The Bay viewers left 'terrified to sign for parcels' after harrowing murder scene in series 2 premiere

THE Bay viewers have been left 'terrified to sign for parcels' after a harrowing murder scene in the series two premiere.

The ITV drama returned last night with Morven Christie back in the role of family liaison officer Lisa Armstrong.

*Spoilers ahead for the first episode of The Bay series two*

Despite being demoted and on probation after her actions in series one, Lisa still finds herself involved in a new murder case when a man is killed on his doorstep.

Stephen Marshbrook (Stephen Tompkinson) was shot dead at point blank range by a delivery driver, with the only witness being his 10-year-old son.

Viewers were horrified by the circumstances of the grisly death, with one writing on Twitter: "#TheBay has made me scared to sign for parcels now."

Another added: "nice one itv i’m never collecting a delivery again #thebay."

A third tweeted: "8mins in never trusting an amazon delivery driver again #TheBay."

Meanwhile a fourth wrote: "I’ve never watched #TheBay before it should’ve come with a warning don’t answer the door to a delivery man while watching this program or any other time for that matter."

Elsewhere, Lisa struggled with her demotion, which had also caused her to move out of her house and into a flat.

Speaking to The Sun's TV Mag, Morven said: "She’s in a really precarious financial position, she’s had to move out of her house and into a flat because she’s been demoted and is on probation so she’s not allowed to work as a FLO, she’s doing community policing.

"It’s all very tricky and I think in that particular work environment, police don’t think much of each other when somebody goes against the rules.

"I think that’s a big thing for Lisa, trying to gain back respect from her peer group, her work group, because she was very respected and really good at what she did, so she’s in a really difficult position.

"She’s trying really hard but it’s really tough for her."

The Bay continues on Wednesday, January 27 at 9pm on ITV.
