Preview – Paula

Paula - Denise Gough

The finale of Conor McPherson’s three-part psychological thriller Paula airs on BBC 2 at 9.00pm tonight.

This mini series has had me from the start even though I literally cannot stand Paula (Denise Gough). She is the kind of person I’d walk over broken glass and hot coals to avoid a conversation with – but she probably feels the same about herself and that’s why her life’s punctuated by self destructive behaviour.

Fresh from taking the mother of all beatings last week, Mac tries to recover – but faces fierce repercussions at work. Meanwhile, James is languishing in detention trying to escape his terrifying visions.

Paula – Thursday at 9.00pm on BBC 2.
