We don’t know if we’ve rambled on about this enough now or not, but two new dramas from the same writers started Monday at 9pm. Competing for audience attention Rellik on BBC1, a six-part crime drama told in reverse aired opposite Liar on ITV, a six-parter about a man accused of rape but the audience are left wondering if what they were seeing was the real story.
The overnight and consolidated ratings will follow but viewers took to twitter to share their thoughts on both shows.
An hour of my life I’ll never get back. Though it felt like more than an hour.#rellik

Eeerrrrr 6 weeks of this weird reverse shiz; I’m all for a bit of clever but this is just ridiculous. No thanks BBC. #rellik

Very disappointed with #Rellik – I found the format concept irritating. But far worse, awful vocal & sound production.

ITV’s Liar appeared to go down better.
