Nonsense? Quite likely, but it’s still must-see
I’d be willing to stick a tenner on her having turned the wheel at the last moment, once she had given her ex a bit of a fright.
Mind you, Gemma had already done an impressive job of making his life a misery by that stage.
Through a sequence of impressively Machiavellian manoeuvres, she managed to force new missus Kate (Jodie Comer) and her infant daughter into emigrating to France.
Meanwhile, Simon found himself turfed out of both his luxury gaff and apparently successful business. Who knows what happens next? We will presumably find out when the final instalment of this series is aired next week.
If Simon has survived, I suspect an even worse fate might await him. It certainly seems clear that both Gemma and Kate are determined to nail him at this stage. Even worse from his perspective, it looks like they could even become sisters-in-arms.
So, he could effectively have two Doctor Fosters on his case. Rather him than me.
Drama: Suranne Jones GIVEN that it is by far the most interesting thing on television at the moment, I make absolutely no apology for casting an eye on the doings of Gemma Foster for the second week on the trot. It may well end up being the most ridiculous drama in television history, of course, but it is still looking pretty good at the moment.
As the closing credits rolled on Tuesday’s episode, it was unclear whether the eponymous GP (Suranne Jones) had revved up her car and deliberately knocked down former husband Simon (Bertie Carvel).
