WHAT are you do­ing? Where are you go­ing? Don’t go up those stairs! No, wait, don’t go into their bed­room! Don’t sit on the bed! Get out of there! Don’t you dare open that bed­side drawer…. don’t…Don’t look in there! Wait a minute, what’s…Don’t touch that! Don’t take that out! What the hell are you do­ing…! Th­ese, more or less, were my notes last week, dur­ing the first episode of this sec­ond se­ries of Mike Bartlett’s batty in­fi­delity drama, as the loosely-hinged Gemma Foster (Su­ranne Jones) went sneak­ing around the home of her hor­ren­dous ex-hus­band Si­mon (Ber­tie Carvel) and his new wife. But fans will know Gemma’s bad be­hav­iour can get much, much worse. And so it proves tonight. Now she knows Si­mon is plan­ning to take their son Tom away, and then drive her out of the vil­lage like a witch, Gemma is sashay­ing onto the warpath, snoop­ing around the town after dark, in­dulging in a bit of ter­ri­fy­ing black­mail, and fu­elling her­self mostly on wine … Be afraid.
