One to watch on catch-up: Payback

ITV’s new crime thriller series Payback starts off with accountancy husband and wife team Lexie and Jared Noble, with a picture-perfect life. But, one of them, at least, is up to their necks in dodgy business.

We see something you don’t see very often on a TV drama – the inside a chartered accountancy practice! And, while lots of the reviewers weren’t happy with all the “difficult-to-get financial stuff”, if you stay with it, it does become a riveting thriller with a proper climax at the end!

As Max says in ‘The Producers’ film of 1967: “Accountancy must be a noble profession as they have ‘Count’ in their name!”
