Viewers were divided over the Doctor Foster finale

But EVERYONE made the same joke about it

Last night saw the series two finale of BBC thriller Doctor Foster, with Suranne Jones’ troubled GP finally making some sort of peace with her ex-husband Simon (Bertie Carvel) when she prevented him from killing himself.


But in the final moments of the emotional episode, there was one last twist when it emerged that the pair’s son Tom (Tom Taylor) had run away to start a new life, leaving Gemma bereft and alone at the series’ close.

Many fans were blown away by the episode, taking to Twitter to extol its virtues (as well as the series as a whole).

However, not all responses were so positive. In fact, it seems that just as many viewers thought the finale was absolute codswallop.

And this divide was reflected in’s own Twitter poll, which saw 40 per cent of viewers loving the finale and 60 per cent describing it as “terrible”. Truly, this is a divided nation.

Still, amongst all these differences of opinion it’s good to know there’s one thing that could unite everyone – making the same awkward joke about how there should be a Doctor Foster/The Missing crossover for series three, as the Fosters and Baptiste track down the errant Tom together.


See? We’re not so different after all.
