Storyline

After fighting for a seat on their morning commute, Sally and Carl begin talking and suddenly their daily train journey becomes a lot more interesting. Carl is happily married, Sally's engaged - where's the harm? Yet they find themselves increasingly drawn to each other, and as their friendship grows to flirtation they refuse to admit - to each other or themselves - that a line might be crossed. The consequences of discovery will be life-changing, catastrophic perhaps, and yet they can't help falling in love. A romantic drama for grown-ups, The 7.39 is charged, funny, moving and sexy.

Catch the early train
22 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The 7:39 was shown over two nights and is a modern reworking of Brief Encounter which is was itself was re-jigged in 1984 as 'Falling in Love' and starred Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep.

David Morrissey and Sheridan Smith meet during an early commute to London where they argue over a seat but in subsequent encounters during the morning rush hour form a friendship and later have a steamy affair.

David Morrissey is the middle aged, middle management worker in commercial property with a horrible boss, hating the daily grind of going and coming back from work. He is married to Olivia Coleman, has two teenage children, one about to go to university and finds that for the first time in years he has a buzz and a spring in his step.

Sheridan Smith is a personal trainer engaged to get married but unsure as to whether to commit and this affair with an older man seems to provide a pleasant diversion.

Of course we have the predictable consequences with Morrissey not performing in his job effectively and getting fired, Coleman finding out about the affair and finally being confronted by Smith's boyfriend.

An enjoyable drama, light on its feed, not heavy handed. The work place scenes were so true to life with the actor playing Morrissey's boss nailing the part of the slimy, douche-bag.

Just a shame the serial was bit by the numbers.
