You Don’t Know Me viewers described the show’s ending as “complete and utterly disappointing”.
The drama, which was inspired by the criminal justice system, tells the story from the perspective of a murder accused — but fans aren’t happy with the conclusion.
The four-part series left viewers with a lot of questions as they attempted to understand whether the protagonist was telling the truth.
Hero, who hails from South London, is in the dock for murder.
Despite there being physical evidence against him, he is adamant that he did not murder a young boy.
The first installment tells how Hero fired his own barrister during the court case so that he could represent himself.
Hero was determined to present his own version of events to explain how the law-abiding car salesman is in the frame of murder.
Despite an entertaining story that captivated viewers, many criticized the show’s ending, with some even calling on the BBC to “shut down”.
One viewer angrily said: “A really terrible ending to a fantastic series. Why waste it? It was great.”
Echoing his comments, someone else questioned: “Was it just me who thought the ending was completely disappointing for a great TV show? I needed to shut down.”
Meanwhile, a third said: “You don’t know me is the best thing I’ve seen in a while.
“I’m still not happy with that ending, though.”
Criticism for the show came almost immediately in the first episode when viewers ridiculed it as “atrocious” and “wrong”.
Many took to Twitter to complain that the show was not following the exact protocol of the court.
