Doc­tor Fos­ter

BBC1, 9pm

It was all too in­evitable that the con­tin­u­ing bat­tle be­tween Dr Gemma Fos­ter (Su­ranne Jones, right) and her slimy ex-hus­band Si­mon (Ber­tie Carvel) should claim an in­no­cent ca­su­alty in their son Tom. And so it seemed to prove in last week’s episode, with his shock­ing at­tack on Max.

So will the par­ents now put their dif­fer­ences aside to help their child and un­der­stand just what’s go­ing on in­side his trou­bled teenage brain? Their his­tory of un­remit­tingly self­ish be­hav­iour doesn’t fill you with hope, and in­stead what we get tonight is per­haps the most shock­ing scene so far across both series as we dis­cover just how im­pos­si­ble it is for the cou­ple to ex­punge from them­selves the love that has turned to loathing.

Mean­while that nice hand­some James is still around on the scene, and we can only pray that Gemma will see some sense and at­tempt to put her dam­aged past be­hind her.
