DI Ray viewers tuned in to the premiere episode of the new ITV crime drama starring ER’s Parminder Nagra.
The drama follows DI Ray who is investigating a murder that is at first thought to be ‘culturally specific’, but the ambitious detective senses there’s something more at play.
DI Ray heads home after a long day of investigating and soon realises there is a suspicious BMW behind her.
She originally thinks it’s a “k**b head” driving too close behind but immediately realises the car is likely following her.
DI Ray drives home, but before she unlocks the door looks around in concern as she senses someone is watching her.
She quickly gets a knock at the door to find a “suspect package” on her doorstep, and looks up to see the BMW speeding off.
The police soon discovers a burner phone in the package with the finger prints of the murder victim, Imran.
As the tension grew in the episode, viewers watching at home became distracted by the seeming blunder in the plothole.
One fan complained on Twitter: “She’s being followed so she leads them to her home …. not exactly the most intelligent thing for a detective inspector to do surely.”
DI Ray is the new four-part series on ITV and is written by Linha de dever actress and screenwriter Maya Sondhi.
Filming for the crime series began in the Midlands during the Autumn of 2021.

The series is set in Birmingham, Onde DI Ray introduces viewers to Leicester-born Rachita Ray, a police officer who has just achieved the promotion of her dreams when she is asked to join a homicide investigation.
Although it soon becomes clear that the reason for her being chosen for the role was because the murder case is ‘Culturally Specific’.
Despite her hard work and dedication to the police industry, she begins to questions if her heritage rather than her skill set has seen her go up the promotional ladder.
Unwilling to let this get to her, the detective sets out to find the killer and get justice.
Contudo, it’s not as plain sailing as one would hope, and DI finds herself lingering in the world of organised crime.
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that DI Ray has her own personal mission as she begins to learn about her own identity.
O star-studded cast includes Sam Baker-Jones (Damned), Maanuv Thiara (Linha de dever), Ezra Faroque Khan (Melvin Goes to Dinner), Helen George (Call the Midwife), and Peter Bankole (Peaky Blinders) para nomear alguns.
