What time is Paula on TV?
Paula continues on Thursday 8 June at 9pm on BBC2.
What’s the drama about?
The three-part thriller is written by Irish playwright Conor McPherson, his first TV series. It centres around Paula, a young woman stuck in a rut: she’s tangled up in an affair with a married man, has a strained relationship with her dysfunctional family – and she’s got rats in her basement. When she calls in handyman James to catch the vermin, her life is plunged into chaos as he turns out to be a very dark character indeed.
