Keeping Faith series 3 promises to be every bit as triumphant as the first two series if the BBC’s press pack is anything to go
The BBC press pack has plenty of rich detail, summarising the show so far. The theme for Keeping Faith series 3 is simple — who is Faith? Series 1 was about who is Evan as Eve Myles’s Faith unravelled her husbands duplicitous web of lies and series 2 asked how will Eve survive the betrayal? It’s a brooding, powerful show in which Myles produces a breathtaking performance, supported by Bradley Freegard as Evan Howells and Mark Lewis Jones as Steve Baldini.
Apart from the personal issues, the series also concerns itself with Faith’s latest legal case:
…13 year-old Osian Taylor, who has been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour. His father and consultant can’t agree on whether or not to operate due to the inordinately high risk, so there’s an emergency application to court, seeking a ‘specific issue’ order under The Children Act. Faith’s fight for justice and the child’s right to choose takes her to the High Court of Justice in London, where ghosts from the past emerge.
At the centre of the closing series lurks an unexpected threat to Faith and every member of her family, one that pushes her further than ever before to risk everything in an attempt to save her family and herself. But at what cost?
The additional cast for this series includes Celia Imrie (Victoria Wood: As Seen On TV, Dinnerladies, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Matthew Aubrey (Made in Dagenham, The Gospel Of Us), Dame Sian Phillips, and presenter and actor Shaun Fletcher.
