    Episodes & News

The Children is a three-part 2008 drama miniseries written by Lucy Gannon and produced for ITV. It stars Lesley Sharp, Geraldine Somerville and Kevin Whately, and premiered on ITV at 9pm on Monday 1 September 2008. The plot centred around the dysfunctional lives of Cameron, Sue and Sue's daughter, Emily,. Sue's ex-husband was DJ Paul and his new girlfriend Natasha, and Cameron's ex-wife Anne and their son Jack. The main plot is surrounding the family life at home living as a step family, and is told in a backwards flashback mode. Arguments and tension rise throughout the 3 episodes and eventually following her strange and naughty behaviour, little Emily is killed. Any one of the adults could have been responsible and were placed at the scene. As the show reaches its climax, Cameron is shown hitting Emily and accidentally smashing her through a glass patio door, however there is a twist to the tale as all the suspects are then seen killing her one by one, all except one of them. The show's ending, which showed Natasha crying and sobbing "I'm sorry," was panned by critics, due to the fact viewers were not shown how or indeed why Natasha killed her.
