One Night starring Jodie Whittaker tells the story of three female best friends, their complicated friendships, secrets and a whole lot of history.

The six-part drama featuring the Doctor Who favourite follows the lives of Simone, Tess and Hat by the serene Australian coast (think Big Little Lies backdrops).

“One Night follows Simone (Nicole da Silva) who dreams of being a novelist but can’t seem to make it happen,” writes What To Watch.

“Then, at 40 she writes about the one story she could never get out of her head and it becomes an overnight success.

“However, the secret real-life tragedy that inspired the book also belongs to her childhood best friends Tess (Jodie Whittaker) and Hat (Yael Stone) and twenty years earlier it destroyed the bond they shared. Worse still, now that it’s out in the open it could ruin all of their lives.”

Speaking about her character, Jodie said: "Tess has fought against the memory of this place, and it feels like a weakness to have these fractious friendships seep into her consciousness again.

“She sees the history that she has spent 20 years running away from.

“Simone’s book is like dropping a grenade. Tess feels as if it's a betrayal because there's a commodification of her trauma. But it’s also about exploring the 'ownership' of this event that has been challenging for all three friends and you don’t know whose memories are accurate. The journey Tess goes on is brilliant."
