Deadwater Fell fans raging over major police blunder in David Tennant scene

Deadwater Fell aired its third installment this evening, investigating the grisly arson attack that killed a mother and two children.

Unfortunately, certain viewers were distracted from the storyline when they spotted a serious blunder in the police interrogation room.

David Tennant's character was interviewed by a policeman who was one of his close friends before the crime happened – something that would usually go against police protocol.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer said: "I know it's only a TV show….but I hate it when they do things that are so unrealistic in a drama. You would not have a police officer who is a friend of the accused in the interview FFS."

A second agreed: "Why is his 'mate' (whose wife slept with him) allowed to interview him?"

While a third remarked: "A policeman friend of a possible suspect questioning him? Don't think so."

Tonight's episode saw Police Sergeant Steve Campbell, played by Matthew McNulty, put Tom Kendrick (David Tennant) behind bars.

Steve forced an unreliable witness to give a statement, desperate to get Tom banged up for the murder of wife Kate (Anna Madeley) and their two daughters.

Last week, he found out that Tom had slept with his longterm partner Jess Milner (Cush Jumbo) in a fit of passion – leaving him furious.

Catching him out in the police interrogation room, he asked: "Is everything you said here a lie Tom?"

Locked up, Tom was desperate to escape, while Steve's lies started to fall apart around him.

Things started to unravel later on in the episode, as Steve's witness buckled, revealing he'd given a false statement.

Dismissing Steve, fellow officer D.C Gemma Darlington (Laurie Brett) said: "Maybe it's best you just take a bit of a break?"
