To promote the DVD and Blu-ray release of the audacious psychological thriller APPLE TREE YARD, as seen on BBC One, we are giving one lucky reader the chance to win a stay at the luxury One Aldwych hotel, situated close to where the drama unfolds. The prize is for one winner and guest for one weekend night, including breakfast and a three-course a la carte dinner with a bottle of wine in Indigo restaurant, with access to the swimming pool and spa.
Plus, ten runners-up will win a DVD Box Set of APPLE TREE YARD.
Married with two grown-up children, Yvonne Carmichael (Emily Watson), an eminent geneticist, 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.
Yvonne’s downward trajectory is searingly realised; hers is a life ripped apart as the consequence of one, single, spur-of-the-moment decision. A decision any one of us might make.
Based on Louise Doughty’s best-selling novel, APPLE TREE YARD has been adapted for BBC One by BAFTA winning screenplay-writer Amanda Coe (Room At The Top, Life In Squares) and produced by Kudos (River, Broadchurch).
