Synopsis:
"Patrick Melrose" is a new kind of family saga which takes a scathing and sardonic view of the upper-classes, shining an unforgiving light on the privilege, greed, cruelty and vulnerabilities that lie within their ranks. Played to perfection by Benedict Cumberbatch, Patrick himself is many things: an aristocratic addict, a rakish and outrageously funny playboy, but he is also a man living as a victim of the sins of his parents (Hugo Weaving and Jennifer Jason Leigh). Based on the celebrated novels by Edward St.
Aubyn, this intelligent, beautifully told series, follows Patrick as he embarks on a harrowing yet humorous decades-spanning odyssey to come to terms with the effects of childhood trauma.

Riveting - Patrick Melrose review by CW

Spoiler Alert
12/10/2018

Shocking, tragic, hilarious, beautifully done. It felt as though the entire cast loved playing their roles. Benedict Cumberbatch gets to alternate between elegant, sophisticated, witty and totally out of control drug and alcohol fuelled addict. More graphic than scenes in Trainspotting. The acting, directing and camera work make you feel as though you were experiencing the highs, the crashes, the withdrawal. Heartbreaking scenes of a tortured young boy, Patrick as a child. Drug addiction not glamorised, but rather portrayed in all its horror. Based on true stories by author. Compelling. I raced through the episodes.

I gave up 20 mins into series 1.Utterly dark and depressing.No chemistry between the leads and not remotely funny ( in an ironic way). I gave up the battle.Horrible.
