Dark Heart continued tonight with the third episode of the “new” ITV series.
In tonight’s episode, DI Will Wagstaffe (played by Tom Riley) and his team investigated the mysterious death of a young nurse on the London Underground.
While CCTV revealed the victim fleeing an invisible assailant, forensics found a DNA link to a missing teenager presumed dead for seven years.
Aided by his new team, DI Will unearthed a bond of secrets and betrayals which brought him straight into the dark underbelly of the city.
However, as some viewers will know, the show was originally released years ago, with the same programme airing with tweaks, new scenes and edit changes.
For those that didn’t know, the episode took a confusing turn when characters seemed to dramatically age between scenes.
Those tuning in at home instantly took to social media following the show.
One viewer tweeted: “This #DarkHeart is it a new case every week?! Fuming if thats the case I wanna know what happened to the fella last week…”
“Has there been a time jump? I’m sure Staffe’s nephew was just a little kid last week. #DarkHeart,” posted another.
A third added: “How can this be a different story? I really feel like last weeks story hasn’t finished!! #DarkHeart.”
“Harry seems to have grown a lot since last week @ITV #DarkHeart,” wrote another.
A fifth said: “Has this skipped a few years #darkheart how’s Harry that old now head’s blew off.”
However, other viewers were impressed by tonight’s episode.
One viewer tweeted: “Absolutely addicted to Dark Heart!! #darkheart.”
“What I REALLY love about #DarkHeart is that it’s so VERY different from the formulaic / predictable ‘fodder’ that we’re ROUTINELY fed with!” posted another.
A third added: “A few ITV dramas have been slow lately the same cannot be said of #DarkHeart @ChrisLangWriter brilliant again.”
Dark Heart, the six-part ITV series, will continue tomorrow with episode four.
A synopsis for the episode reads: “As the team delve deeper into the poisonings, it quickly becomes clear that those responsible have a powerful influence.
“The pressure builds for DI Wagstaffe to find buried links between Sofie Cerna and Nick Kyriacou.
“But when the investigation veers close to home, he finds himself making his sister’s fiance Paulo an offer that could have far-reaching consequences.”
Dark Heart continues tomorrow on ITV at 9pm.
