TRIGGER Point made its eagerly anticipated debut on Sunday night – but some viewers weren’t happy about one fine detail.
Soon into the episode, Vicky McClure was seen facing off against improvised explosive devices, leaving viewers on the edge of their seats – but that didn’t last for long.
Quickly into proceedings, McClure’s character – named Lana ‘Wash’ Washington – is seen consoling a civilian with an explosive vest attached to him.
But before the action could unfold, viewers watching on ITV were swiftly taken to an advert break, with some claiming the move was “killing the drama”.
tomando a Gorjeo, one person watching from home vented: “The constant advert interruptions really don’t help you get into this. Maybe this should have been on the BBC.”
Echoing their comments, alguien más dijo: “This is why I’m happy to pay the TV licence fee because it means at least you get no adverts. Talk about killing the drama.”
Un tercio, Entretanto, was unhappy with the lack of action, agregando: "Bien, two advert breaks and hardly any action. Maybe they should have called this ‘Trigger Bore’ instead.”
The hotly anticipated six-part series – Jed Mercurio’s first since Cumplimiento de su deber el año pasado – looks to give viewers an insight into the heart-stopping world of counter-terrorism policing.
Ditching her bra and foundation for the role, Vicky said she wanted to make a statement that “you don’t really need makeup” while playing her new character.

“I think it’s important to strip things back and be comfortable,” said the 38-year-old.
“quiero decir, my body isn’t fully toned – people will see the real Vicky, as well as Lana – I’m not hiding anything.”
Trigger Point continues next Sunday on ITV at 9pm.
