  1. It is actually a spin off of sorts of Doctor Foster, writen after Suranne Jones said no to S3, even though the show was highly popular in the UK. One of the stories is based around a minor character from Doctor Foster who left to start over, though you won’t pick that up unless you watched Doctor Foster carefully. Doctor Foster was supposedly a Greek Tragedy about a scorned women, but I found it more of a silly melodrama where the medical elements and characters were totally unconvincing. Life starts of very slowly with 4 fairly predictable soap opera stories set in a block of flats in Manchester. I didn’t make it to the end of episode 2, but a friend said it did get more interesting.
