Denise Gough in Paula

Here’s a sneak peak at Olivier-award winning actress Denise Gough in Paula, BBC Two’s new revenge thriller by playwright and filmmaker Conor McPherson.

This is McPherson’s first original television series and takes the destructive fallout in a young chemistry teacher’s life, after her one-night stand with a good-looking wrong’un. There is an instant spark of attraction between the two as they become locked in a dance of mutual destruction. There can be only one winner and their actions will take a terrifying toll on all those around them.

Also stars Tom Hughes (Victoria, The Game) and Owen McDonnell (Spooks, Single-Handed). This three-part drama directed by Alex Holmes (Coalition, House Of Saddam) will be broadcast on BBC Two later in the year
