Storyline

Two years have passed and Gemma is bringing up her 15 year old son Tom alone so she is surprised to learn that Simon and Kate, now married, have moved back to the area so he can be nearer to Tom, whom he invites - along with some of Gemma's friends - to his wedding reception. Gemma decides to crash the affair with James, a handsome patient whom she has agreed to date and who turns out to be Tom's school-teacher, but, getting Simon alone, she drunkenly claims he still wants her, which he denies. Next day he visits her, telling her that she needs to move on and forget the past, and to prove it he persuades Tom to move in with him. He should have realized that this will, once more, set Doctor Foster on a further plan for revenge. Written by don @ minifie-1

Suranne Jones gurns unconvincingly.
27 September 2017 | by stephen_wildSee all my reviews

I'm on ep 4 now and what an absolutely fine performance from Ms Comer. The other characters were but cardboard clichés compared to her and the actors just conformed to those clichés (albeit being driven by the writing and direction). Ms Comer was so believable and convincing being both steely determined and slightly vulnerable .

And let's face it any bloke given the choice between the two characters/actresses would go for Ms Comer. Let's be honest Suranne Jones is not really attractive at all. "Face like a bag o' spanners" as my grandad would have said.
