A huge fault line has opened up in Rosie and Ben’s family as terrible, dark suspicions settle upon the household. In the concluding episode of this tight, riveting little thriller the couple (Hermione Norris and Martin Clunes, both superb) are forced to examine their marriage and their relationships with their teenage children as the fallout from the murder of a schoolgirl begins to suffocate them all.
“This is family, Rosie, our family!” yells Ben as he tries to convince his wife to think the unthinkable and to act against her every instinct as a mother. Such is the sheer excellence of the writing, acting and directing, you will feel acutely sorry for everyone involved.
Concluding the two-part drama, starring Hermione Norris, Martin Clunes, Paul McGann and Alexander Arnold. In the aftermath of the murder and the discovery of the bloodstained trainers, Rosie's distress starts to affect her family life and cracks begin to form. Meanwhile, David has learnt their son Jamie has been mixing with violent dropout Sean and fears he may have fallen under his influence.
