Storyline

Ellen tries to juggle her new baby with her return to work and her investigation into Paula. She finds evidence that her boss was having an affair but her only lead is Paula's ten-year-old child and a former colleague of Paula's, neither of whom want to speak to her. Paula discovers Ellen's investigation and engineers a humiliation from the client and a warning visit from social services. Ellen eventually confronts Paula and forces her to confess what she's been hiding. Written by Left Bank Pictures

Twisted, slow to start, but the ending is worth the wait.
19 April 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The second part carries on in the exact same way as the first part, pacing identical, deliberately slow, with the obvious antagonism between Ellen and Paula allowed to develop. It is a little padded in parts, but it's hopefully all building towards an explosive conclusion. The first fifty minutes are worth getting through, as there is a deliciously twisted scene where the pair finally place their cards on the table, with Ellen pressing Paula for answers.

The acting is superb, credit to all performers, I adore morven Christie, such a talent, able to do anything. McClure is just magical in this, her smiles are beautiful, but sinister and menacing. The second part has contained plenty of purposeful stairs, and seething glances, but I don't want any more of those in the third part, after two fairly slow episodes, I'm hoping for a rip roaring conclusion.

Glasgow is certainly looking marvellous.

7/10
