Cheat

Series Binge Premiere on Acorn TV and AMC+ Monday 8 January

Inspiring some of the brightest young minds in the country, Dr Leah Dale has always prided herself on her academic integrity. Exceptionally hardworking but scrupulously fair, Leah gives everything to her work, and expects the same from her students.

So, when undergraduate Rose Vaughan, submits a suspiciously top-grade essay, Leah is quick to call her out. But what begins as a seemingly open and shut case of academic deception soon spirals out of control. Frustrated that her Head of Department appears won over by Rose’s charm, Leah becomes consumed with exposing Rose as a cheat, causing tension in her already fractious homelife with Adam.

But there’s more going on than meets the eye, as Rose takes Leah’s challenge as a personal affront. Aided by Ben, a college porter completely under her spell, Rose pursues a course of retaliation against her professor – but who is telling the truth?
