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.

The most predictable program ever..
22 September 2020 | by shanieandrewsSee all my reviews

I'm a big fan of all of the main actors in this.. which is why I'm even more disappointed with this series.. I do not need to put any spoilers in this.. as after 5 minutes in, you can guess each stage as it goes along..
