Anna Friel - Deep Water

Set against the beautiful and imposing backdrop of the Lake District, this intriguing thriller/drama is adapted from the Windermere series of novels by Paula Daly.

ITV has been barren of quality drama for years so it is encouraging to see it taking its first steps into doing what it did so well back in the 1980s. Deep Water‘s opener hinted enough to keep us on the hook with its Big Little Lies-type undercurrent and the three complex female protagonists, each struggling to keep their heads above the water (pun intended), promise much over the course of this six-parter.

This week, Lisa (Anna Friel) tries to make amends for her part in Lucinda’s disappearance but is starting to see a different side to Kate and Guy., but her concerns fall on deaf ears with husband Joe who tells her to focus on their own family.

Deep Water – Tuesday at 9.00pm on ITV.
