Kieran is off to university in the final episode of the new series of Moving On, created by multi-award winning writer Jimmy McGovern.
He's the youngest child of Ann and John, and is getting the opportunity they never had. When they struggle to keep in touch with Kieran, they assume he's out partying – but in reality, Kieran's struggling with depression.
When Kieran's girlfriend, Amy, finds him unconscious on the floor with a bottle of pills, he tries to shrug it off and makes her promise not to tell his parents. Then Kieran has a panic attack, and when Ann and John rush to see him they are shocked by the state they find him in. The truth comes out about the overdose and they take him home.
The family doctor gives Kieran a prescription for anti-depressants but he doesn't want to take them and Ann and John discover the road to recovery is far from straightforward. Eventually, solace in nature fosters an unlikely alliance as Ann, John and Keiran finally start to find a way out of their troubles.
Kieran is played by Joe Dempsie, Ann by Fay Ripley, John by Ben Daniels and Amy by Jo Woodcock.

Prince revolutionised the perception of black music in the Eighties with worldwide hits such as 1999 and Kiss. He became a global sensation with the Oscar-winning movie Purple Rain in 1984, embarking on an incredible journey of musical self-discovery. From the psychedelic Around The World In A Day to his masterpiece album Sign O' The Times and experiments with hip hop and jazz, Prince remains one of the most ambitious and prolific songwriters of his generation.
He tested the boundaries of taste and decency with explicit sexual lyrics and stage shows and in the Nineties fought for ownership of his name and control of his music. Still in demand as one of the most flamboyant live performers around, Prince remains a controversial and elusive creative force.
Contributors include: Revolution guitarist Dez Dickerson; Paisley Park label president Alan Leeds; hip hop legend Chuck D; and pop mastermind and UK soul star Beverley Knight.
