THE SISTER viewers have been left fuming that they’ve “wasted four hours” as the finale drops after each episode gets “more stupid than the last”.
After weeks of hype and anticipation, the series starring Russell Tovey, Bertie Carvel and Amrita Acharia has left some fans feeling underwhelmed.
Tonight saw the finale of ITV’s The Sister, based on the book The Burial by Luthur creator Neil Cross.
And to say some fans were left disappointed would be an understatement. Taking to Twitter viewers voiced their thoughts and feelings on the supposedly creepy and sinister four-part series.
One wrote: “This series is dragging hope there is a really good ending otherwise it’s hrs of my life I won’t get back #TheSister”
“I’m not gonna lie, I am not blown away by this. Expected to be a lot more gripped! Hoping the ending will be a massive twist! #thesister,” added another.
While a third ranted: “Normally these things have a stupid ending, this has been stupid from the start and keeps being stupid.#thesister”
The series began promisingly with a nail-biting and sinister opening sequence that saw Tovey’s character Nathan about to swallow a handful of pills with a neat pint of vodka.
However, after he’s stopped in his tracks by a press conference from missing woman Elise Fox’s family.
Then, all of a sudden, the episode jumps forward seven years into the future and Nathan is actually married to Elise’s sister Holly [Amrita Acharia].
Last night the third instalment of the show aired and fans couldn’t help but draw comparisons between the show and The Sixth Sense thinking there would be a big twist and the characters were all ghosts.
The Sister, the brainchild of Luther creator Neil Cross and based on his book The Burial, tells the story about what really happened that fateful night 10 years ago when two men buried a body in the haunted woods.
Although the events of the novel are fictional, the author has revealed how a moment from his life inspired his book.
At a press event for the new ITV drama, Neil said as a teenager he believed he killed someone.
