What's on TV - - Hot Tv This Week! -

De­spite their dogged ef­forts, teacher Laura (Joanne Frog­gatt) and de­tec­tive Vanessa (Shel­ley Conn) seem no closer to mak­ing their rapist An­drew (Ioan Gruf­fudd) pay for his crimes as the tense thriller con­cludes. When the creepy doc­tor starts an­other re­la­tion­ship, how­ever, will his new love be­come his next vic­tim or will he fi­nally get his come­up­pance?

School­teacher Laura’s trau­matic bat­tle to prove she was raped by sur­geon An­drew draws to a shock­ing close in the fi­nale of ITV thriller

Liar this week.

While Laura’s bid to frame her rapist af­ter drug­ging and kid­nap­ping him has al­ready failed, preg­nant de­tec­tive Vanessa Har­mon (Shel­ley Conn), who was also as­saulted by An­drew, has been un­able to find the cru­cial ev­i­dence she needs to put him away.

Fake alibi

Mean­while, twisted An­drew is still try­ing to cover his tracks and asks his son, Luke (Jamie Flat­ters), to give him an alibi. But he’s also start­ing to feel more at ease and is ro­manc­ing a young wo­man named Char­lotte (played by Laura Aik­man).

‘Time has passed and while Laura is get­ting on with her life as much as she can, An­drew’s in the early stages of a new re­la­tion­ship,’ says Ioan Gruf­fudd, who plays An­drew. ‘His pre­dic­tion that Vanessa won’t find any­thing on him has come true and he does seem to have got away with his crimes.’

How­ever, when Laura (Joanne Frog­gatt) then learns that An­drew is dat­ing again, she’s de­ter­mined to stop Char­lotte suf­fer­ing the same fate and makes a fi­nal risky move to nail An­drew. But as the pres­sure mounts, will Laura be able to fi­nally bring him down?

‘It has be­come a real cat-and-mouse game,’ says Ioan. ‘An­drew is en­joy­ing the con­trol – it’s al­most a drug to him. The more he gets away with it, the more ar­ro­gant and pos­si­bly over­con­fi­dent he be­comes with his meth­ods.’

Cli­max

As the ac­tion moves to­wards a stun­ning cli­max, Ioan hopes that view­ers will be left feel­ing sur­prised and un­set­tled by what they learn.

‘There are some big and ex­cit­ing twists!’ Ioan teases. ‘There will be things that are left open-ended but I hope that view­ers will be both sat­is­fied and also left slightly un­easy and un­com­fort­able.’
