Three best friends are brought closer together by tragedy in Kay Mellor's new drama

Added on

  • DRAMA Girlfriends, 9pm, ITV

    Many of the storylines in Kay Mellor's latest creation will be recognisable – ageism and sexism in the workplace, childcare troubles, parents with deteriorating health – but others are a little more farfetched. When Linda’s husband goes missing on a cruise ship, her two lifelong best friends (Zoë Wanamaker and Miranda Richardson) jump to her side, despite having drifted apart over the years. Girlfriends won’t be the drama on everybody’s lips, but it’s a welcome reminder of the power and persistence of female friendship.
