Sister's Keeper

Series 1 - Episode 6 Sister's Keeper



Have you noticed how nobody comes calling on the Sanders household? Apart from Morgan’s luckless boyfriend, people simply don’t come to the door. Where are their friends and neighbours? By now, surely, a few outsiders would have stumbled on the whole family-held-at-gunpoint scenario? No?

Now, finally, someone does drop by unannounced – Ellen’s sister Lauren from out of town. She’s played by the excellent Nina Arianda, who does a fine job with what turns into a really quite disturbing subplot laced with dark implications.

Meanwhile, various other over-stretched storylines twang along. It’s all a bit cartoony, but oddly gripping.


When Ellen's sister Lauren turns up unexpectedly at the Sanders' house intending to stay, Duncan forces the surgeon to find a way of getting rid of her sibling without arousing suspicion. Meanwhile, Kramer helps Sandrine find the money she needs to pay off Victor, and Hoffman makes progress with his investigation into Angela's death.
