Sinister ITV drama The Sister gripped viewers once again this evening – but some fans abandoned ship after the “constant mumbling” made it difficult for them to understand what was going on.
Inspired by Luther author Neil Cross’ book The Burial, The Sister slowly what really happened that fateful night 10 years ago when two men buried a body in the haunted woods.
Viewers watched in the very first episode as Bob, played by Bertie Carvel, stepped back into Nathan’s (Russell Tovey) life to remind him of what they had done.
Nathan went on to marry the sister of the girl he buried, which is sure to catch up with him.
While another commented: “Not sure I can stick with #TheSister on #ITV can’t hear what @russelltovey is mumbling for starters and all this jumping back and forwards in time just too confusing.”
A third wrote: “I was really looking forward to #TheSister but that first ep was pretty boring. Also couldn’t understand half the things Russell Tovey said due to all the mumbling… Disappointing!”
“Why is he mumbling all the time? I’ve had to put the subtitles on #TheSister,” another questioned.
One commented: “Getting a bit silly and the mumbling of both Carvel and Tovey is rubbish …. #TheSister.”
*The Sister returns tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV
