First look at Suranne Jones and Bertie Carvel in BBC1 thriller Doctor Foster

The Scott & Bailey actress plays a GP who suspects her husband is having an affair in the five-part drama

Above is the first glimpse of Scott & Bailey and former Coronation Street actress Suranne Jones playing a wronged woman. Or is she wronged?


She will be seen later this year in Doctor Foster, a five-parter for BBC1 about a popular GP who believes her husband is having a secret affair – and our exclusive picture is the first from the new drama.

Beside her character Gemma Foster is actor Bertie Carvel who plays her husband Simon in the thriller penned by The Town writer Mike Bartlett.


Jones said, “It’s about looking at one woman’s story and asking, ‘What if that was me? What would I do in that situation? And the age-old question of why.’ I am very much looking forward to telling Gemma Foster’s story.”
