the week following Mary’s death, Cat tries to uncover the truth, looking to the past to understand the present. The audience will constantly question whether Cat is paranoid or has in fact discovered a terrible truth about her father. Nothing and no one can be taken at face value. In Blood, the ‘truth’ depends on who you ask.”

Blood, scripted by Sophie Petzal and directed by Lisa Mulcahy and Hannah Quinn, will also star Diarmuid Noyes, Gráinne Keenan, Cillian Ó Gairbhí and Mark O’Regan.

It will start on Monday 19th November at 9pm with a double bill premiere.  The remaining four episodes will air on weekdays in the 9pm time slot, with the finale airing on Friday 23rd November.
