Flora (Juliet Stevenson) is the happy housewife to Conservative Minister of the Family Duncan Matlock (Trevor Eve). They seem to have a perfect family until the media descend on them about his affair. He reveals that he had an affair with assistant Jennifer Caird (Minnie Driver) but he claims that he was set up by the ex-escort and her husband. Flora's father is a senior political hand and expects her to be the stoic supportive wife for her husband's ambition to be Prime Minister. Duncan's aide Mark Hollister reveals that it was not a simple short fling.
Juliet Stevenson is great. Her character holds it back a little too long for my taste. I love "The Good Wife" and this hits some of the similar points. It's a good start. I would definitely have loved to see the story continue.
