Dr. Yvonne Carmichael seems to have it all - however, nothing is ever as it appears. When she receives an unexpected proposition from an enigmatic stranger, Yvonne is shocked by the passion he awakens in her.
The rape scene was heavily criticised by several victim support organisations, with Rape Crisis England and Wales spokeswoman Katie Russell branding the scene "harrowing". A spokesperson for the series commented that; "The rape scene is an integral part of the leading character's story, faithful to the text of the best-selling novel. The drama goes on to raise important, complex questions about the consequences of sexual violence, exploring the emotional and psychological implications for her. It transmitted in a post watershed slot and there was a warning prior to broadcast and the BBC action line was given at the end for any viewers who were affected."
When Yvonne is dressing to go out, she is shown putting on stockings, but later is revealed to be wearing tights in the pub scene.
