If there wasn’t enough drama on-screen in Rellik and Liar, the overnight ratings have added even more tension and suspense.
ITV came out the clear winner with Liar pulling in 4.86 million viewers against the BBC’s Rellik, which attracted 3.6 million viewers.
Liar was watched by another 450,000 on ITV+1.
According to the majority of RadioTimes.com readers, ITV’s Liar starring Joanne Froggat and Ioan Gruffudd proved the more gripping, enjoyable and understandable of the two.
Rellik by contrast, a story of a serial killer told in reverse starring Richard Dormer and Jodi Balfour, proved a little trickier for viewers to get to grips with.
