Brenda Blethyn and Alun Armstrong star alongside Julie Graham, Gaynor Faye, Liz Smith and Norman Wisdom in Between The Sheets. Written and created by Bafta award winning writer Kay Mellor, Between The Sheets is a no-holds barred, frank exploration about sex in the 21st century.
The series explores the lives of couples who have turned to sex therapy in attempt to solve the problems in their relationships. Taking an honest and humorous look at the sexual problems of the characters involved, the series opens a Pandora’s box by examining why we are attracted to people we shouldn’t be and asks the question – what makes one person turn us on, when others can leave us cold?
Self-made man, Peter (Alun Armstrong) and Hazel Delany (Brenda Blethyn) seem to have the perfect marriage, but appearances can be deceptive. Elsewhere, Peter and Hazel’s son Simon (James Thornton) finds himself drawn to Georgia Lovett (Gaynor Faye), the hostess at one of his father’s lap-dancing bars – but secrets threaten to tear their relationship apart.
Meanwhile, Alona Cunningham (Julie Graham) has her own problems to deal with when her partner Paul Andrews (Richard Armitage), a probation officer, is investigated about his relationship with one of his clients. Alona is torn as to whether she should believe Paul’s version of events or trust her gut instinct.
