Amanda Coe's script, adapted from Louise Doughty's novel, took us to dark yet real-seeming places, illustrating the dilemma and hurt with moments of star-bright drama.

But ATY, aside from being a gripping thriller... asked us to think beyond the rape, to the aftermath and effects.

It's the dark undertones in this drama that make it worth watching.

At times, Apple Tree Yard may feel a little self-conscious in its desire to be drama for grown-ups - but drama for grown-ups it is nonetheless.

Here, mercifully, Yvonne is not diminished; damaged but not destroyed. As the story gets darker, turning through consequences and revelations (rather than twists), it's her power, more than her lover's, that comes under close examination.

After some knockout acting from Emily Watson, the final disclosure gave the tail a nice little sting.
