Full marks to the BBC drama department for yanking us out of our comfort zone, the predictability of a yet another “mid-life crisis romp” suddenly blown apart by the sheer unexpected horror of a brutal rape scene. Millions of viewers unfamiliar with the novel Apple Tree Yard would have been jolted from their Sunday night lethargy in the most visually discomforting manner possible. Thereafter of course, it was all rather predictable fare, and most unworthy of any repeat viewing. I’m only surprised there’s been no PR backlash from the Secret Escapes British travel company. The actress Emily Watson’s character Yvonne Carmichael, a goody-two-shoes scientist who embarks on an affair with a mysterious stranger she meets in the Houses of Parliament, seemed content with back street sex. No wining and dining in country hotels. Dear me, just think of those falling profit margins.

The Politician's Husband (BBC Tv 2013)

I preserved this on disc, and it’s worth revisiting.

Aiden Hoynes (David Tennant) And Freya Hoynes (Emily Watson) are the golden couple of British politics. Aiden is a senior cabinet minister tipped for the top and Freya a junior minister who has had to put her own career on hold for the sake of husband’s and to spend more time at home raising their young children.

When Aiden suffers a humiliating political betrayal by his best friend and fellow cabinet minister Bruce Babbish (Ed Stoppard) Aiden finds himself consigned to the back benches and a life of political obscurity. But it’s when Freya is offered a senior cabinet post herself that the humiliation intensifies as Aiden struggles to deal with his wife’s new found success. Driven by a desire to avenge his downfall and increasingly threatened by his wife’s meteoric rise, Aiden gambles it all in this gripping tale of political intrigue and shifting sexual politics within a marriage.
