So many suspects and witnesses, in so many smart, tidy, sun-bright suburban kitchens, the backdrops to
’s crumbling marriages.
Like that of brisk, brittle Cath Atwood (Sarah Parish), who busies herself organising a beach football match-cum-picnic to bring the torn community together. Though you can tell by the arrangement of detective Ellie Miller’s features that she thinks it’s a tasteless idea. And Cath’s reaction to a question about her relationship with husband Jim rocks both Ellie and Alec Hardy.
As Chris Chibnall’s story builds remorselessly, pulling at the tension, he throws in a new suspect, a devious creep called Aaron Mayford (Horrible Histories’ Jim Howick). As for rape survivor Trish (Julie Hesmondhalgh), she visits the crime scene with Ellie and Alec.
When threads of memory return and she remembers her pre-attack self, Trish utters a sentence filled with a cargo of sadness: “I was so happy that night…”
Trish returns to the scene of the crime in the hope it will prompt her to remember something more about the attack, while DC Katie Harford thinks she has a strong lead when she discovers a new suspect who doesn't have an alibi. Cath reveals interesting new information about the night of her party, while a match is made for the male DNA found on Trish. An unknown woman walks into the police station - and delivers some devastating new information when interviewed by Ellie and Hardy. Crime drama, starring David Tennant, Olivia Colman and Julie Hesmondhalgh.
