It's in the blood
Phillip Murphy is a family man. He worships his old mum; he takes care of his siblings who help run his business empire in Southend; he dotes on his young sons who will one day take over the reins.
And then there's his wife and saviour Christine, who he loves with a vengeance. To Phillip Murphy, family is everything. Christine has always understood this about her husband; it was one of the things that first attracted her to him. But there is another side of Phillip, and it's a side he never wanted his wife to see. Though, even if she did, could she do anything but stand by him? Because Phillip has rules, and he expects loyalty from his nearest and dearest. Once you're in the family, you're in it for life.
