Is anyone watching this? Martin Compston from Line of Duty being very Scottish and a bit threatening. A surrogacy which is illegal and going wrong, with a mysterious 18 year old. It's probably a bit far fetched but the acting is good (although the accents can be a bit much). The house the couple live in is amazing.

I have been watching with the subtitles on and enjoying it.
It is Martin Compston's real accent.

I'm also enjoying it.

Yes, me too. Terrific acting and plot-lines, gorgeous locations and that overall sense of dread that makes a good series into an excellent one. Definitely worth watching.

Looking forward to watching the second episode.

Just watched the second episode and it did not disappoint. I have had lunch in Martin’s bar. Martin’s accent is probably more Glaswegian than usual. Anyone recognise Methadone Mick from Still Game?

I wondered if he was Glaswegian, I know that the accent is different to other parts of Scotland.

Martin Compston is from Greenock, so further down the coast from Glasgow.

Thanks Marydoll

I was fascinated by the house too. Apparently it's available for holiday rental (though not at the moment I suppose!). Gripping series.

It is an excellent drama. The actor playing the social worker played a child killer who was given a new identity in a series a while back, possibly last year. It made me wonder if it was written by the same person. Regardless of that I am enjoying it very much.

Jane43 Thu 02-Apr-20 13:02:36

The actor playing the social worker is James Harkness and the drama about the child killer was The Victim. Nicole Taylor wrote The Nest and she also wrote the excellent Three Girls about grooming of young girls in Rochdale.

I enjoyed he first two. Will watch the series. There are 4 episodes I think?

Pittcity Sun 05-Apr-20 22:20:11

The plot thickens. That was a big baby for 25 weeks and it might not even be theirs......?

Bridie22 Sun 05-Apr-20 22:22:34

Enjoying it, but another one that had to put subtitles on !

paddyanne Sun 05-Apr-20 23:04:35

The house is in Cove near my daughters home .Views are to Gourock and Greenock and in the distance Arran.Thats the exact view from my daughters living room .

Baloothefitz Sun 05-Apr-20 23:31:06

Yes pittcity I thought Kaia looked big for 25 weeks & the baby certainly did.I think like you that the baby won't be Emily & Dan's.Love the series.

Alexa Sun 05-Apr-20 23:38:57

I love the way all the characters are good people, except that man, don't know who he is, who is a sort of business associate and who suggested an act of God would be a good solution.

The biggest tragedy is Kaya's earlier boyfriend's death poor wee soul .

Marydoll Sun 05-Apr-20 23:54:55

paddyanne, thanks. DH and I were disagreeing about where it was. I was convinced it was Greenock I could see across the water. He said I was imagining it! 😁

grannyqueenie Mon 06-Apr-20 00:05:22

We’re enjoying it too and loving the Scottish accents. No need for subtitles for 2 expat Glaswegians!

Marilla Mon 06-Apr-20 00:07:01

The view exactly across from the house is close to Ardentinny.
The house is in Cove on Loch Long.
The loch meets the River Clyde and then you see Gourock and Greenock.
I used to live in Cove and travelled on the ferry from Gourock to Kilcreggan. It is a beautiful place to live.

Where ever it is I want it!!!
Great plot development. Whose baby is it? What will happen about the sewer? The acting is amazing.

lilydily9 Tue 07-Apr-20 19:00:01

I love all the twists and turns and the acting is superb. I'm guessing the baby's father is Kaya's ex boyfriend, the young lad that drowned. Can't wait for the next episode!

trisher Wed 08-Apr-20 10:03:52

I'm wondering if Kaya also had an unsuitable relationship with the social worker. They were arguing about something when the car hit her. ???

Calendargirl Wed 08-Apr-20 12:46:19

Only watched last episode last night. If the baby isn’t Dan and Emily’s, wouldn’t it have been picked up when they implanted their egg that she was already pregnant, even if not very far on?
