Hidden

2019

The 2nd series of the Welsh television drama, Hidden (2019) has a foster child in the background.

There are 3 young people involved in 2 murders in the series but it is not the teenager who was in foster care.

Instead, the 3 young people come from single parent families (in 1 the violent father has recently died).

While it is a relief that creators Mark Andrew & Ed Talfan aren't perpetuating stereotypes of kids in care, it is a concern that they are impugning young people from financially impoverished backgrounds and non-nuclear families.
