Review

Newly divorced 60-year-old Julia, who confronts disaster by donning a Cath Kidston apron and roasting a chicken (hey, don't we all?), is walking on air now she’s fallen hard for the much younger Benjamin. But he's a passive aggressive creep who is despised by Julia's terminally self-obsessed children: "The man has no social media footprint!” is the damning remark from her eldest son.

So, a bit like the kids in Scooby-Doo, though without the whimsy, they set about following this new man in their mum's life, to find out who he really is. It's another torrid episode of a lip-smacking melodrama that clearly tries to steer us in one direction – surely Ben is Up to No Good?

But Julia (Julia Ormond) is delighted with her new man, as she battles flashbacks to incidents of violence. She takes him to her massive great house in Devon and they scandalise the locals by holding hands in the village street. It won't end well, you mark my words.  

Summary

Julia brings Benjamin to her Devon home, and he is taken aback to see the extent of her wealth. The visit is disrupted by a tense confrontation with Ted, who questions Julia's motivations for forming a new relationship. Julia opts to return to London, and asks to meet Benjamin's friends - but when he refuses to show her where he lives, she begins to fear he is hiding something from her. Della turns up unannounced on her ex's doorstep, and is put under pressure by her brother into digging up dirt on Benjamin.
