Review

A woman living in a seaside town complains of rape and must face the pain and humiliation of a police inquiry. Yes, it sounds just like the last series of Broadchurch, but it isn’t.

Liar is a new thriller from The Missing’s Jack and Harry Williams. Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd are teacher Laura and surgeon Andrew. She’s just split up with her boyfriend and he’s a widower.

They go on a date but, for Laura, the night ends in a fog of terror and chaos. She knows she’s been raped but Andrew convincingly swears blind the sex was consensual. As this is a Williams’ brothers story, it’s layered with lies and secrets.

Summary

Recently single teacher Laura Nielson is set up with Andrew Earlham, a widowed surgeon and the father of one of her students. The two enjoy a first date, but the next day rumours and accusations begin to circulate and the two find themselves entangled in a web of deceit and confusion. Thriller, starring Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd, with Shelley Conn, Zoe Tapper and Warren Brown.
