The Woman in the Wall: Official trailer
The Woman in the Wall viewers were left in tears as they listened to an unreleased Sinead O’Connor song which played out across the countryside in the BBC drama’s final instalment.
Protagonist Lorna Brady (played by Ruth Jones) and Detective Colman Akande (Daryl McCormack) teamed up after discovering of the 298 children at the Kilkinure convent, 208 were stolen and sold. Only three had official burial records, leaving 87 children unaccounted for.
After finding out who was responsible for selling children, viewers discovered Lorna placed Aoife Cassidy (Fiona Bell) inside the walls of her home.
She thought she’d killed Aoife while sleepwalking or while she was intoxicated, but Aoife was very much still alive as Lorna rebuilt the wall.
It transpired that Aoife suffered from catalepsy, which is a rare side effect of untreated epilepsy triggered by high emotional stress.

Colman begged Lorna to say she was not mentally sound when she concealed a body in her walls, but the latter wanted to accept her punishment and was subsequently arrested.
She was later put behind bars, but a Colman visited her at the very end of the series with a surprise.
Colman had tracked down Lorna’s long-lost daughter Agnes and set up a video call with her which is how the drama ended.
