The One is a British science fiction television series based on John Marrs’s 2016 novel of the same name. It was created by Howard Overman and was released on Netflix on 12 March 2021.
Rebecca Webb (Hannah Ware) is the CEO and face of The One, an app that promises to match you to the love of your life via DNA analysis. As she states in a TED-style talk, she was tired of mediocre dates and sex, and she thinks that matching via DNA is the absolute best way to ensure yourself a fantastic relationship. She has done it herself, trotting out her husband Ethan (Wilf Scolding) as proof.
The One has become a huge company extremely fast; it was a germ of an idea two years prior when Webb took advantage of research from her coworker and friend James Whiting (Dimitri Leonidas), who was studying why DNA in ants determines why they work in groups. The two of them were partners in the business, but a year prior, Whiting left and disappeared, as she tells reporter Mark Bailey (Eric Kofi-Abrefa).
Mark and his wife Hannah (Lois Chimimba) met the old-fashioned way, and they seem to be in an extremely happy relationship and have volcanic sex. But Hannah sees these ads for The One and wonders if there’s someone even more suited for her out there, despite being happy with Mark.
DCI Kate Saunders (Zoë Tapper), who with her partner, DS Nick Gedny (Gregg Chillin) have been investigating the case of the skeleton found in the Thames, has been using The One, and she got a match: A woman in Spain named Sophia Rodriguez (Jana Pérez). They have fantastic chemistry on their video calls but when Sophia comes to London to meet Kate and never makes their rendezvous, Kate finds out something horrible happened.
We flash back to two years prior; Rebecca has been in the “friend zone” with her flat mate Ben Naser (Amir El-Masry), a zone he wants to get out of. James is afraid that she’s going to break his heart, and Rebecca doesn’t disagree. But, two years later, she finds out that Ben, whom she filed a missing persons report on the year prior, is the skeleton that was found in the Thames, she doesn’t collapse in grief, she flashes back to the night he died. The first thing she does is get in touch with James.
