‘Divination has taught us that falling into temptation can be dangerous’ – Ian Hyland

The third series of The Split is finally available to watch on BBC iPlayer, but Ian Hyland fears it will be the last thanks to the No Fault Divorce Law coming into force this week

Many things can make us feel angry and frustrated with our political leaders. This week, however, one particular issue has dismayed me.

No, not a proposal to sell Channel 4 – although the arguments for that idea contain as much water as the average drink order at a Westminster bar.

I’m talking about the No Fault divorce law, which came into force this week and has effectively paid off for any lingering hope I have that the BBC can change hearts and expand my faith. My guilty pleasure, The Split.

Well, nothing would be as exciting as a drama about a family firm of divorce lawyers if most of their cases were wrapped up in two minutes.

So this third series will definitely be the last, and I’d best enjoy it while I can. If Monday’s opening is anything to go by, it won’t be too difficult.

It started with her divorce attorney Ruth Defoe (Deborah Findlay) launching her podcast with the following question: “Is there ever a good divorce?” You might be tempted to answer, “Yes, if you’re a one-time home recipient.” However, things are not always so simple as divorce lawyer Hannah (Nicola Walker) finds out. She seems to be in the midst of a favorable divorce from Nathan (Stephen Mangan) but has just realized that she doesn’t really want to sign the papers.

If you think that means a happy ending might be imminent then you clearly haven’t been following Nicola Walker’s career very closely.

Things ended pretty grim for her character in Unforgotten last year and, after Nathan dropped a stunning new girlfriend bomb, I couldn’t see the sad form book here.

If you can’t wait to find out, you can enjoy the entire series on iPlayer right now.

I? I will do it week by week on the proper phone.

Well, if The Split has taught us anything, it’s that engaging in temptation can be fraught with danger.
