Smother S1Watch all of it now
Blood runs deep, but secrets run deeper in the new Irish BBC drama-thriller Smother.
When Val Ahern’s husband Denis is found dead the morning after a family party, Val begins to interrogate the events that unfolded the night before, but the deeper she delves into her family’s secrets the more she realises how her late husband’s controlling, manipulative behaviour had a deep effect on each member of the family… and could have led to his death.
Already renewed for a second season, The Guardian says this “Maeve Binchy-esque thriller is entirely addictive”.
Dervla Kirwan won a 2021 Irish Film and Television Award (IFTA) for Best Actress – Drama, with the series nominated for a further 10 IFTAs, including Best Drama
