As we’ve previously reported, BBC Two’s Paula will star Olivier-award winning actress Denise Gough, Victoria star Tom Hughes and Spooks’ Owen McDonnell. By way of an update, the BBC has now released a longer look at the upcoming revenge drama.
Paula‘s tale of a brief encounter that ends in violence is written by Conor McPherson, in his first original television series and will be directed by Alex Holmes (Coalition, House of Saddam).
Gough commented last year: “Having worked with Conor McPherson on stage I am so excited to work with him again on this amazing project. He’s written a script that I know all of us involved feel very privileged to be part of bringing to life. Paula is a brilliantly complex woman and I can’t wait to play her.”
Here’s the new trailer, which hints and the tension we’re in store for when the show begins its three episode run on May 25th.
