Moving to a new house should have been a dream come true for Alice (keesley hawks) and Harry (Jason Merrells) and their daughter Charlotte

But turns into a nightmare when Alice finds Harry at the bottom of the stairs dead

And turns out harry has secrets ........

Does anyone know if this is based on a book? It sounds familiar to me x

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 16-Jan-21 21:58:06

Have no idea

But think there was a film called the staircase.which was a true story and wife at bottom and did hubby push

@Melrose86 I don’t think this one is based on true life

Might be the staircase I'm confusing it with. I also read a book a while ago about a guy that had designed a house in a really strange way. It was so modern and everything was high tec. There was a floating staircase in it too that I'm sure someone fell down. I'm terrible with books. I forget what I've read a few months later.

@Melrose86 The Girl Before by JP Delaney!

Oh, thanks OP, this looks good, will be nice to watch something new.
Good cast.
Probably loads of flashbacks though - Jason Merrells isn't going to be in it for half an episode or so, is he?
Looking forward to it.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 17-Jan-21 13:05:29

I’m assuming flashbacks as well @SophieB100. He’s a well known actor so wouidnt be in it for 5mins

That's the one! Nothing to do with Finding Alice 😂

Clickncollect Sun 17-Jan-21 14:28:23

I’ll be tuning in - looks good and a strong cast.

Deathraystare Sun 17-Jan-21 16:56:12

Yeah I will be watching (if I remember!)

Surely the police wouldn't question her like that the day after her husband's death? Surely it would be dealt with more sensitively than that. Also Why did Alice have idea how anything worked. I know her husband designed it but surely they would have discussed what the house would be like together and he's show them how everything worked before they moved in?

covetingthepreciousthings Sun 17-Jan-21 21:18:51

I'm going to give it one episode.. but if it carries on as it is I don't think I'll watch the rest tbh. Anyone else not enjoying it so far? Though I realise it's only been on 15 mins!

Very strange when her mum came to visit and said ‘oh well you will meet someone else’ he only died the night before! I feel like I’m not really buying it, seems very strange

DH and I both said that as soon as we saw them, before we knew that's how he was going to die. I hope she works out how to flush the toilet.

Drawmelikeoneofyourfrenchgirls Sun 17-Jan-21 21:20:58

And when she gave her date of birth, I thought she was 10 years older than that!

sadpapercourtesan Sun 17-Jan-21 21:20:59

Every single person in this so far is annoying.

kerkyra Sun 17-Jan-21 21:22:05

It seems to have a comedy element to it,what with her parents.Not sure if its serious?

JaneJeffer Sun 17-Jan-21 21:23:41

It's very funny.

CaptainMyCaptain Sun 17-Jan-21 21:23:49

Also Why did Alice have idea how anything worked. I know her husband designed it but surely they would have discussed what the house would be like together and he's show them how everything worked before they moved in? I'm surprised she had had no input and she just walked in and it's fully furnished, where are her clothes etc? DH has given up on it and gone to bed. I'll give it a bit longer.

Crinkle77 Sun 17-Jan-21 21:25:00

It did say in the telly mag it was a blankly comic drama but it's so unrealistic and daft so far.

user1486915549 Sun 17-Jan-21 21:25:05

I have just given up on it
Billed as a dark comedy. I just found it unpleasant
