Affair leads to dangerous game
Apple Tree Yard, ABC, Friday at 8.30pm
DOCTOR Yvonne Carmichael (Emily Watson, pictured) has a high-flying career, a beautiful home and the ‘perfect family’.
After a confident presentation to a group of MPs, Yvonne is approached by a charismatic stranger (Ben Chaplin), who seems refreshingly interested in what she has to say.
Before she’s had time to stop and think, she finds herself alone and intimate with him in the deserted crypt beneath the House of Commons.
Although she never expects to see him again, their encounter builds to an affair, and the unexpected passion that this man arouses in Yvonne shakes her.
He dictates how their relationship plays out, and she realises that there may be more to his ‘civil service’ role than he lets on.
