Editorial Reviews

Linda (Suranne Jones), an ex-cop turned sex therapist, is pulled into the seedy world of fetish and S&M when her ex-lover, Angie (Eva Pope), seeks her advice on a sordid murder case involving auto-erotic asphyxiation. When another body is discovered – this time one of Linda’s clients – both her professional and personal life is put at risk in this sizzling new mini-series from Kay Mellor (Coronation Street, The Chase).

DVD Extra:
"Strictly Confidential: Behind the Scenes" Featurette

5.0 out of 5 stars in treatment February 8, 2008
America is likely watching "In Treatment". I certainly am. But if you want to really get some therapy, Strictly Confidential serves up a plateful of twists, turns and surprises. Where the HBO series is dry, "Confidential" is packed with "wet", touching upon taboo after taboo, fetish after fetish (S & M to bisexuality and beyond). It even throws in some murder to add to the spice.

If you enjoy the likes of Sex & the City, Footballers Wives, Desperate Housevives, etc., Srictly Confidential will definitely strike a chord for you. And, the super all-star cast plays it right all along the way.

3.0 out of 5 stars It started out clever... February 11, 2008
Strictly Confidential started out on a high note; two sex therapists who work in Manchester with patients from every walk of life. One of the therapists used to be a cop (this was never believable) and when she finds out her husband is impotent, she has an affair with her brother-in-law who just happens to be her co-worker. Their work as sex therapists was entertaining as they dealt with every issue as adults, offering insight and understanding and there was some fun in the editing room as the patients were shown at home with their significant others.

What doesn't work with this show was the murder angle. One of female therapist's patients kills herself (or not) and the therapist's former female lover/detective is investigating the crime. The story quickly unravels as to who, if anyone, killed the patient, who's having an affair, who's had an affair, and who knows who's having/had an affair.

Hopefully someone will revisit the basic premise of this show. It's not a complete letdown but it was close.

2.0 out of 5 stars Soap with Sex July 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
Pedestrian. unbelievable and disappointing - a let-down from start to finish. (No pun intended!) This mini-series appears to be written purely for sensationalism and is certainly not up to the standards previously demonstrated by writer Kay Mellor's earlier series such as Band of Gold, Playing the Field and, more recently, The Syndicate. Unlikeable, self-absorbed characters spouting drivel and playing sexy - plus the weakest of plots. The show doesn't know whether it is a murder mystery, a social documentary or a soap opera. If titilation and pretty faces are your thing, you may find this entertaining. However, after watching Strictly Confidential you may regard celibacy as a viable option!!!

Koch Vision and BBC presents "STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL" (2006) (300 mins/Color) (Dolby Digital) --- KOCH Vision brings to the forefront all six hour-long episodes of the groundbreaking TV series --- The acclaimed series from BAFTA Award winning writer Kay Mellor ("Coronation Street," "Band of Gold," "The Chase") originally aired in the U.K. in 2006, and stars "Coronation Street" alums Suranne Jones, Tristan Gemmill and Eva Pope, as well as Cristian Solimeno from "Footballers' Wives." --- The 2-DVD set contains the complete series and also fully exposes the program with a no-holds-barred 50 minute "behind-the-scenes" featurette --- Follows several themes of love, fetish, sex and murder --- Extremely saucy, plus pushes primetime boundaries within your television set.

Under the production staff of:
Roberto Bangura - Director
Keith Boak - Director
Yvonne Francas - Producer
Kay Mellor - Screenwriter / Show Creator
Kate O'Riordan - Screenwriter

Our story line and plot, In the enticingly intriguing series, celebrated for pushing the envelope with its complex sexual themes and introducing audiences to one of the few bisexual characters in British TV history, Linda (Suranne Jones) plays a ex-police officer-turned-sex therapist who shares an office with her brother-in-law (Tristan Gemmill).
