Our story line and plot, In the enticingly intriguing series, celebrated for pushing the envelope with its complex sexual themes and introducing audiences to one of the few bisexual characters in British TV history, Linda (Suranne Jones) plays a ex-police officer-turned-sex therapist who shares an office with her brother-in-law (Tristan Gemmill). Her life is further complicated by the fact that she and her husband, Richard (Cristian Solimeno), are unable to conceive --- Naturally the prospect of Richard's brother acting as a surrogate does not sit well with the couple and further adds to their already tense relationship --- Meanwhile, Linda is pulled into the seedy world of fetish and S&M when her ex-lover, Angie (Eva Pope), seeks her expertise on a sordid murder case involving auto erotic asphyxiation --- When another body is discovered - this time one of Linda's clients and Richard is arrested for the murder - both Linda's professional and personal life is put at risk --- What can or will Linda do in this situation --- Don't miss a single episode for the final answer to all of your questions.

I missed this on TV, and bought it mainly because of Suranne Jones, whose acting I admire. I hadn't read any write-ups before purchasing. I found this wickedly funny and compulsive viewing. NOT for the prudish!
I caught this series on TV recently and I've just pre ordered it here.
The series is an interesting mix of genres that seems a bit strange at first. However, once it gets into the flow I found the whole thing dark and disturbing, really quite tense and it actually did a good job of keeping me guessing what would happen next. It was really well acted throughout and I thought the writing was actually rather good.
I must admit I'm partial to actress Suranne Jones, she's wonderful. The screenplay is original set in this sex therapists' environment(not the inevitable cops') and the drama remains intense throughout the FIVE episodes(not 6! because 5 and 6 are identitcal, Idon't know what happened)
