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 3

After Angela (Joanne Froggatt) discovers Olivier’s (Michiel Huisman) secrets, she realises Ed (Samuel Adewunmi) must be telling the truth and agrees to his dangerous plan. However, Angela’s conscience starts to eat away at her. As she watches her sons play and laugh with their father, she questions how far she is willing to go to survive.

Ed convinces Angela that they have to carry out their plan that night, and he gives her precise instructions. Living in a new nightmare, Angela carries out her day as if everything is normal. Will Ed’s plan lead be a success, or will Angela find herself in an even more intricate web of deceit?
