One of the stars, Stephen Mangan, took to Twitter to praise the BBC for releasing all the episodes on iPlayer. The actor, who has also starred in comedy shows such as Green Wing and Episodes, wrote: "Never been in a show that's dropped all in one go before. Fascinating to watch the staggered response as people binge on #TheSplit. Thank you for all yr [sic] kind messages. Loved making it." Many replied to Stephen's tweet praising his performance and the programme. One user wrote: "I loved the first series but this one beat it, surely there is another series in it.
