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.

No Surprises Here, Same Old Standard Fare
20 October 2017 | by desertgypsygirlSee all my reviews

This is a two CD four part mini series, but I had the entire story figured out within the first hour. I knew every plot point, every turning point by then, and I pretty much watched the rest of it to see if I was right.

I was. Any discerning movie watcher would be.

WARNING - NO SPOILERS HERE, BUT I knew Mark's background and "story", who would kill whom and who would be surprised by it, and what legal arguments would be made in court (all the stupid mistakes as the story progressed gave THAT away,) I knew what the verdict would be, and I knew all that before the end of episode one.

But even beyond that, the inciting incident was improbable. I mean, no 52 year old married woman would have sex with a (married) man she'd just met minutes before, whose name she didn't even know, especially not in a closet in an empty museum. By age 52, women no longer can claim the innocence of youth. By then,they know better, and have had enough experience with men to know where it can lead. Directly to TROUBLE, either short term or long term or both.

I did learn something new, though - the physiological reason rape victims don't report. That was interesting.
