Storyline

Genetecist Yvonne Carmichael is approached by a stranger who is impressed by her speech to a Commons select committee and with whom she finds herself having anonymous sex in a broom cupboard - a fact she obviously keeps from husband Gary. Nonetheless she is excited by experience and, suspecting Gary of having sex with his research assistant Rosa, continues the purely carnal affair, largely in public places where they could risk detection, such as Apple Tree Yard with its CCTV. However colleague George Selway finds out and lets Yvonne know in a very brutal way. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The rape scene was heavily criticised by several victim support organisations, with Rape Crisis England and Wales spokeswoman Katie Russell branding the scene "harrowing". A spokesperson for the series commented that; "The rape scene is an integral part of the leading character's story, faithful to the text of the best-selling novel. The drama goes on to raise important, complex questions about the consequences of sexual violence, exploring the emotional and psychological implications for her. It transmitted in a post watershed slot and there was a warning prior to broadcast and the BBC action line was given at the end for any viewers who were affected." See more »
