a woman suspects her husband of having an affair
28 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Suranne Jones stars with Bertie Carvel,Thusitha Jayasundera, and Jodie Comer in Dr. Foster: A Woman Scorned. This was shown in three two-hour segments on American television.

Suranne Jones plays Gemma Foster, a successful doctor. When she finds a long blonde hair on her husband's coat, she suspects that he's having an affair. Eventually she finds out that he is. She also finds out that he's bleeding their money on a new project. Unfortunately she still loves him, and he claims to love her. She wants to make it work; finally she realizes that she can't.

She decides to get revenge, and when she does, watch out.

This series moved slowly at first and heated up in the fifth and sixth episodes. During the first four episodes, you want to slap her - why is she even considering staying with this guy? Granted, they have a son, but the tension in that house isn't helping him any.

The most striking scene, which I am sure others have mentioned, is in episode five when Gemma and her husband show up at another couple's house for dinner a week early. Gemma's complete outrageousness starts there and just keeps on going.

Supposedly there will be a season 2. It will be interesting to see what happens.
