Storyline

Married with two grown-up children, Yvonne Carmichael (Emily Watson) lives a contented, conventional suburban life. But her world spirals into chaos, when a chance encounter leads to an impulsive and passionate affair with a charismatic stranger (Ben Chaplin). Despite all her careful plans to keep her home life and career safe and separate from her affair, fantasy and reality soon begin to overlap and everything she values is put at risk, as a life-changing act of violence leads to a Crown Court trial. Written by BBC Media Centre

Brilliant. Absolutely one of the best series l have seen in ages. Trouble with watching these high caliber shows is that other shows l watch after doesn't compare. Very few far and between. I just loved it. Excellent writing, extremely talented cast. Highly recommend.
