Time’s running out for Jodie Whittaker in Trust Me as her character Cath is forced to face up to some harsh realities.
It’s crazy to think that we’re already into the penultimate episode of this new BBC drama starring Jodie Whittaker. After a solid but logically questionable start, Trust Me has really started to find its footing. Now, as you might expect from part three of a four-part series, things seriously begin to heat up. At the end of last week, Cath’s colleague-turned-boyfriend Andy discovered the truth about her identity. This week, she must bite the bullet and confront the reality of her situation.
Trust Me Episode 3 is a rollercoaster of events that twists and turns at every corner. From a very cold opening to an extremely dramatic climax, it’s an hour of thrilling psychological entertainment. Jodie Whittaker, though getting less of the spotlight here than before, still puts in a mighty impressive performance. Her world is about to turn inside out and threatens to rip into pieces. All the little subplots developing around her flare up and point squarely in Cath’s direction. Emotions run high and Jodie pulls it all off with understated perfection. And that’s to say nothing of the stand-off between Cath and Andy that we know is bubbling away underneath the surface from the very start of the episode. How he reacts to her betrayal is as shocking, and surprising, as you might predict.
In possibly the most engaging and varied installment yet, it’s time for Cath to face up to some consequences. The cast is superb and the scripts are finally beginning to fire on all cylinders. Trust Me asserts itself as a winning drama that promises to defy expectations and go out with a bang. Just like ‘Ally’ herself, if you think you know what you’re in for – think again…
Episode 3 airs on BBC One at 21:00 on Tuesday 22nd August, 2017.
Following his discovery, Andy has a decision to make. A fatal error at work backs Ally into a corner – does she protect her identity or fall further into the lie?
