Storyline

Laura is a smart and dedicated teacher, not long out of a relationship and unsure about getting back on the dating scene. Andrew is a renowned surgeon whose son is a pupil at Laura's school. An initial attraction leads to a date, but neither fully realizes the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in the tense and gripping thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth. Are there really two sides to every story?

Worth a binge watch
18 April 2020 | by ynysygwas-625-623284See all my reviews

I watched the first episode of this and some of the second, thought it wasn't worth wasting more of my time.

Then I saw they made a second series. How did they spin it out to even the first six episodes let alone make a second series?

So, intrigued, I watched it 'again'. All 12 episodes over a three night mini binge watch.

I fully understand the bad reviews. I'd have said much the same when I abandoned watching it after one and a bit episodes. However, it has proved to be a bit like a jigsaw puzzle. You get lots of flashbacks giving little bits and pieces of what happened but you only really get the full picture at the end.

Some might find the constant flashbacks in season 2 hard work. I kept having to rewind as I'd missed something. It will need concentration or you might miss some of the plot.

See if you can spot Doctor Who, Jo Martin, in a brief appearance!
