Ordeal by Innocence has been dubbed the “best show on TV” as viewers rave about the Agatha Christie adaptation following its debut episode.
The new BBC drama, which was meant to be released in December last year, is centred around the mysterious murder of Rachel Argyll (played Anna Chancellor), a rich philanthropist and mother to five adopted children.
Set at an estate on the Scottish coast, the show kicked off with her lifeless body being discovered, before quickly turning the attention to her seedy family members.
Naturally, the relatives became suspects in Rachel’s murder and viewers soon found themselves gripped as the story unfolded.
Rushing to Twitter to share their excitement about the new drama series, one user wrote: “That was bleeding brilliant.”Related articles

A third said: “Ordeal by Innocence this is going to be my new favourite drama! So hooked first episode! Loving the cast, can’t wait for next Sunday now.”
Others shared their relief about the show finally airing, with one fan writing: “Love Ordeal by Innocent. Worth waiting for!”
“Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence @BBCOne @agathachristie bl***y brilliant! Worth waiting for,” penned another.
Meanwhile, some expressed their dismay at having to wait an entire week to watch the second episode instead of over three days
