BBC viewers warned over new controversial series starring Game Of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon

The newest BBC drama has made a huge splash online, however, not everyone is happy about it, with some viewers issuing warnings to those who haven't seen it yet.

Wolf, which stars Game of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon, debuted on Monday (31 July) and is filled with twists and turns. The six-part series - which airs on Mondays and Tuesdays until 15 August - is based on the novels by late crime writer, Mo Hayder. The gruesome tale follows an unfortunate family who find themselves the victims of a psychopath’s cruel games.

The cast also includes Ukweli Roach, Sacha Dhawan, Owen Teale, Sian Reese-Williams, Juliet Stevenson and Annes Elwy.

All the episodes are available to stream on iPlayer and those who have binged all of them have raised the alarm about one aspect of the show in particular - the ‘next time’ compilation at the end of the first episode.

One viewer complained: “As usual, the BBC gives away too much in the ‘coming up’ clips at the end,” one frustrated viewer wrote, adding: “Luckily managed to grab the remote & switch over.”

They weren’t the only one who found the ‘next on’ feature frustrating, as one person wrote on social media said: “I had to turn away from the “Coming up” trailer at the end though, because WHY WOULD YOU SPOILER IT LIKE THAT??!!!!! I’m already fully on board, there was no need for it.”

Another Twitter user wrote: “Anyone been watching #wolf on BBC? I can’t quite work out if it’s a comedy sketch or everyone’s just a bit weird?!”

Someone else complained: “#Wolf #bbc How do the bbc manage to get it so wrong so many times? What started as an intriguing, slightly dark drama quickly turned into a 'trying too hard to be darkly humorous' pile of crap. A very bad taste pile of crap actually. Trying. Too. Hard. To please everyone.”

“This is awful," a Twitter user complained. "The writing has no respect for the audience, considering them consumers of any old guff.”

Wolf, BBC thriller series, is absolutely awful. It’s supposed to be shocking, & dramatic. It’s just a lot of contrived, drivel, so boring.”

However others defended the show, with one viewer confessing: “Am I crazy because I really liked wolf???"

"Definitely will not be sleeping tonight after watching that," another fan said about the thriller.

All episodes of Wolf are available to stream now on BBC iPlayer.
