Apple Tree Yard: Series 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
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.
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.
