“I can understand that rollercoaster people go on when they’ve lied.
“They start to cover up that lie and it just becomes a huge web of deceit they can’t get out of.
“I’ve seen people do that and seen it spiral out of control.”

It begins at 9pm on Monday (Dec 11) and will be screened over four consecutive nights.

THE third and final episode of South Riding has just finished on BBC1.
I first saw it a few weeks ago and have watched it again several times since.
A beautiful, haunting last hour of television drama, adapted by screenwriter Andrew Davies from Winifred Holtby’s novel.
Both heartbreaking and uplifting.
With a spellbinding – and hopefully award-winning – performance from Anna Maxwell Martin as Sarah Burton.
