BBC1’s new medical drama Trust Me started on Tuesday night, starring Jodie Whittaker as a nurse who steals a friend’s identity and poses as a doctor – and the majority of viewers loved it.
They loved how tense it was…
Wow I'm exhausted watching #TrustMe, very tense but blooming brilliant, can't wait for next next one!

They loved Jodie Whittaker…
So #TrustMe is excellent, Jodie Whittaker has once again proven to be the most endearing person ever, but this show is so stressful.

And they loved the new Doctor Who pretending to be a doctor…
If this was the BBC's interview to see if Jodie Whitaker could carry a drama by herself she's PASSED ! Trust her-she's THE Doctor #TrustMe

But one thing they didn’t love was all the lens flare…

#TrustMe needs more lens flare – said nobody ever

Must be hard to work in that hospital with all the lens flare going on #trustme

To clarify, lens flare is that effect where streaks or circles of light flare up on the screen. It was originally caused by accident, thanks to tiny impurities in the camera lens but has since been adopted by certain filmmakers as a way of adding gravitas and mystery to a shot – especially in sci-fi and especially by a certain JJ Abrams, who has even apologised in the past for his excessive use of the technique…

But based on viewers’ reactions, even the Star Trek director might have balked at this…
Whoever shot Trust Me on the BBC clearly just discovered the Lens Flare filter for the first time. Beyond annoying. #trustme

Can someone in the hospital in #trustme please turn the lens flare down by around 80%. This is near unwatchable.
