DI Ray viewers all say the same thing as new crime drama premieres on ITV

DI Ray viewers were all left saying the same thing as the new police drama made its debut on Monday night.

The ITV series stars Bend It Like Beckham's Parminder Nagra as DI Rachita Ray, who is promoted to a role in the homicide department.

However, after learning the case she is investigating is a "culturally specific" homicide, she begins to suspect that she's been brought on to the investigation for her ethnicity rather than her ability.

As she starts to look into the death of the victim, Imran Aziz, she realises there's more to the murder than her colleagues first thought. 

It also becomes clear that DI Ray has her own personal mission as she begins to learn about her own identity.

Soon into the episode, viewers took to Twitter to praise the new drama, which is produced by Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio.

While a third remarked: "What an amazing first episode of DI Ray! Gripped from the get-go. Already can't wait until the second instalment. Gripped from the get-go."

Many viewers also praised the cast, referring to Parminder and Gemma Whelan as stand-out performers.
