Viewers were left feeling “sick” during the latest episode of Liar, when it was revealed that Andrew Earlham was a serial rapist – and Laura Nielson was not his first victim.
Laura (Joanne Froggatt) travelled to Edinburgh to try to find out more about the mysterious death of Andrew’s (Ioan Gruffudd) first wife Mary, and discovered that his first victim had been Mary’s friend Catherine (Dawn Steele).
Things continued to take a darker turn when Andrew broke into the home of DI Vanessa Harmon – the police officer investigating Laura’s case – and spiked her smoothie. Chilling scenes then saw him returning to the house later that night and attacking her.
Viewers were appalled:
Actually felt so sick watching #Liar tonight ? the thought of people like Andrew walking free is terrifying

Meanwhile others were busy weighing up which TV protagonist they hated more – Andrew or Simon from Doctor Foster:
Are you even British if you can't decide who you hate more between Simon from Doctor Foster or Andrew from Liar? #Liar
