Patrick Melrose (Benedict Cumberbatch) - aristocratic and incredibly witty playboy, who grew up in a rich family. As a child, Patrick suffered a psychological trauma: the boy suffered from the harsh treatment of his father (Hugo Weaving) and the indifference of the mother who looked at her husband's behavior. Adult Melrose faced alcoholism, drug addiction, but eventually he was completely cured. It is assumed that "Melrose" will become a true television saga, based on the cycle of novels of Edward St. Aubin. Each of the five books of Saint-Aubin will be dedicated to one episode, the action will unfold in France in the 1960s, New York in the 1980s and Britain in the early 2000s. Scenarios of all the series were written by David Nicholls ("Far from the distraught crowd", "One day"), directed by Edward Berger ("Under suspicion," "Germany 83").
