Innocent fans distracted from gritty ITV drama by ‘too loud’ background music

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Fans of gritty ITV drama Innocent were left distracted from the compelling on-screen happenings by the 'too loud' background music, as the inaugural episode of series two aired on Monday night.

The programme opened with Katherine Kelly's character Sally being released from prison after being found not guilty of the murder of a 16-year-old pupil.

She was also accused of sleeping with him before the youngster was killed, but was never charged with that offence.

But as the dramatic scenes unfolded against a stunning Lake District backdrop, viewers took to social media to raise their concerns about another matter entirely – the audio.

"Why is the music so loud and the talking so quiet?" one fan moaned on Twitter, while another questioned: "What's with the music #Innocent, quite loud in parts!"

Someone else said: "So far #Innocent seems great, but the audio doesn't seem like it's been mixed right? Background and ambient is super loud but dialogue is super low?"

But a little later on in the episode, one fan tweeted: "The sound seems to have improved #Innocent."

Elsewhere, Sally went to the school she was formerly employed at to ask for her job back, but was fiercely rebuked by her ex-boss – despite not being found guilty of any crime.

"The notion of her ever being able to work with children again, it's never gonna happen!" her former boss complained.

"You do know she was never convicted of any crime?" she was rebuked.

And Sally wasn't taking no for an answer, as she insisted she had not slept with the underage pupil.

"I want my job back, or I'm gonna get seriously legal on your arse!" she warned as she stormed out of the office.

Fans are convinced they might already have worked out the true culprit of the murder – Sally's ex-husband Sam.

"Do you know what was the worst thing, worse than being considered a sex offender in a prison full of male guards?" Sally asked him as they faced off across the table. "You thinking I'd ever be unfaithful to you."

He apologised for not believing her at the time, saying he was "so sorry" for thinking she was guilty.

But fans are convinced it's just an act.

"Hubby is definitely acting suspiciously!" one wrote on Twitter.

While a third urged Sally: "Honestly, your ex husband isn't worth your time!"
