Liar with Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd Premieres Monday 11 Sep on ITV

In six part crime thriller Liar, schoolteacher Laura Nielson (Froggatt) has just broken up with her long-term boyfriend Tom (Warren Brown), when she runs into the father of one of her pupils. There is an instant attraction between the two. Andrew Earlham (Gruffudd) is a handsome surgeon who has been recently widowed.

Andrew is immediately interested in Laura and asks her out. Laura has suspicions that her sister Katy (Zoe Tapper), who is also Andrew’s colleague, has been playing cupid but agrees to go on a date with Andrew. When they meet up, there is a powerful chemistry between them and they quickly build up a good rapport. The next day, a hollow-eyed Laura walks to her sister’s house where she reveals that something truly horrific happened with Andrew.

Laura accuses of Andrew of rape and he is arrested, the fall out will affect everyone around them.

The series, another strong story from the Williams brothers, aired directly opposite BBC-1 crime drama Rellik which was also written by the Williams brothers. There was an excellent twist at the end of the third episode which set things on their head.
