To play Claire, Ann Marie Duff was assigned a personal trainer to get her up to peak fitness. The character is an athlete which is part of her addiction. See more »
Weak plot, slower than a wet weekend in Whitby, with a poor script. 3 down 1 to go and not sure I can be bothered. The main character, whose name actually now escapes me, is annoying and dreary. This could be so much better. The plot has no complexity, the characters have no depth and there is nothing to grip the viewer. It's clear that there is something deeply troubling the main character and the sexual history between the two is as cliché as it gets, but it's in no way convincing. Something like Silent Witness manages to do week after week, with almost perfection, what this is trying to do on it's own. Sorry, BBC. Must try harder.
