Did anyone watch? BBC3

It was a lot more harrowing than I had expected. I read an interview with Daniela Nardini who said she felt it was a true reflection of teens in this situation - she lost her own brother in a car accident when he was 19.

Second part is tomorrow, I think.

It was harrowing and shows how easily and quickly lives are shattered. Part 2 is next Tuesday.

I found it very upsetting to watch as my Dd is the same age I don't know if I can watch the second part .

I saw this after a recommendation in the Times, and thought it was very well done. Great acting from both the young ones and the parents.
I think the second one is next week.

It was very well done, but I'm another one who isn't going to watch the second part as it was just too harrowing (my dd is 17).

I watched it too, it was very harrowing. My DC are younger though so not so tough for me. Can't wait for the conclusion

I have DDs approaching the age of the young people in this and found it very hard to watch but well done I thought.

Wasn't the one who was OK and in the field with the dead boy the sister of one of them and Daniella Nardini's daughter? Why did they run off without her only asking about the blond sister?

Good though!

I am glad I have found a thread about this - I wanted to ask a stupid question, sorry...

How did the crash happen? There were five cars shown - but only two after the crash with the two groups of friends? Yet it said they hit a 4x4, so how did the second car come to be involved?

Amazing, harrowing acting in the final quarter - but I just keep thinking I've missed something obvious??

Did no one watch this last night?Brilliant acting by the boyfriend accused of causing the crash-the best acting i've seen apart from Last Tango in Halifax.Really harrowing to watch though.

Yes I thought it was excellent last night.
Brilliant acting.
The anguish of the parents was so harrowing.

I've just watched both episodes on i-player with my 16 year old DD and was in absolute bits. It was so well done, much better than recent dramas I've seen and deserved a prime time slot, although I understand that it was on BBC3 to target young people and get the message across.
