Marie’s in the spotlight as the questions get more personal. This has become as much Marie’s story as it is Paul’s. Her life is slowly falling apart in front of her as more and more evidence mounts up against her husband. She even finds herself having a conversation with Rebecca, the former fan of Paul now accusing him of raping her, who passionately tells her: ‘I’m not lying’.
Now, Marie is facing questions about her sex life with Paul from his defence team, who want to prepare her in case she’s asked to take the stand. ‘I may have married a monster,’ she admits in one emotional scene. Julie Walters gives a hugely moving performance as Marie in this deep, dark and thoroughly enthralling drama.
