Cheat

Critics Consensus

Claustrophobic and compelling, Cheat's well-matched leading ladies energize a suspenseful script to create a compulsively watchable game of cat and mouse.

Critic Reviews for Cheat Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (7)

A devilishly entertaining, slightly repellent, and entirely addictive thriller.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

I would have to watch it again to see if it made sense, but my strong hunch is that it didn't, quite.

I enjoyed 90 per cent of it, it cheered up a grim week and honestly? If there were a second series, I'd watch it.

Every exchange between them, thereafter, torques the relationship and gives Windsor a chance to rise, in pitch-perfect increments, to the occasion of creating a chilling character of utterly believably threatening proportions.

I wanted to throw a shoe at the television and scream, 'That. Would. Not. Happen!' It was marvellously played by Katherine Kelly and Molly Windsor...this is no reflection on them, yet I only kept going back for more to see just how silly this would get.

It nicely subverted expectations by not being all about adultery, though there was some of that, instead concerning itself in the main with honour and honesty and all that ethical motherhood and apple pie stuff.

Mar 18, 2019 | Full Review…

A four-part English thriller that'll make you gasp.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Cheat has two very good lead performances and is just short enough to tells us that the storytelling won't take the viewer down blind alleys.

Nov 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Even for an ITV miniseries, Cheat was a tad overblown (put it this way: Rose made Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction look reasonable), but there was an omnipresent sense of menace, and great acting, particularly from Kelly and Windsor.

Mar 18, 2019 | Full Review…

A passable iteration of the sort of pulpy drama about middle-class domesticity gone wrong...

Jul 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Whereas its other current offering - BBC1's Baptiste - is still meandering around and getting nowhere slow after four episodes, Cheat got stuck in straight away.

Jun 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Cheat's cleverest, well, cheat, is having its two protagonists facing off in what looks like a prison visiting room.
