Overview About Series
At the same time, as a spectator, it is difficult to empathize with Alison’s anguish over her finding. While it’s easy to see why Alison falls for Major Alec, her troubles while he’s abroad, such as financial difficulties and suspicions, are unrelatable. Even when Alison discovers terrible discoveries, the emotions she feels do not initiate empathy from the audience. Given that the series was acted in and produced by Ruth Wilson, it may have become a one-dimensional drama about a mystery guy. His secret life was portrayed solely through the eyes of one of the women impacted, Alison Wilson. In reality, Alec’s second ‘wife’ Dorothy’s son Mike makes his discoveries at the age of 72, coming to the devastating discovery that his father, whom he had assumed died a hero during WWII, had abandoned them.
