Four part drama Trust Me premieres on BBC One on the 8 August. Cath Hardacre is a good nurse. Caring and hard-working, she does her best for everyone in the cardiology ward she works in. However, when she raises her concerns about the standards slipping in the hospital, Cath’s world takes a turn for the worse.
After being sacked for whistle-blowing, Cath turns to her best friend Dr. Ally Sutton, who is leaving her life as an A&E doctor and emigrating to New Zealand with her new husband. At a drunken party Cath finds Ally’s discarded paperwork and makes the desperate decision to take a second chance at life – by stealing her best friend’s identity.
Cath, now calling herself Ally, accepts a job at a failing emergency department in Edinburgh and embarks upon a new life with her young daughter Molly. However, with her good-for-nothing ex-partner Karl trying to spend time with them and a journalist chasing her about the issues at her former hospital, how will Ally cope with leading a double life?
Cath Hardacre is played by Jodie Whittaker (pictured above), Dr Andy Brenner by Emun Elliott, Dr Brigitte Rayne by Sharon Small and Karl is played by Blake Harrison.
Trust Me Episode 1 (of 4) airs on Tuesday 8 August from 9.00pm-10.00pm on BBC ONE.
