Airing against The Missing writer's new BBC series 'Rellik' is a new drama by the writers of The Missing 'Liar'.
Created and written by BAFTA- and Golden Globe-nominated producers and screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams, Liar tells the story of a night that changes the lives of Laura Newell (Joanne Froggatt) and Andrew Ellis (Ioan Gruffudd) forever.

Laura is a smart and dedicated teacher, not long out of a relationship and unsure about getting back on the dating scene. Andrew is a renowned surgeon whose son is a pupil at Laura’s school. An initial attraction leads to a date, but neither fully realises the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in a tense and gripping thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth. Are there really two sides to every story?

Liar explores the devastating cost of deceit on both the couple and their friends and family, as secrets and lies are laid bare…

What that press release doesn't say is that it is about an alleged rape and the show will look at both sides of the story to help determine whether the rape occured or not...

It is certainly topical and will no doubt prove controversial but it is set to provide a '21st century take on modern-day gender politics' as well as being a 'compellng emotional thriller'.

'Every truth has two sides; it is as well to look at both, before we commit to either.'

Good first episode. Lots of people tweeting that they think a third person was involved. Maybe he left and the ex boyfriend came back and raped her.

?! - This confused me, I had to check IMDB and they did indeed write both 9pm drama premieres tonight! How unusual that they chose to be scheduled against each other.

The first episode was good. I didn't like the introductory scenes and none of the characters seem immediately likeable. I like the premise though, I'm sure everyone's first impression of who the 'liar' is will be different, it's definitely an interesting concept to lead with.
