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?

User Reviews

Exhilarating viewing.
17 December 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I am stunned to see so many negative reviews, when you look at viewing figures for this show the opinion of the General Public clearly did not share such a negative view, the show ended with more viewers then it started with.

Rape must be one of the most henous crimes of all, particularly in light of the many stories worldwide. A victim asking the question why me, and why should the perpetrator be allowed to get away with it.

Ioan Gruffudd and joanne froggatt are sensational throughout, such is the quality of the acting, and the writing that your sympathies switch from one character to another's, as does your anger.

I think it got better as it went on, the Fifth part had me on the edge of my seat, the concluding episode also so well done, leaving us all desperate for Series Two.

Bravo 9/10
