Cat Hogan returns to West Meath upon her mother's sudden death - she has an accident at home and died (or was it an accident?). Blood is about old secrets, older betrayals, mind games and the lies family tell each other.
This three part dramatisation focuses on recent tragedies, notably the killing of Amelie de la Grange back in 2004. It feels at times like a documentary, as it focuses more so on the telling of the story, the procedures, obstacles and facts of the case, never at any point does it deliver any moments of drama, nor offer up any sensationalism of the crimes. Personally I think it could have been delivered over two episodes, the second part is very padded out, and lacks any true impact. Saying that it's a sensitive telling of a harrowing case. Martin Clunes is fantastic as the unshakeable Colin Sutton, it's good that Sutton had involvement in the telling of the story.
I am so glad that people can make a TV show like this in a way that makes you feel like you've been informed as opposed to cheaply shocked.
Well made drama. 8/10
