Comments

Despite my admiration for Suranne Jones’s acting ability, she never portrays characters I can come to care about; indeed during the penultimate scene of Doctor Foster series 2 on the edge of a motorway, I was somewhat hoping a strong gust of wind would carry the two protagonists into the path of an oncoming lorry. That alone would have put an end to any prospects of a third series which rather alarmingly, I now hear is in development.

The most disturbing character in the series was not actually Gemma or Simon (both equally “off the scale”) but James, their son’s teacher, played by Prasanna Puwanarajah. In a position to observe the “mind games” being conducted by the warmongering pair at Simon’s wedding reception, all he can muster at the end of an eventful evening is an unsettling form of juvenile interest in seeing her again. Any sane individual would have run a mile.

Ultimately, it is perhaps better to simply write the series off as an excitable thriller with a downbeat ending, rather than assess it as an exploration of family dynamics. The greatest disservice we could do to “Doctor Foster” is to take it seriously.

Lighten up Suranne before the curse of typecasting takes a hold.
