New ITV series Liar conclude tonight but who’s on the cast, what’s it all about and what time is it on?
New six-part thriller Liar tells the story of a night that changes the lives of Laura Nielson and Andrew Earlham 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…
Laura Nielson (Joanne Froggatt) – Intelligent, outspoken and strong-willed, Laura is popular with both pupils and staff at the local secondary school where she teaches English.
Andrew Earlham (Ioan Gruffudd) – Outwardly charming, Andrew is a well-respected cardiac surgeon, popular with patients and colleagues alike at Broadhill Hospital, where he works.
Katy Sutcliffe (Zoe Tapper) – Smart, frank and upbeat, Katy shares many qualities with her sister Laura.
Tom Bailey (Warren Brown) – Passionate and impulsive, Tom is popular with his friends and on good terms with his ex-girlfriend Laura, but is unlikely to make many allies in his line of work as a local police officer.
Liam Sutcliffe (Ritchie Campbell) – Patient, kind, a loving husband to Katy and father to their two little boys. But not everything is as it seems. His wife, Katy, has been acting strangely recently – she seems distant, different somehow.
DI Vanessa Harmon (Shelley Conn) – Calm, professional and passionate about her work, Detective Inspector Harmon takes pride in the care she puts in to every case she is assigned.
In the sixth episode, Andrew is shaken to the core and tells Luke about the latest accusations and Laura refuses to give up easily.
Liar airs this evening at 9PM on ITV with the final of six episodes.
