Wolf viewers 'switch off' after just one episode as they rip into 'painful and confusing' new BBC crime thriller | The Sun

BBC viewers have blasted the new crime thriller Wolf for being "painful" and "confusing" watch forcing them to "switch off."

The new thriller failed to spook fans after the first episode aired on Monday night, leaving fans feeling underwhelmed.

Based on Mo Hayder's Jack Caffer novels, the opening scene introduces DI Jack Caffery (played by Ukweli Roach) who is fixated on his neighbour.

His obsession comes as he believes he’s responsible for killing his 10-year-old brother in the 1990s.

Meanwhile, there’s another plot unfolding as the wealthy Anchor-Ferrers family becomes the victims of a psychopath’s cruel and twisted games.

But viewers were left feeling confused by the storyline.

Taking to X (recently changed from Twitter), one viewer said: “I tried watching #Wolf but I can't get into it the first episode is slow and I'm confused with what's happening.”

Another wrote: “Nope, just too weird. I'm out.”

A third penned: “This feels like a painful adaptation of books I no longer wish to read.”

The cast of Wolf is led by The Midwich Cuckoos star Ukweli Roach, while Doctor Who’s Sacha Dhawan and Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon both also take on major roles.

The rest of the main cast is filled out by Sian Reese-Williams (Line of Duty), Juliet Stevenson (Secret Invasion), Owen Teale (The Rig) and Annes Elwy (The Light in the Hall).

The books have been adapted by Suspicion writer Megan Gallagher, while the series has been produced by Hartswood Films.

The official synopsis for the series said: "DI Jack Caffery is a young detective beset by nightmares.

"Obsessed with the neighbour he believes murdered his 10 year-old brother in the '90s, Jack finds himself trying to right the wrongs of others – but at what cost?

"In an isolated house in Monmouthshire, the wealthy Anchor-Ferrers family find themselves the victims of a psychopath’s cruel games, trapped and terrorised.

"When the two narratives collide, it’s a thrilling, nail-biting, and deeply disturbing race against time."

Wolf airs on Mondays and Tuesdays on BBC One at 9pm or watch all episodes on BBC iPlayer now.
