Psychological thriller Born To Kill began on Channel 4 on Thursday night – leaving viewers struggling to sleep after its horrifying final scene.
Starring Jack Rowan as a psychopathic teenager with an innate urge to murder people, the drama has already led some critics to suggest it may be “too dark for its own good”.
Viewers were totally gripped by the first episode – hailing great performances from Rowan and Daniel Mays, even if they did have to watch them from behind a pillow…
