Yup, our new fave show A World Of Married Couple, also known as The World Of The Married, is a remake of the British show Doctor Foster! According to writer Mike Bartlett, the series is inspired by the Greek myth of Medea which is about a wronged wife who poisons her husband's new bride and kills their children.

The BBC One TV series was first aired in September 2015. If you want to watch the Doctor Foster series before A World Of Married Couple, be prepared for spoilers because the plot and key events are super similar!
