Jodie Whittaker continues to impress as the pressure begins to mount in the second episode of Trust Me.
It’s not taken Cath long to establish herself as a doctor – and as ‘Ally’ – in her new workplace. But while her colleagues were easy enough to fool, some schoolgirl mistakes start coming back to haunt her. Administrative errors and surgical setbacks thrust Cath into a corner, and the only way to escape is to dig herself down into an even deeper hole. In her desperation to make her new life work, Cath begins making some careless decisions. And when being ‘Ally’ becomes all too stressful, Cath finds herself on the verge of breaking down – and on the verge of revealing a bit too much…
Elsewhere, Cath’s fake identity comes under threat from all different angles. Her ex-husband Karl is keen to have more of an influence in their young daughter’s life. Sam Kelly, the newshound eager to turn her whistle-blowing into a national story, is also still hot on her trail. And, as her relationship with fellow doctor Andy becomes more and more intense, how long can she keep covering up the truth? Her web of lies isn’t as iron-clad as she thinks, and it’s only a matter of time before it inevitably unravels around her.
Trust Me Episode 2 is a consistent and confident follow-up to last week’s opener, boasting the same suspenseful tone and feel – and maybe even a bit more charm. And yes, don’t you worry: Jodie Whittaker is still very much impressing as the star of the show. If the first episode of this new BBC drama managed to pique your interest, we don’t think you’ll be disappointed here.
Episode 2 airs on BBC One at 21:00 on Tuesday 15th August, 2017.
Cath finds herself falling for Andy and wonders how can she keep hold of the perfect man when she is living a lie. An encounter with someone from her past threatens to expose her secret.
