Anyone else watching?

Haven't heard anything about it previously, but just stumbled across it and thought I'd give it a go.

It's a drama about a mother who receives an anonymous text alleging her new boyfriend is in an inappropriate relationship with her 11-year-old daughter.

Btw, that's the comment I cut and pasted from the Ch 4 website: "It's a drama about a mother who receives an anonymous text alleging her new boyfriend is in an inappropriate relationship with her 11-year-old daughter."
I wouldn't describe paedophilia as being in an inappropriate relationship hmm

I'm watching.

MrsHass Sun 05-Nov-17 21:25:31

Do you know how many episodes of this there will be?

blackbunny Sun 05-Nov-17 21:26:28

Watching here.Bit slow so far?
Is it a one off or a two pattern?

youngestisapsycho Sun 05-Nov-17 21:26:41

I think it’s a one off?

blackbunny Sun 05-Nov-17 21:26:50

Or partner even!

blackbunny Sun 05-Nov-17 21:27:24

Fuck it, parter!

MrsHass Sun 05-Nov-17 21:29:33

Just googled, it is a one off.
Well, at least it won't be dragged out then!

MrsHass Sun 05-Nov-17 21:30:56

And it's only on for an hour. Not sure how this will end then with getting to the bottom of the text messages.

Cagliostro Sun 05-Nov-17 21:32:37

Yikes hadn't heard of this. Not sure if I dare watch

PickAChew Sun 05-Nov-17 21:35:30

Not watching it but I think the whole plot was summarised by the trailer, nyhow.

As an aside, I love her hair and wish mine would behave so nicely.

twofloorsup Sun 05-Nov-17 21:38:32

Ah I thought it was a series.

MrsHass Sun 05-Nov-17 21:41:23

I've not seen the trailer.
I'm curious to know how this will play out - 20 minutes to get to the bottom of it.

MrsHass Sun 05-Nov-17 21:43:38

Why is he saying no police when all he would need is for Katie to say that he hadn't abused her? Why isn't he saying to speak to Katie?

twofloorsup Sun 05-Nov-17 21:44:12

He's certainly acting like a guilty man !

MrsHass Sun 05-Nov-17 21:45:38

I hope this isn't going to be one of these programmes that leaves us with an ambiguous ending.

blackbunny Sun 05-Nov-17 21:46:11

Yeah someone who has nothing to hide would be saying, let's take all this to the police,let them investigate this

Graphista Sun 05-Nov-17 21:48:03

Yes no to an ambiguous ending please and actually I think one hour for such a serious subject is out of order.

MrsHass Sun 05-Nov-17 21:48:43

Ooooh. Is it the dad stirring shit then? shock

twofloorsup Sun 05-Nov-17 21:52:53

Looks that way !

MrsHass Sun 05-Nov-17 21:54:38

Well...that was shit confused

And yeah, for such a serious subject it really was not played out well.

Graphista Sun 05-Nov-17 21:54:53

That said... As I've said on here numerous times on threads where mum has a new boyfriend...

Jo has known him less than a year and moved Danny in pretty quickly. Even without abuse the daughter is clearly unhappy.

And yes I think you do have a conversation with your ex before you decide to bring another adult to live with them!

But yes - that was a vile thing for the dad to do, he should have talked to the mum properly not done something so fucking immature that could have resulted in his daughter going through some very intrusive physical exams and questioning.

blackbunny Sun 05-Nov-17 21:55:09

Good story. Think it should have been over 2 nights to show the ex husband getting his come uppance

peanut2017 Sun 05-Nov-17 21:55:41

That was crap and not something that should be dealt with in that way. Felt like they just needed to wrap it up into the hour
