About

Cath Hardacre is an idealistic, hardworking nurse who dreams of bigger and better opportunities for herself. So when she sees her hospital’s standards slipping, she raises her concerns with the hospital trust. However, Cath is stunned when she loses her job for whistleblowing. In order to provide for her young daughter, Cath is forced to take drastic measures. She steals her best friend’s identity as a doctor and begins a new life in Edinburgh as Dr. Ally Sutton.

Working at an emergency department on the brink of closure, Cath’s induction as an imposter doctor isn’t easy. But it is not long before she starts to enjoy the trappings that come with her new job and Cath soon finds herself falling for fellow doctor, Andy Brenner.

With her dream job and the perfect man, Cath buries herself in her imposter persona. Yet when her old life threatens to shatter her new existence, Cath finds herself going through increasingly desperate methods to cover up her lies.

Will her lack of skills have deadly consequences? How can she be in a relationship when she can’t be herself? How can she keep hold of the perfect life when she is living a lie?

Medical subject matter but not a medical show, Trust Me is a character-led thriller created by prolific screenwriter Dan Sefton.
