Created by Chris Lang, A Mother’s Son picks up shortly after a teenage schoolgirl is found murdered in the woods near a local town in Suffolk. The news rips through the heart of the whole community, and that of mother of two Rosie Haleton who discovers damning evidence that could be connected to the heinous crime. Recently remarried, Rosie lives with her two children Jamie and Olivia, husband Ben Harley and his children from a previous marriage, Jessica and Rob. As the newly formed family settle into daily life living together under one roof, Rosie begins to suspect she may be sharing her home with a killer when she finds a pair of blood-splattered trainers hidden under her son Jamie’s bed. At first Rosie tries to dismiss her suspicions believing them too incomprehensible to be true. Could her teenage boy be involved in murder? The two-part drama was produced by ITV Studios and stars Martin Clunes (Doc Martin), Hermione Norris (Spooks), Paul McGann (Luther) and Alexander Arnold (Skins).
