I downloaded this final episode from Amazon as my virgin box had kindly deleted it! The video quality was fine and there are no issues with Amazon's service - it was super easy and reliable as usual.
The show itself started out quite positively, but my personal opinion is that it quickly became a bit dull and unrealistic.
Please do not keep reading unless you have seen all episodes in both season of Doctor Foster (I will not reveal anything regarding this episode).
At first, it seemed like it was building up to be great show, but the characters felt underdeveloped and unrealistic at times. Doctor Foster holds all of the traits of a strong, independent woman and yet frequently falls victim to insecurity, indecisiveness and immaturity.
The son, as brutal as this sounds, is terribly portrayed and I am quickly taken back to reality with each scene he is in as it's such bad acting.
Another element I cannot grasp is that Doctor Foster is unleashing hellfire and brimstone on her ex for his betrayal and yet we consistently see her betrayed by her friend Ros and her son and she has virtually no reaction.
Overall, the show is OK and worth a watch if you can get over the character inconsistencies but there is a lot of room for improvement.
Really good program. Probably as good as the first season which is quite rare. The acting is pretty good and the storyline has a good balance between being really interesting and believeable, something the BBC have often got wrong, especially with second and third seasons of something that has been successful.

Enjoyed watching season 2, but preferred season 1. Without giving anything away, S2 had a few things in that l believe a 'normal' person just wouldn't do. Made me wonder who is actually the fruitloop here?
Very watchable but uncomfortable viewing at the same time. Didn't warm to the characters but maybe that was the point. Felt for the son throughout. Would recommend other dramas like Collateral and Unforgotten before this.
