Critic Reviews for Trust Me Season 1

The problems with this plot came teeming so hard into my head that I couldn't pay proper attention to the drama unfolding before me. The suspension of disbelief didn't come.

Trust Me was certainly incident-packed. However, the suspense never quite soared to the anticipated pressure- cooker levels.

Aug 23, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Don't let the BBC logo, competent acting and moody lighting fool you -- this is basically a mad Shortland Street storyline that's been condensed into miniseries format.

Jun 10, 2019 | Full Review…

As it stands though, Trust Me feels more like a limp critique of recruitment issues in the NHS, and an argument for giving nurses seniority over newly qualified doctors than it does a gripping psychological drama.

Apr 19, 2019 | Full Review…

The whole thing is as daft as performing open heart surgery with a spoon, but what will keep us watching is Whittaker...

Jul 31, 2018 | Full Review…

If you want to be taken seriously, then be serious. Iron out your wrinkles, bring reality to your characters, straighten your wonky plots, and maybe then we can talk.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

It lacks edge, but it's effervescent and appealing enough to merit, at least, a temporary season pass on the DVR.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

The camera spent plenty of time scoping Whittaker's green-brown pupils for signs of paranoid terror. Things got so tense you'd have been forgiven for suffering a coronary on the sofa.

Dec 27, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A thriller that taps into deep rooted fears of inept surgeons and medical horror stories.

Dec 27, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a tense drama and very well written by screenwriter/doctor Dan Sefton, but it only works so well because [Jodi] Whittaker is so good.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Trust Me is a medical drama with a noir thriller's heartbeat

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

[Jodi] Whittaker holds the operation together with a convincing portrait of a likeable, down-to-earth soul who finds her life spiralling out of control.

    Loved it. Clever and binge worthy.

    Okay script but Jodie is a really bad actress. Unconvincing and pulled me out of it. Shame
