Trust Me S1 E3 recap review: Cathy witnessed a hard truth at the hospital that could expose her once and for all (spoiler alert)

This is a review of the BBC series Trust Me,  series 1 episode 3, featuring Jodie Whittaker as Cathy/Alison.

The Plot

Part of the reason, Cath pursued her position as a doctor was to uncover why so many patient deaths have occurred in the hospital, labelled as accidents. She was finally exposed to a harsh insight and saw one for herself, only to cover it up. It is then that she realised how there was more to these incidents, and that is not just the altering of reports. Her involvement in the case has leave her out to dry for all to see. It is about time that they would come asking about it.

Her week had really not been good, and with the recent passing of her father, she was rather distracted. So a trip to Andy’s countryside home was nice and could allow her to relax – but oh wait.. he had an agenda and he knew about her Cathy/Alison cover up. Only he wanted to help her because she was the best doctor they had.

Sweet of him.. but would his decision come back to bite him and was it genuine?

My Thoughts

The episode progressed rather quickly – on a spectrum from sympathy and anger to shock and complete horror. I was on an emotional rollercoaster.

I was glad that Andy helped her when he confronted her about her secret, but it is a big thing to keep and I have this feeling that he may not stick to his word. He has the power to make or break her and going into the final episode, the truth will come out one way or another.

There was a horrific case during Cathy’s busy shift. It was the blood and the needles. I was close to looking away, it was not for the faint hearted.

What’s coming up…

A dramatic episode!

  • Will they find out her true identity?
  • Will Andy keep his word?
  • Will she publicise the conspiracy or will she stick up for the team?

This is the final episode and I am excited!

Star Rating

This episode gets 3 stars and a good recommendation! Despite some unplausible points that I mentioned in previous  episode reviews, this series is entertaining and watchable.

Trust Me S1E2 recap: Things get tense as Cathy gets a little too deep and risks everything she holds dear! #docotrincrisis

Episode 2 of Trust Me was a little more dramatic and I liked it! Who doesn’t like a little of drama…

The Plot

Cathy is deep in her lies and the longer she works there, the more trouble she will get into. She has such a burden on her shoulders, and feels under pressure from her undercover secret! She would do anything to keep it, like acquiring a fake passport.

So called “Alison” has found her place in the hospital and she has made an great impression amongst her colleagues, especially Dr Andrew Brenner who is completely into her. Their secret relationship is rather controversial, especially if it is eventually unearthed by her husband?

Despite fitting in, it has not been easy. It has been full of mistakes – mostly basic tell tale procedures and even providing her passport was a little difficult – because, of course she was not Alison.  I don’t understand why someone has not caught on to it .

Trust Me S1 E1 recap: Jodie Whittaker finds herself as doctor with one aim: to uncover the truth!

A new series on the BBC once again tries to grab our attention with a heart stopping drama with Jodie Whittaker posing as a doctor in an A&E hospital in Edinburgh (Doctor? such a coincidence..).

The Plot

The plot is fairly simple, but has a complicated secret. A string of information that can uncover an awful truth. Her opportunity to uncover this depends on whether she can get a way in, work for the hospital and get solid proof herself.

The Character

The character Jodie plays is rather troublesome and takes a completely different identity –  her friend, Alison Sutton.

Jodie seemed at ease in her role – she was a natural, and could adapt her acting beautifully to the situation. She was able to be bewildered when Alison Sutton was faced with A&E for the first time and could even grasp Alison’s quick learning of complicated medical knowledge and procedures.

The Flaws

The plot was interesting, but not totally believable. Ok… so the lack of security, passport and NI number checks when being employed. The alarm bells should have been ringing when she seemed totally overwhelmed when doing basic tasks, that she (her fake identity) is qualified to do.  Many viewers caught on to this and took to this on Twitter.

Last Note

It was an informative and slightly unrealistic first episode, but now we know the basics, we can not get into the corruption! A well played role so far from Jodie Whittaker,

Star Rating

I would give this review 3 stars and would recommend you to watch the episode if you like these mysterious, undercover thrillers!
