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?

User Reviews

 
Good TV series, great acting.
10 February 2020 | by pgtraceySee all my reviews

I have seen a number of negative reviews, some even complaining about Joanne Froggatt's "whining and whinging", seriously. Without spoiling it, her character (not Joanne herself) may just have good reason!

Anyway, the acting is spot on, especially the 2 leads. There are enough twists to keep you guessing, and the ending begs a follow up, which I believe is coming soon.
