Review

There’s no swinging yet in this Dutch drama, which starts on Channel 4 before the entire series becomes available on All 4. The first, establishing episode feels very much like a sinister Brookside as couple Peter and Eva, expecting their first baby, decide to buy their dream house on an ugly estate.

The neighbours are a nosey, weird bunch – there’s a bullying bent cop and his comely fitness-instructor wife and a peeping tom – who take every opportunity to gawp. But Eva and Peter have more important things to worry about as they prepare for the birth of their baby.

But this is a place of secrets and jealousy and Peter and Eva won’t remain outsiders for long.

Summary

Music journalist Peter and his teacher girlfriend Eva buy a house on the outskirts of Amsterdam. Their new neighbours, police detective Steef and personal trainer Rebecca, are pleased about the arrival of the attractive young couple as they don't get on well with their other neighbours. However, just before Peter and Eva are due to move in, events overtake them. Dutch drama, starring Daan Schuurmans, Bracha van Doesburgh, Thijs Romer, Katja Romer-Schuurman, Stefan de Walle and Anneke Blok. In Dutch with English subtitles.
