Pick of the Day
The End, 10.00pm, Sky Atlantic & NOW TV
Harriet Walter and Frances O'Connor star in this new drama about three generations of a family with separate but intersecting obsessions, who are trying to figure out how to die with dignity, live with none and make it count.
O’Connor plays Dr Kate Brennan, an Australian-based specialist in palliative care. Euthanasia is a hot-button topic in Kate’s field of work, and she is passionate in her opposition. On the other side of the world, Kate’s mother Edie Henley (Walter) feels just as strongly about her right to die.
After she attempts to take her own life, Kate has little choice but to ship her out from England and deposit her in a nearby retirement village in the Gold Coast - Edie’s worst nightmare.
