Meanwhile, other audience members picked up on another detail in the second episode which showed the local authorities taking a while to turn up to the hotel where the shooting incident took place.

"Erm… No police yet…?" commented a fan, as another echoed this, tweeting: "Episode two of #Crossfire one thing that's irritating me the most, where are the police? Not one officer, truck, machinery in sight. So they haven’t heard anything that’s going on. BAFFLED. Truly baffled."

A third also noticed the plot detail, quipping: "Just watched #crossfire the hotel is nice like the corridors. Thought, the police took a long time to show up, was the helicopter being repaired or were they having a siesta?"

As the synopsis explains, Jo's world is turned upside down when gunmen "turn a slice of paradise into a terrifying heart-breaking hell."

It continues: "A story of survival and resilience, Crossfire is an edge-of-your-seat nail-biting thriller yet also emotional, intimate and relatable. With the unsuspecting holidaymakers and hotel staff forced to make monumental split-second life or death decisions, the consequences will linger long after the final shots are fired."
