Flesh And Blood viewers insist ‘nosy’ neighbour Imelda Staunton torched protagonist’s car

0


Flesh and Blood viewers have eagerly offered their suggestions for who torched Vivien’s car in the second episode – and most fingers are pointing to ‘creepy’ neighbour Mary.

The series, which jumps between flashbacks and present day, began on Monday night with a scene showing a body bag being removed from a home by police, setting up all the characters as the potential attackers or victim. 

And as the ITV drama continued last night, the widow-of-18 months (played by Francesca Annis) was gifted a flashy vehicle from her new beau Mark (Stephen Rea).

But the classic car suddenly went up in flames as the couple sat together with her three adult children on the nearby beach, shortly after Vivien and Mark announced they had married during a trip to Gibraltar.

Mark spotted the vehicle was on fire as he walked back to Vivien’s house and shouted at everyone to get back before it exploded, and despite their neighbour Mary’s (Imelda Staunton) shocked face, she was picked as the front runner of possible suspects by fans.

One viewer tweeted: ‘Oh wow, I wonder who set the car on fire… Does her name rhyme with Scary by any chance?’

Another person wrote: ‘Getting intriguing. It definitely wasn’t any of the children who torched the car.

‘The neighbour is the one to watch. Thought she would be a sideline character but you don’t give a small part to Imelda Staunton.’

In a police interview, Vivien’s daughter Natalie (Lydia Leonard) insisted it was a group of youngsters who committed the crime, even though the family didn’t notice any strangers hanging around.

The characters – which also include siblings Jake (Russell Tovey) and Helen (Claudie Blakley) – are part of a police investigation after the four-part series opened on Monday with a shot of a ‘body in a bag’ – setting them all up as both a potential victim or attacker.

But showrunner Sarah Williams confirmed the victim isn’t actually dead, telling Metro: ‘It’s not a body bag.’

Most viewers believe Mary is the villain of drama, yet some have suggested the ‘nosy’ neighbour could be working with Vivien’s new man Mark to bring down the family.   

One viewer said: ‘Nah I’m right Mary and Mark are in this plot together,’ as another added: ‘Mary and Mark definitely have a connection in some way judging by the shared stares!’

The pensioner appeared horrified when it was revealed that Vivien had secretly remarried, with the youngest child Natalie admitting: ‘Yes, they got married in Gibraltar.’

Seeing the look of shock on Mary’s face, Natalie added: ‘I know, we all feel the same. Do you mind keeping an eye on her? We’re all a bit concerned it’s happened so fast.’ 

Mary then asked: ‘Natalie, I’m just wondering, what did his first wife die of?’ with fans suggesting she was purposely sparking suspicious. 

One person tweeted: ‘Mary is planting seeds of doubt in the children’s head so it looks like they all planned it together to murder him.’ 

ITV's Flesh and Blood impressed viewers with its 'gripping' premiere that opened with someone in a body bag and established almost every character as a possible victim - and suspect.
