The latest crime drama from the BBC has already had fans glued to their screens to uncover the plot of thriller You Don't Know Me.
The new mini-series, created in association with Netflix, has three more episodes to air over the coming weeks but all episodes are available via the BBC iPlayer - and some viewers have binged the series already.
The drama stars actor Samuel Adewunmi in the lead role as alleged murderer Hero. Viewers might recognise him from the recent ITV drama Angela Black, where he played mysterious character Ed/Theo.
In this drama, Samuel plays Hero - a young black man on trial for the murder of a young boy. There’s stacks of evidence against him – including blood under his fingernails, and firearms residue on his skin. However, he insists he is innocent and argues that the murder is linked to a young woman called Kyra who he fell for, who subsequently went missing. The drama features flashbacks alongside courtroom snippets as viewers try to piece together whether Hero is as innocent as he claims.
The four-part drama aired the first episode last night in the Sunday 9pm prime time slot, and viewers were quick to share their thoughts on the programme.
One viewer praised lead actor Samuel Adewunmi for his acting skills as the drama unfurls. They said: "I caught the first ep this morning and can't wait to watch the next one, I'm gripped and yes Samuel is captivating telling his story."
Another viewer said: "Was so tempted to binge watch #YouDontKnowMe last night on iplayer. That first episode was 🔥".
Another viewer shared: "I've got it recorded. Am going to watch it this week. Can't wait!"
However, not all viewers were keen to wait another seven days for the next episode to air. As all four episodes are currently available on the BBC iPlayer, some keen watchers have already seen every episode.
One eager viewer said: "I’m still here thinking about the ending of #YouDontKnowMe."
Another shared their thoughts, as they said: "The best thing I’ve watched in a while, still not happy about the ending though🤷🏻♀️."
The second episode of the BBC drama will air next Sunday at 9pm and continue for the next three weeks until the four-parter concludes. However for those that can't wait, episodes are available already via the iPlayer.
