Storyline

School teacher Chris Bevan is a dutiful husband to his dull wife, Josie, and ingrate daughters. His best friend knows Chris' heart always belonged to Marian, his vibrant, flippant fiancée, who mysteriously disappeared years ago. Suddenly he sees her in a shop and can't help following her. He gives up as she has a new identity, as wife of plumber Bernie Sullivan. Bernie's real passion is Houdini-era 'real' magic, while in fact she's his terrified captive, forced to replace his late assistant. Furthermore one of Bevan's daughters has a phone-relationship he forbids, deeming it dangerous on principle, ignoring this is real and ties in to Marian's plight. Written by KGF Vissers

Excellent disturbing thriller
7 September 2005 | by (Hampshire, UK) – See all my reviews

This two-part programme centres around a middle-aged family man who crosses paths with a former girlfriend whom he hasn't seen since their brief fling 15 years ago, when she disappeared from his life without saying a word.

When he first met her she was vibrant and fun to be around, now she is a bundle of nerves, never looking anyone in the eye and extremely pale. He can't believe this is the same person and he tries to make contact with her again using his contacts at the school where he works.

He soon discovers that she is living a terrible life with a partner that is not what he seems outside his home, and that his quest to find out about his old girlfriend is threatening his own family.

This is a gripping story that is extremely unsettling and will have you hooked from the very start.
