Grace: ITV viewers angry at pre-twist sexual abuse Brighton News

VIEWERS of Grace’s second series wondered why it was allowed to air before the turning point.

Following the release of the ITV crime drama, audiences were quick to take to social media to air their views on the opening scenes.

The episode, which aired at 8 p.m. Sunday, featured an opening scene depicting sexual violence.

Grace, set in Brighton, is an adaptation of Sussex author Peter James’ international bestsellers, which have sold 21 million copies worldwide.

While some fans were thrilled to see the return of Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, played by John Simm, others thought the program should have aired after the turn.

The watershed starts at 9 p.m. According to Ofcom, material unsuitable for children should not be shown before 9 p.m. or after 5:30 a.m.

In the new episode, Roy Grace is called to a crime scene after a man is found hanged in a fetish outfit.

One viewer tweeted: ‘The man hanging from the rafters in an ag**p suit is a far cry from the last summer wine on a Sunday night before the turn.

Another added: “An episode of Grace aired on ITV tonight at 8pm. It was about an evil gang making snuff movies with lots of graphic scenes of violence. What happened to the watershed?

Actress Stacey Guthrie also weighed in, saying: “Ummmm… not sure Grace is suitable for pre-watershed ITV fare. Fetish, drugs. Oh yeah, and a hung body. Sex games gone bad? At 8 p.m. a Sunday.

However, not all viewers felt the same way.

One fan tweeted: ‘For anyone complaining about Grace’s content, there were warnings given by ITV before it started. Just use the red button if you’re too scared.

Another added: “If you go to #Grace right now you will see how many Karens there are in the UK. Jesus is hardly an explicit content. Stop complaining about the watershed.

ITV has been approached for comment.

Comprised of four feature films, Grace will then air on Sunday, May 1 at 8 p.m.
