Spellbinding: Evanna Lynch in Personal Space

Radio dramas can often be... I’m trying to think of a kind way of putting this. Oh, what the hell: boring is the word we’re looking for. You know the sort of thing: a couple in late middle-age called John and Mary have a dreary conversation about some medical issue or their concerns that their daughter’s relationship mightn’t be going so well.

That’s not always the case — and it’s certainly not what to expect from Personal Space, an outstanding black comedy aired on Drama on One (Radio 1, Sun, 8pm). Mairéad Kiernan’s play starred Evanna Lynch — your children will know her from those Harry Potter movies — as Helen, an odd and lonely young woman with a brash housemate called Lola (India Mullen), a thing for red coffee cups and an unending monologue rattling inside her head.
