A single, unfamiliar blond hair on her husband’s scarf rends beloved GP Gemma Foster’s comfortable world apart. She rips the stuffing from her own life as suspicion twists and burns. Bafta winner Suranne Jones is perfect as Gemma in Mike Bartlett’s hit 2015 domestic drama. Every emotion plays right across her face. We watch as corrosive thoughts turn Gemma from a loving wife to a woman who starts to lose her grip on what makes her who she is.
Her property-developer husband Simon (Bertie Carvel) is expansive and friendly. But maybe too friendly to female friends and acquaintances? We don’t know, and neither does Gemma. But she is determined to find out. A new series is coming shortly to BBC1.
Suranne Jones stars as GP Gemma Foster, a woman seemingly in control of her life and her job, until her world is suddenly turned upside down. Gemma suspects her husband of having an affair and throws herself into an investigation that will propel her, her family and even some of her patients into chaos, as she uncovers secrets that shock her to the core.
