Taking to social media to give their verdict, one viewer said: "Tuned in for Viewpoint and story looks good but it's so far-fetched in the fact that the surveillance team just rock up at the house, start the op with the people still in the flat and copper just chatting with the woman #Viewpoint."
Another agreed with this argument, tweeting: "In all these surveillance type shows I find it hilarious how people apparently don't own curtains... I close mine as soon as it gets dark, sometimes sooner #Viewpoint."
A third wrote: "Already I'm wondering why I always get sucked into these ITV dramas when they turn out unrealistic and far-fetched. #Viewpoint."
