Storyline

Leeds, 1950s, Betty (Billie Piper) is a married mother whose life is changed forever after falling hopelessly in love with her charismatic neighbour, "Craze" (Theo James). Feeling trapped inside her conventional marriage, she abandons herself to a passion she never before dared believe possible. She finally finds the courage to leave her husband Donald (Joe Armstrong) after receiving a letter from Craze, asking her to meet him at a particular place in order to finally be together.

After such discovery, full of anger and jealousy, she takes Craze's gun and shoots him at the fairground where he's working. When Betty finds out Craze is dead, she is devastated, having no other choice but carry on with her life with Donald.

What a debut from Theo James!
2 January 2021 | by Britsahil123See all my reviews

I looked it up to see the earlier works of Theo James and didn't realise it was his debut. Perfect Sunday night drama from BBC based on a true story. I loved both parts, great story brought to life by the great cast. Theo James had great screen presence right from the start of his career!
