Suranne Jones Begins Filming Doctor Foster Series 2

Doctor Foster, written and created by Mike Bartlett, has begun filming its five-part second series. Jeremy Lovering (Sherlock) is on board to direct this next chapter in Gemma’s (Suranne Jones) story.

Mike Bartlett says: “I’ve been astounded by the response to Doctor Foster… We’re now going to tell the next chapter in Gemma’s story. Her life in Parminster may look better on the surface, but as she will discover to her cost, every action has its consequences eventually. No one comes through hell unscathed.”

Suranne Jones adds: “I can’t wait for the audience who invested in these characters to find out what explosive twists and turns Mike has in store. Now we can look into what happens to a woman after divorce, when deceit and revenge have taken their toll. What a gift of a part and a dream to work with Mike again!”

The multi-award-winning first series of Doctor Foster averaged a consolidated weekly audience of 8.2 million, but drew 10.1 million for the finale, establishing the show as the biggest new BBC drama of 2015.
