We really have to give it up for the streaming services and cable networks keeping us rich in limited series based on intriguing beach reads. Never more of a trend than after Big Little Lies struck gold, we’re now spoiled rotten with relatively bite-sized miniseries filled to the brim with mystery and suspense, like Netflix’s Behind Her Eyes, a six-hour treat to devour in one sitting.

Based on the book of the same name by Sarah Pinborough, Behind Her Eyes stars Simona Brown as single mother Louise, who finds her life thrown into chaos when she begins an affair with her boss, Dr. David Ferguson (Tom Bateman). However, things get even messier for Louise when she befriends his wife, Adele (Eve Hewson). Soon, the love triangle turns dark as secrets bubble to the surface.

Behind Her Eyes premiered on Netflix in February 2021 and arrived as the perfect slow-burning limited series for viewers eager to sit exclusively on the edge of their seats. Critics met the British limited series with mixed reception, but the mystery of the psychological thriller proved a minor viral hit and online conversation piece. If you’re looking for your next limited series to binge-watch, definitely add the mysterious Behind Her Eyes to your watch list.
