Luther fans were left fuming tonight after EastEnders ran overtime – meaning that they were forced to wait to watch the drama.
Tonight, the BBC soap aired the dramatic showdown between Mel Owen, Hunter and dodgy copper Ray Kelly in the woods.
But viewers switching over to watch the Idris Elba drama were left fuming, despite watching a murder, as they were forced to wait for EastEnders to end.
Flocking to Twitter, viewers vented their frustration at the situation.

Another commented: "Sod off #EastEnders and let #luther start!!"
