Unspeakable (Channel 4 2017, Indira Varma, Luke Treadaway)

One-off drama is written and directed by the BAFTA award-wining David Nath (The Watchman, The Murder Detectives). After dropping her kids at school one morning, Jo receives a disturbing text message from an unknown sender.

It alleges an inappropriate relationship between her new boyfriend Danny, who’s recently moved in, and her 11-year-old daughter.

The implication is clear: it’s the unspeakable. Over a weekend, Jo’s doubts and suspicions begin to grow, until she’s no longer sure of the man she’s living with and what’s he’s capable of.
