Ordinary Lies returned with a new BBC series but viewers had mixed opinions about the first episode

Ordinary Lies – a drama following colleagues and friends as their small lies spiralled out of control – was a big hit for BBC One last year with its first series…and its back.

Writer Danny Brocklehurst placed the first series in and around a textiles factory but this time the action moves to the call centre and warehouse of a sports sales company with an entirely new cast.

This series will contain six episodes, each a self-contained hour-length drama featuring a different character from the workforce, and this kicked off tonight with Con O’Neill playing sales manager Joe who suspects his wife of cheating on him.

Here’s what the viewers thought…most were really impressed.

But for some, it didn’t quite match up to the first series.
