Review

A series that can be either painfully wise or forbiddingly indulgent is on the money this week. We flit between Suzie (Billie Piper) attending a meeting with the producers of the rubbish zombie drama she’d like to think she’s outgrown, and her manager Naomi (Leila Farzad) visiting a fertility doctor before hitting the app hook-up scene with alacrity.

While Naomi’s fatigued desperation leads to dialogue that rewrites the clichés of awkward first dates, Suzie’s painful reckoning is complicated by the presence of her husband Cob (Daniel Ings), a man who is capable of tenderness, but is riddled with inadequacy, aggression and a childish delight in being verbally offensive. He’s eerily well drawn.

Summary

Cob decides it is his turn to let loose, and Suzie is forced to combine dinner with her producers with Cob's wild night out. Drama, starring Billie Piper.
