Critic Consensus: Liar has just enough twists to make it more than just another thriller -- though its treatment of sensitive issues leaves something to be desired.

News & Interviews for Liar: Season 1
It's all moderately gripping, I suppose. The performances are workmanlike, and the mood suitably tricksy.
Unfortunately, [Liar] found itself out-gimmicked and outgunned by its writers' other creation, whodunit-in-reverse Rellik over on BBC One.
In the end, Liar isn't the show we were hoping it would be. As is so often the case, lies might make for the better narrative, and the truth is an unpleasant one.
The conditions are ripe to force the audience to question the motives of everyone involved, and even themselves for indulging in this odd, queasy genre of 'rape thriller'.
