Liar (ITV series)

 

Postby Benny » Wed Sep 13, 2017 7:36 pm

Liar is a six-part thriller miniseries created by brothers Harry and Jack Williams, and co-produced by SundanceTV and ITV. The series stars Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd, and debuted on ITV on 11 September 2017.

Laura (played be Joanne Froggatt) is a smart and dedicated teacher, not long out of a relationship and unsure about getting back on the dating scene. Andrew (played by Ioan Gruffudd) is a renowned surgeon whose son is a pupil at Laura's school. An initial attraction leads to a date, but neither fully realizes the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in the tense and gripping thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth. Are there really two sides to every story?

I'm a fan of Joanne Froggatt so I had to watch the pilot and it was really good. You couldn't say who of the two was telling the truth because they both seemed so convincing.
Can't wait for episode two!

Watched it, enjoyed it.

My theory... they had sex, he left, somebody else came around and raped her. Maybe his surgeon colleague, maybe her brother in law, maybe the ex!?.

I've downloaded it as Adam said it was good on Twitter.

Will plan some time in to watch it!

Excellent second episode. Joanne Froggatt's acting is superb.

I wonder what's happened with this guy who's claiming she's accused someone of rape before! It's all against her at the moment but I think it'll swing back to her favour soon enough.

Wait, there's two more episodes! I thought that was the finale and I was really pissed off.

So as it stands, it's seeming that he obviously did do it... it became apparent the minute he asked that police officer in for a drink the second his case was dropped! He's a psychopath. Unless there's another big twist coming.

I’m sure there’s three more episodes?

I think there will be another twist, they’re both playing really convincing roles!

This gets better with every episode and probably one of the top programs on TV right now.

So it's definitely him... as if he raped the police officer too while she was knocked out! He's like a professional sex offender. Look forward to his downfall!

What did we make of the finale? I think it would've been more satisfying for him to have been arrested and jailed - at least if they're going to have him murdered, let us see it! I'd like to think there's a series two coming based around the murder.

The drama peaked with Earlham's grisly death - but with unanswered questions of who, when, where and how it happened. As the credits rolled, ITV announced there would be a second series.
