Grace viewers all have the same complaint as show airs graphic sexual violence and death before 9pm
GRACE viewers were left furious during last night's episode, as the show jumped straight into graphic scenes.
The ITV drama – which stars John Simm, Richie Campbell and Rakie Ayola – airs at 8pm every Sunday.
Despite the TV watershed – which ensures shows with graphic or more adult themes aren't shown until 9pm – this episode of Grace's first 15 minutes featured some shocking moments.
The opening scenes showed shocking sexual violence, which took viewers by surprise.
And prior to that, the episode started with a shot of a man who had hung himself in black latex gear following a drug binge.
Audiences took to social media to share their anger at the decision, with many stating the episode should've aired at least an hour later.
Whilst many were overjoyed to see DSI Roy Grace back on their screens, others couldn't shake how disturbing the episode was.
One viewer wrote: "Man hanging from the rafters in a g**p costume is a far cry from Last of the Summer Wine on a pre-watershed Sunday night…"
Another agreed: "8pm and they’ve shown a man hanging, I always thought things like that were shown after 9pm? #Grace @ITV."

They continued: "Yeah it seems a bit full-on for before 9pm. Luckily daughter has gone to bed as wouldn’t want her to see it."
Similar comments followed, as one wrote: "Ummmm… not sure Grace is suitable pre-watershed fare @ITV. Fetish, drugs.
"Oh yeah, and a hanged body. Sex games gone wrong? At 8pm on a Sunday?!"
One viewer claimed it was "clearly in breach of the Watershed rules".
However, others were fed-up with those who were moaning, with one social media user writing: "Jesus, it is hardly explicit content. Stop moaning about the watershed."
