Psychological thriller The Secrets She Keeps, starring Downton Abbey's Laura Carmichael, has got viewers talking all for the same reason. The Australian drama, based on a true story, was described by viewers for having a predictable start, but many are now praising its plot as the show has gone on and have even binged all six episodes already.

Others echoed the view that the programme is improving over time. "The way the secrets she keeps only gets good at ep 5 & 6 and now it's a serve," quipped a third user. While a fourth simply wrote: "The secrets she keeps gets better with each episode," along with a shocked-faced emoji. Episode three saw a dramatic turn in events which saw Agatha (Laura Carmichael) implement her devious plan to shatter Meghan's (Jessica De Gouw) whole world.


The change in view comes shortly after TV lovers were seemingly less than impressed with its "obvious" beginning. After episode one, one person stated: "The surprise at the end of ep 1 #thesecretsshekeeps was obvious about 2 minutes in," while another agreed, stating: "That was quite good and pretty watchable, apart from the plot twist you could see from space. #TheSecretsSheKeeps."

The six-part thriller tells the story of Agatha Fyfle and Meghan Shaughnessy who live very different lives in Sydney, Australia. Both women are seemingly pregnant and due on the same day, and they both hold explosive secrets they're trying to conceal.
