We reach boiling point.

It is finally the evening of Vivien's seventieth birthday party, all of her friends and family is there, it's also where we learn the identity of the victim.

It's been so clever, normally you watch a drama serial and wait until the end to find out who the murderer is, or the guilty party, the refreshing and original change up here was that you wait to find out who the victim is.

I have thoroughly enjoyed it, I was completely off track with regards the outcome. The acting has been superb, they are all wonderful, Imelda Staunton does dazzle though, as she so often does.

It was almost like the final episode of Doctor Foster Series 1, the big scene is played out, and it's of course a shocker, and the reason you've watched it right through. It does not disappoint.

They've left the ending as such that there is a possibility of a return, I hope they don't, it would somehow spoil it.

Best of the series. 9/10
