However, although the sleuth seemed to be in mounting danger, viewers at home couldn’t be happier, with many calling it the best Strike story so far…
I'm totally in love with #Strike. #CareerofEvil is Brilliant! Wish there was a new episode every night. Best Detective series I've seen in years! Writing, Characters, Story addictive as is the chemistry between #StrikeandRobin. Thanx J. K. Rowling, Robert Galbraith and BBC One!
Viewers wondered why the story couldn’t be expanded to more episodes.
Enjoyed tonight's #Strike, I remember feeling that #CareerOfEvil was the most dramatic and tense of all the books so far. A great adaptation but I just wish there were more episodes of each story as there are so many great scenes left out.
Can’t believe I’ve waited so long for the #CareerofEvil#Strike to air … only to find out it’s only two episodes and they’re a week apart. Wtf?! I *expletive* need #LethalWhite NOW!! (@jk_rowling send me a finished chapter? Just for my eyes!👀).
