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.

Annoyingly good for a cliché romcom
8 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

If you've ever had to commute to London, you'll know that: conversations are sparse, fat people forget how fat they are and newspapers seem to make more noise at 7am! The 7.39 brings all this together but showing through commuter rage, friendships can be made. Many viewers have complained it's not realistic making such a connection this way, but let's not forget it started with a dispute! As for other complaints such as the train carriage was too empty, just remember you have to fit a whole camera crew onto the train and some trains do not actually allow bikes during peak times! Part one allows us to see how the friendship between Sally and Karl develops and just how quickly it leads to something more dangerous. The most artistic aspect of the first half of this drama is how the director shows the audience just how unaware the Sally and Karl are actually falling for each other.

In the beginning of part two, we see the aftermath of Sally and Karl's affair which out of the whole series, is the most realistic scenes we'll see.

Much recommend and but have a tissue to hand!
