Tv Season Info
Set in the Lake District, Deep Water desperately wants to be Big Little Lies with wellies, but after one episode it has a long way to go.
The three leads do their best. It's not their fault the script is littered with the kinds of clunkers that bring you out of the lakes and back to the channel changer.
On paper, this has all its ducks in a row. But it doesn't dig deep.
It's deeply erratic, with a script from Anna Symon veering between delightfully spiky and baffling nonsense.
See also Broadchurch and The Bay, but really its closest stablemate is The Loch, a formulaic lakeside confection from a couple of years back (Alastair Mackenzie, who plays one of the prats in this, can claim the distinction of being in both casts).
