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 4

Angela (Joanne Froggatt) is left helpless following the heart-stopping revelations at the end of episode three, as she is admitted to the very place she has been dreading. Angela is introduced to an alien environment of rules and routine and forced to confront what has happened in the previous weeks.

We quickly learn how long Olivier’s (Michiel Huisman) abuse of Angela has been going on and witness the extreme isolation and distress that Angela experienced in the past. With this insight, we are forced to question where the truth really lies, while Angela struggles to let go of the idea that the game is not over yet, and that Ed (Samuel Adewunmi) still has a part to play in it.
