Angela Black

Series overview

Angela’s life appears idyllic: a lovely house in suburban London, days working volunteer shifts at a dogs home, two beautiful sons and a charming, hard-working husband – Olivier.

However, beneath this façade of charmed domesticity, Angela is a victim of domestic violence. Olivier is controlling and brutal; but Angela loves him and he’s the father of her children. She can’t leave him, even though she has threatened to countless times. So, she covers her bruises with makeup and fabricates lies to explain away her missing teeth.

Until, one day, Angela is approached by Ed – a Private Investigator - and he smashes her already strained domestic life to pieces. Ed reveals Olivier’s deepest secrets to Angela, and she is faced with horrifying truths about her husband and his betrayals. But can Angela trust Ed?

And what truths will be revealed in the ferocious fight between Angela and her husband?

With one encounter, Angela’s life switches from school runs and the dogs home to private detectives and buried secrets. This is a Hitchcockian thriller that follows one woman as she risks everything she holds dear to fight back against the man who has suppressed and tormented her for most of her adult life.

Episode 2

Following Ed’s (Samuel Adewunmi) bombshell reveal, Angela (Joanne Froggatt) struggles to act as if everything is normal at home. From waking up in an empty house to a bloody discovery, Angela’s paranoia is getting the better of her. Can she trust Ed or should she continue to live a life of superficial charmed domesticity? When Ed suggests that Angela might be able to find answers, she decides to act.

With Olivier still trying to make amends for his most recent violent attack, Angela must use everything she has to keep up the façade of the perfect wife. However, Angela’s discoveries start to reveal more about Olivier’s secret past, and her fragile domestic life begins to fall down around her.
