Further details

For Alice, Harry and their daughter, Charlotte, moving into their new home should have been a dream come true. But it quickly turns into a nightmare when Alice discovers Harry dead at the bottom of the stairs. Harry designed the smart house, so it's weird and wonderful, and one more disorientation for Alice on top of her sense of loss and abandonment. Alice's beloved partner is no more, and now she can't find the fridge.

Family should be a source of comfort, but Harry's parents, Minnie and Gerry, keep popping round uninvited. Whilst Alice's own parents, Roger and Sarah, only seem to add to her list of problems.

With Harry gone and Alice struggling to cope, Charlotte is forced to bottle up her grief and be the responsible one. Especially when the police turn up asking questions about the night that Harry died. To make matters worse, more unexpected visitors start knocking on Alice's door, and she begins to realise that Harry's business debt wasn't the only secret he kept hidden from her.

Finding Alice review

Finding Alice is a rather gentle affair so far and a charming way to spend a Sunday evening.

Emily Baker, i Newspaper, 17th January 2021

Finding Alice review

A thriller, a comedy, or an episode of Grand Designs?

Anita Singh, The Telegraph, 17th January 2021

Finding Alice review

Thriller, comedy or melodrama?

Adam Sweeting, The Arts Desk, 18th January 2021

Finding Alice review

A decent drama with weirdly pitched comedy about a grieving partner left to tidy up several big messes.

Brian Donaldson, The List, 18th January 2021
