Series 1 - Episode 5

Monday 12:30am - 1:20am ITV


The underlying message of this odd, disjointed crime thriller is “trust no one”. Because everybody lies to the ill-used Laura (Joanne Froggatt). She’s been raped but the case was dropped and we know her attacker, suave surgeon Andrew (Ioan Gruffudd), is guilty, despite his protestations of innocence.

We know, too, that Laura’s sister Katy (Zoë Tapper) has been having an affair with Laura’s (ex) boyfriend Tom (Warren Brown). So who can she turn to? Meanwhile, Nessa (Shelley Conn), the detective who led the inquiry, has become another victim of the unconscionable Andrew.

It’s surely all calculated to disturb women at the most visceral, personal level, and in that Liar has achieved its objective.


Laura's resolve to bring Andrew to justice deepens and she enlists Tom's help in her plan. However, when a deception in her personal life comes to light, she is left with no one to turn to and resorts to dangerous methods to force Andrew's confession. But she is not alone in her mission. Thriller, starring Joanne Froggatt, Ioan Gruffudd and Warren Brown.
