Finding Alice spoilers: Episode One

An all star line up joins award-winning actress Keeley Hawes in ITV’s new contemporary drama Finding Alice. The six-part drama created by Roger Goldby, Keeley Hawes and Simon Nye, and written by Roger and Simon focuses on Alice’s honest, raw, blackly comic journey of grief, love and life after the death of her partner Harry.

Episode 1

For Alice (Keeley Hawes), Harry (Jason Merrells) and their daughter, Charlotte (Isabella Pappas), moving into their new home should have been a dream come true. But it quickly turns into a nightmare when Alice discovers Harry dead at the bottom of the stairs. Harry designed the smart house, so it’s weird and wonderful, and one more disorientation for Alice on top of her sense of loss and abandonment. Alice’s beloved partner is no more, and now she can’t find the fridge. 

Family should be a source of comfort, but Harry’s parents, Minnie (Gemma Jones) and Gerry (Kenneth Cranham), keep popping round uninvited. Whilst Alice’s own parents, Roger (Nigel Havers) and Sarah (Joanna Lumley), only seem to add to her list of problems. 

With Harry gone and Alice struggling to cope, Charlotte is forced to bottle up her grief and be the responsible one. Especially when the police turn up asking questions about the night that Harry died. To make matters worse, more unexpected visitors start knocking on Alice’s door, and she begins to realise that Harry’s business debt wasn’t the only secret he kept hidden from her.
