Are any of our UK readers currently watching Russell Tovey's new new show Flesh and Blood? I think it's airing right now? It's the one where Imelda Staunton plays a widow who starts dating and her kids, including Russ here, don't take it easy. Coming off of his terrific (and terrifically upsetting) sci-fi and politically tinged series Years and Years with Queer as Folk creator Russell T. Davies -- which just hit DVD this week and which I very much recommend checking out if you missed it when it aired -- we're here for whatever he does.
Not that that's exactly a new development, given our history stretches back some time. I never watched Being Human, the show that gave him his career, so I think it was maybe the very fun horror movie Grabbers in 2012 where I finally paid attention to him? And then came Looking a few years later and forget about it. Anyway there's a new chat with him over here about all this that includes this photo-shoot, the latter of which I'll share after the jump...
i've only seen the ad for 'flesh and blood' but it appears imelda staunton is the gossipy neighbour and francesca annis is the sexed-up mum [which makes more sense]
interweb tells me russ is playing a straight [boooo] personal trainer [yay!]
What a swoonworthy photoshoot. 🥰
Par3182 is correct - Imelda Staunton is the neighbour and Francesca Annis is the Mother. It's a 4-episode drama, which I enjoyed but the ending let it down … so obviously geared towards a second series. Russell Tovey does play straight, but is still sexy as hell, but an irritating character in this show.

History Boys was the first I saw of him. so British he is. I still miss Looking, he was great especially in the film, but what a perfect ending.
