TONY is a UK drama about a serial killer who lives on a rundown housing estate.

Language

There is repeated use of very strong language ('c**t'), as well as frequent strong language ('f**k').

Violence

In one scene, a man is suffocated to death when a plastic bag is placed over his head, taped to his neck and held in place before he eventually dies. In another scene, a man is struck on the head with a hammer.

Drugs

In one scene, two men smoke heroin off tin foil. In another scene, a man snorts cocaine. There are also some scenes of marijuana smoking.

There are also some grisly scenes in which internal organs are extracted from murder victims, a corpse is propped up in bed alongside the killer, and there are some scenes featuring severed limbs.
