Keeping Faith

Series 2 - Episode 1

Review

One of the biggest word-of-mouth hits of recent years returns, with the entire second series (first shown in Welsh on S4C) made available on iPlayer after this first episode airs. Series two picks up 18 months after the runaway Evan Howells (Bradley Freegard) lurched back into the lives of his solicitor wife Faith (Eve Myles) and their three children.

Writer Matthew Hall doesn’t throw us straight into the explanations and recriminations, though, and teases us for a little while with glimpses of Faith’s life now. It looks very much like her life before Evan vanished – she clip-clops around in spiky heels after noisy breakfast-times with her kids.

Ah, but so much has changed. Where’s Evan, for starters, and what happened between husband and wife after he arrived home to find her kissing another man?

Hall throws us clues piecemeal, intercut with Eve out of her depth as she defends a farmer accused of murdering her husband with a shotgun.

Summary

The legal drama returns, with Faith taking on the case of a farmer accused of murdering her husband 18 months after her own spouse's unexplained disappearance. The case puts her on a collision course with the police, her colleagues and the community, as the truth about her husband finally begins to come to light.
