McDonald and Dodds is the latest ITV drama to hit our screen, with its first two-hour premiere airing on Sunday night. With an all-star cast, the two-part series focuses on newly appointed DCI Lauren McDonald (Tala Gouveia) and DS Dodds (Jason Watkins) work together to untangle the lies surrounding the shooting of a homeless man in a empty mansion owned by local industry titan Max Crockett.
But as the the new drama got underway, fans were already picking the show apart, noticing little elements that could have been done better.
They were quick to note the “poor” quality of the CGI involve in a car scene, where McDonald and Dodds were having a heart to heart about the job.
Film buffs will know that car scenes are generally filmed in a studio with a green screen to mimic the idea tat the actors are actually driven.
But, while the pair could be seen chatting in the vehicle while driving through town, viewers didn’t believe the background reflected real life.

Taking to Twitter, they shared their views and unfortunately for the show, there were others who felt the same way.
One kicked off the complaints with: “They’ve got to sort these awful car scenes out. Looks like they’re filmed in a cupboard #mcdonaldanddodds.”
Another added: “Thats a really convincing car journey.......#mcdonaldanddodds.”
“The CGI in the car is so poor it makes this production 3rd rate #mcdonaldanddodds.”
Others went on to criticise the show as a whole, unhappy with the two-parter.
