In Plain Sight fans desperate for finale so evil Peter Manuel can ‘get his comeuppance’


IN Plain Sight fans are desperate for the finale so evil Peter Manuel can “get his comeuppance”.

The second instalment of the three-part Scottish drama aired tonight on ITV and certainly didn’t disappoint.

In Plain Sight fans CAN’T wait to watch the finale of the three-part series tomorrow

In Plain Sight – which stars the likes of Line of Duty’s Martin Compston and The Suffragettes’ Joanne Thompson – follows the story of serial killer Peter who managed to kill eight people in Lanarkshire, Scotland, in the late 50s.

He was later hanged for his vile crimes in 1958.

The series premiered back in 2016 and left some viewers very unimpressed when they realised that the programme was a repeat.

However, others have got themselves hooked on it for a second time.

Lanarkshire detective William Muncie is one step closer to finding out the person behind the crimes and viewers can’t wait until Peter is caught.

One fan wrote on Twitter: “Roll on tomorrow when the cocky wee s***e gets his comeuppance. Hopefully #InPlainSight.”

Another said: “Can’t wait to see him get his comeuppance! #inplainsight.”

Meanwhile others have praised Martin, who has taken on the role of Peter, for his amazing acting skills.

A third tweeted: “@martin_compston, fantastic acting in this ! What a truly evil specimen he was …. I’m gripped #inplainsight.”

A fourth commented: “Got Chills #inplainsight @martin_compston is a brilliant actor.”

Another said: “What a great actor @martin_compston is. He’s such a nasty piece of work in the brilliant drama #InPlainSight. He’s giving me the creeps!”

Not everyone is happy with the drama being broadcast again, and in particular the relatives of three of Manuel’s victims.


Stuart Reid, whose father Robert was haunted by the deaths of his sisters, Marion Watt and Margaret Brown, and teenage niece, Vivienne, recently said: “All we want is for someone to stop this horrible decision.”

He told The Daily Record: “I was 12 at the time, I will be 77 at the end of this month – it’s terrible that this is still going on.

“Me and my brother David are the last of my dad’s family. We don’t want to see it again.”

The finale of In Plain Sight will air tomorrow on ITV at 9pm.
