Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE DOUBLE is a drama about a man who finds his life being taken over by someone who looks exactly like him, but with a very different personality.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder language such as 'hell', 'Jesus', 'damn', 'crap', 'ass' and 'bloody'.

Suicide

There are scenes depicting characters committing suicide by throwing themselves from buildings, but this is presented in a stylised manner, with only brief images of bloody injury in the aftermath. There is also a suicide attempt by overdosing on pills, with verbal references to the character trying to kill themselves, but the act takes place off screen.

There is also brief moderate violence, moderate sex references and a passing drug reference.
