Another terrific series originally shown on BBC...

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.

Never has a TV drama raised so many awkward, sweaty questions.

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.

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

It is thrilling and simultaneously disturbing; among the most disturbing you will watch this year.

Already I wish it had not been made.

There is a strong message here that -- contrary to what you might be led to believe from every other drama on television -- female sexuality doesn't suddenly end at 35, but can become more powerful and more profound.
