Paul’s case finally reaches the courtroom as he faces his accusers for the first time. The TV star is desperate to take the stand, to put his side of the story across, but his legal team are dead against the idea. Marie has always been Paul’s rock, but her faith in her husband is finally beginning to waver.
Dee can also sense that Marie is wondering if Paul is, after all, the evil man his accusers claim. Whatever decision the jury makes, Marie knows that her marriage is in crisis and that she has to decide whether she wants to be with Paul.
This has been a disturbing, dark and brilliant piece of television, with Robbie Coltrane putting in an amazing performance as Paul.
