The series also stars Gemma Jones (Gentleman Jack, Unforgotten) and Kenneth Cranham (Hatton Garden, Bancroft) as Minnie and Gerry, Alice’s in-laws. Alongside the core cast is Isabella Pappas (Paranoid) as Alice and Harry’s 16-year-old daughter Charlotte, Sharon Rooney (The Capture, No Offence) as Harry’s sister Nicola, and Rhashan Stone (Keeping Faith, Agatha Raisin) as mortuary worker Nathan Johnston.
