Still dis­gusted

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

In re­ply to J Yeat­man of Darfield (TVG, Nov 4-10). I def­i­nitely did not “block out” any­thing in the Paula se­ries and I’m sorry you gained that im­pres­sion. I come from a scary child­hood and it’s al­ways in my head, but like Linda of Christchurch I wanted to see how it ended, and fool­ishly hoped it would be a rea­son­able and re­al­is­tic con­clu­sion. Not so. It was a hor­ror end­ing that didn’t solve any­thing and I sim­ply had trou­ble pro­cess­ing that. Still do. I also wanted to watch the act­ing of Denise Gough af­ter read­ing the ar­ti­cle about her, and thought she did a great job in the role. It was the story end­ing that I was dis­gusted with. I will never block out or con­done vi­o­lence against women or chil­dren. I am a sur­vivor like so many oth­ers. Pre­vi­ously Dis­gusted (Christchurch)
