drama / 9.00pm / BBC2

a dif­fi­cult-to-watch but ex­cel­lent episode tonight as trou­bled teenager Mary (Alice En­glert, Jonathan Strange

& Mr Nor­rell) spi­rals even fur­ther out of con­trol. Mary’s ever-sup­port­ive dad Pyke (Ewen Les­lie) has been look­ing for­ward to the school’s fa­ther-daugh­ter dance for years, but when Mary turns up with her stoned boyfriend Puss (David Den­cik), the cou­ple end up mak­ing a scene and a dev­as­tated Mary runs off into the night. On Mary’s eigh­teenth birth­day, Puss re­veals his sin­is­ter in­ten­tions for his girl­friend, plus a day out at the beach ends in a vi­o­lent en­counter be­tween Puss and Robin (Elis­a­beth Moss). Shock­ing, bleak and bril­liantly acted, this series is turn­ing out to be 2017’s best drama.

An evening of con­fronta­tion for Puss and Mary
