A second person echoed this, writing: "#TheUndoing is so intriguing. Nicole Kidman as always is great. Can't wait for next episode." Meanwhile, a third viewer commented after seeing negative reviews of the show.

They wrote on twitter: "Erm... why are some people [hating] on #TheUndoing? I, for one, have read the book it's based on and while I know for a fact that it's not everyone's cup of tea, the first episode was definitely more engaging in terms of execution onscreen. Give it time, folks!"

The drama is based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's novel

The husband and wife are a wealthy New York-based couple whose world is turned upside down overnight by the occurrence of a violent death and Jonathan's disappearance. Grace is left with the pieces trying to protect their son while being followed by authorities and the media.

Hugh and Nicole spoke about the show in an interview for Marie Claire. Opening up to Hugh about working with him, the Big Little Lies actress told the publication: "Well, I like you. So that was a really easy part.

"Because there was something very relaxed, obviously, because I'm Australian and you're British, we have that… I don't know, it's just a sense of humour. It's good chemistry."

Hugh agreed and Nicole continued: "We talked... I trust you. But that's also part of working together, I think, when you really click, then you sort of sit and you do talk and you share things and you open up.

The Undoing is available to watch on Sky Atlantic and NOWTV.
