    The trailer for this caught my eye alright. Decent cast and I'm always up for a whodunnit.

    It looks a lot more stylish than some of the more recent RTE dramas too.

    I'll be tuning in.

    'Smother' is a claustrophobic whodunnit pitched as a homegrown blend of 'Big Little Lies' and Scandi Noir.

    It stars Dervla Kirwan (The Stranger, White Dragon) as the matriarch of a wealthy family with many skeletons in many closets.

    Kirwan plays Val Ahern - a devoted mother who is determined to protect her family and particularly her three daughters Jenny, Anna, and Grace, at any cost.

    Jenny is a heavily pregnant single doctor, unsure of the choices she has made, played by Niamh Walsh (Good Omens, Jamestown).

    Grace, played by Seána Kerslake (Can't Cope, Won’t Cope, The Hole in the Ground), is an angry but fragile young woman struggling with mental health issues.

    Anna is a devoted stepmother to two teenage boys, whose birth mother has recently reappeared on the scene, played by Gemma-Leah Devereux (Judy, The Tudors).

    When Val Ahern’s husband Denis, played by Stuart Graham (The Cure, Hunger), is found dead at a foot of a cliff close to their home the morning after a family party, Val begins to interrogate the events that unfolded the night before.

    Val explores Denis’s relationships with his children, stepchildren, and his siblings in order to find out who might have been responsible for his brutal, shocking death.

    The cast also includes Thomas Levin (Borgen), Hilary Rose (The Young Offenders) and Justine Mitchell (Cheat).

    'Smother' begins on RTÉ One Sunday, March 7 at 9.30 pm.

    The utter middle classness of this is already annoying me!

    I can remember a similar one-off drama from around 2007 where some D4 Socialite is raped by David O'Hara's character (O'Hara played the Irish lad in Braveheart. Very few ordinary people can relate to even the most terrible events occurring to these type of characters.

    That said, I liked 'What Richard did'. Another gem by Lenny Abrahamson.

    It's great watching all these places I recognize, I think I was in 1 of the houses.

    There's no D reg'd range rover squad in Clare
