Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday
Angela Black viewers were left unimpressed with the final episode of the gripping ITV drama.
The six-part series came to a dramatic climax on Sunday night but fans at home were not happy with the ending.
It was revealed last week that Angela's (Joanne Froggatt) abusive husband Oliver Meyer (Michiel Huisman) had framed her.
He tricked his wife and the police in order to gain sole custody of their two sons.
At the start of the sixth episode Angela concocted with Theo Walters aka Ed Harrison (Samuel Adewunmi), the man who had pretended to be a hitman at the start of the series.
Viewers got the find out exactly how Angela managed to get revenge on both Theo and Oliver but some were left underwhelmed.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "What was that?! Gutted with the finale. Poor quality after some great episodes. Felt rushed at the end. Disappointed."
Another added: "Disappointed at the ending of Angela Black"
A third person moaned: "Well Angela Black could have been just one hour long not the six."
While a fourth person said: ". Poor writing and no clue as to where it was going. And then it ends like that?! Awful."
However, some fans begged bosses for a second series to find out more about the mysterious Angela Black.
One viewer tweeted: "Are we going to get a series two of Angela Black to see Olivier's trial?
A second social media user agreed: ""Loved Angela Black – brilliant acting by you and all the cast. Series two?"
"Angela Black is a bit like Marmite isn't it! I absolutely loved it though. Hope there's another series" ,said a third fan.
At the start of episode six, Angela took her two sons out of school, deciding to run away and rebuild their lives far away from Olivier.
However, Olivier managed to catch up with them at a Welsh campsite, after the boys disobeyed Angela and turned on her mobile phone which Olivier had been tracking.
Alone once again, Angela put on her detective hat and managed to find Craig Mantle, an old associate of Theo Walters who had also owed him a favour just like Olivier had, this time in exchange for putting a man behind bars.
She later tracked down Theo and struck a bargain with him, offering her flashy engagement ring in exchange for help in her revenge plot.
Angela then broke into Mantle Motors, which Craig had signed over to Theo as his “favour”, and she began trashing the place with a crowbar.
Elsewhere, Theo convinced Olivier to help him deal with Angela, and they both drove to Mantle Motors – where Angela and Theo turned on Olivier, locking him in a car boot.
When they let him out, both were covered in blood and the police were just arriving.
As a final touch, Angela tossed the crowbar into Olivier’s hands, framing him for GBH (grievous bodily harm).

Both Angela and Theo claimed that Olivier had beaten them in a fit of jealousy, and he was arrested.
Later, in his police interview, he was shown CCTV evidence of him choking Angela, which occurred in episode five.
After the police arrested Olivier, Angela phoned up Theo, who was packing up his things.
She revealed on the phone that she had found Craig, and subsequently tracked down the gang member who had been put behind bars thanks to Theo’s false testimony – and told them everything.
While still on the phone, there was a loud banging on Theo’s door, as Angela told him that his past had finally caught up with him – before she hung up.
