The Stranger premieres

Adam Price is a lawyer with two kids, a vivacious wife called Corinne and not much to concern him beyond his woeful goalkeeping. Then, after the match, a total stranger – a young woman in a baseball cap, with a manner both flirtatious and menacing – drops into the seat beside him and tells him that Corinne’s pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage from two years before had been entirely faked.

The stranger has no obvious motive for the reveal, and does not stick around to elaborate. But, with his wife away, Adam follows up on the accusation and discovers some corroborating evidence.

This an eight-part thriller predicated on the notion that everybody harbours at least one secret with destructive potential.

All episodes available on Netflix.
