Tuesday on BBC One, you’re going to have a wonderful collision course of great actors on Trust Me season 2 episode 1. Just Alfred Enoch and Richard Rankin alone is well worth the price of admission.
While Rankin was on hiatus from Outlander last year, he took part in the latest season of the medical series. Trust Me itself is undergoing a vast makeover after season 1 featured new Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker. Yet, at the center of it remains tough questions about identity, about medicine, and about reality itself. If you haven’t seen the series before, we don’t think you need just a tremendous amount of context to dive right in — you can just pick things up tomorrow (provided you’re in Britain) and then enjoy the show.
As a good jumping-off point, though, we recommend checking out the official synopsis for the premiere:
Jamie McCain (Enoch) is recovering from a spinal injury that has left him paralysed. He faces a new enemy when patients on his hospital ward start dying unexpectedly around him. Jamie believes the deaths are suspicious, but, unable to move his, investigation is dangerous and difficult. With everyone in the department hiding a secret, catching a culprit seems like an impossible task.
But with Jamie’s behaviour becoming increasingly erratic, is the threat real or imagined? When he arrives on the spinal unit, he’s angry, uncooperative and refuses to talk about his injury. But what has really happened to Jamie, and is he a man we can trust?
If this isn’t enough, we’ve also got a sneak preview below that we consider to be quite worthwhile, one that gives you a pretty healthy taste of intrigue about Jamie’s mental state and precisely what he is struggling. That includes both internal and external factors, including a certain someone in Danny who may be either a part of the problem or a central component in the solution. He recognizes the dangers of being where Jamie is, and he claims that he’s got some evidence of some unusual deaths.
How serious should you take this character? It’s a tad early to go into this, especially without even getting a chance to see the episode or all of the cast just yet. Trust Me is a fairly short series, but we anticipate a lot of good stuff being wrapped into a short period of time. It’s at least a nice way to get Enoch back on TV for those who miss him on How to Get Away with Murder, or to satisfy any Rankin cravings with Outlander likely off for many more months.
How to watch in America
There is no firm US season 2 date that we’ve seen as of yet, but the first season of Trust Me is on Hulu. Hopefully, this batch of episodes will eventually find its way there.
