The Fall opens to gory hospital scenes, but it's a little too realistic for viewers

The Fall returned for series three tonight, but fans were a little disorientated by the change in theme.

Known for being an incredibly tense serial killer drama, the BBC Two programme changed things up for the start of the episode as doctors battled to save villain Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) who was shot at the end of the last series.

Various other characters were also injured in the series two shoot-out, but viewers started to feel a little like they were tuning in to a hospital drama instead.

Some viewers felt the medical scenes were a touch over the top for the storyline.

Others’ plans to enjoy the new series over dinner were dashed.

In fact, the graphic detail all got a bit too much.

And those who weren’t disgusted were a little…well…

However, there were other things to appreciate about the scene.

And as ever, fans were a little confused as to whether it’s alright to fancy Jamie in this context or not.
