...and he left the tissue on the kitchen side for her to see

Loved it. I read an interview with EW a few weeks ago about it. I won't spill any beans but there is a sinister development looming next time...

"What a waste of red wine, though" - corny, you're my kind of person grin

And yes, the medical bits and bobs out on the counter were obviously meant to alarm her, make her feel guilty and let her know he was not pleased!

cornydash Thu 25-Apr-13 23:10:50

lol teejwood grin

yes he seems very controlling.

She says she took a step back for the family but maybe she'll realise that actually this is what she has always wanted.

lurcher is the sinister development linked to the twitter thing hinted at?

lurcherlover Thu 25-Apr-13 23:13:28

Nope. It's linked to...nah, I can't hint without giving it away! Maybe I'll start a new spoiler thread!

teejwood Thu 25-Apr-13 23:26:09

I'm guessing Aiden's controlling tendencies come further into play, lurcher?

lurcherlover Thu 25-Apr-13 23:29:34

Oh yes, tee. And how.

cornydash Thu 25-Apr-13 23:31:53

will that push her further away from him then?

My money's on the hair being a wig BTW - DT's hair that is.

It has helped me fill the Broadchurch gap

lurcherlover Thu 25-Apr-13 23:38:22

OK, I've done a new spoiler thread if you want to know!

cornydash Thu 25-Apr-13 23:38:28

I clicked the spoiler thread shock

I like it. Everyone thinks she's being used to get back at her husband. He's using her to get back at the cabinet. She's not going to be used by anybody because she actually wants the job. Go girl. smile

Okay folks I'm an hour ahead in Fr. is it worth watchingstaying up late for then? BTW i read the spoiler and I'm not sure it's very naice grin

Sugarice Fri 26-Apr-13 12:27:21

Ooh glad there's a thread about this!

Even dh said what a nice house it was. Great show and they're both brilliant in this, love EW especially but isn't DT brilliant at doing nasty.

Poor Noah though, getting so stressed in the car, I almost yelled' go the right way for goodness sake' at the telly.

Can't wait for next week!grin

Just watched on iplayer. Very good, very Borgen smile

I enjoyed it as well.

The shoe thing-funny & sinister at the same time.

That he actually physically changed her shoes-bleurgh!

And why was he so upset-she had to say/imply that she didn't agree, didn't she?

And talking about a camera-"no, not really"- I think he did mean it!!

I also enjoyed it, but I think David Tennant came across a bit forced and unnatural, but maybe that's the point. Or perhaps i'm not used to seeing him play a vulpie character. I'm predicting a fling with him and the nanny.

And yes, the Theresa May line was fab. I also appreciated seeing a married couple enjoy sex. Can't remember the last time I saw this on British TV.

It was great! DT's character felt just the right side of creepy - he is so convinced that he is right it is almost messiah-ish, and the destruction of his best friend after his Judah-like betrayal...ooh!

Emily Watson is a great actor, this character is so measured and controlled in the political arena (as opposed to at home) I am on tenterhooks.

And definitely avoiding spoilers! grin

On again in half an hour!

MavisGrind Thu 02-May-13 20:38:18

Did anyone see The Politicians Wife which this is the flip side to? I think it might be the same writer (?) and had Trevor Eve, Juliet Stephenson and Minnie Driver in it. I think (I really am this vague) it was on in the early 90s and was brilliant!

Enjoying this though except I'm not keen on DTs hair (see, vague and indeed, shallow grin)

LineRunner Thu 02-May-13 20:54:32

I'll be watching it.

Darkesteyes Thu 02-May-13 21:02:11

I saw the Politicians Wife Mavis.

WARNING in this weeks Radio Times Alison Grahams column talks about a harrowing scene at the beginning of tonights episode which could be triggering.

badmumalert Thu 02-May-13 21:09:19

What have I missed in first 5 minutes?

Ikeameatballs Thu 02-May-13 21:14:34

Did he rape her?

Darkesteyes Thu 02-May-13 21:15:52

He anally raped her.
