THE CARER is a drama about the relationship between a reclusive older actor and his young carer who longs for an acting career.
There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), in addition to use of strong language, including 'f**k'. Milder terms include 'bugger', 'shit', 'bollocks', 'sodding' and 'bastard'.
There are references to suicide: in one scene, a terminally ill character jokingly asks someone to help him end his life; elsewhere, another character recalls having suicidal thoughts in her younger days.
There are also some sex references, such as when a male character briefly describes the shape of a woman's breasts.
