Fans flooded the comments section with praise, as one said: "The acting was superb! Huge respect to your stunt double though!"

A second said: "Wow! Thank you for capturing this/sharing."

"Oh my goodness ! I held my breath the whole way through that! What a man! Perfect stunt double for any future role eh," said a third.

While a fourth commented: "An amazing series. A huge well done to everyone involved. Probably the best tv series ever."

To viewers at home, they watched as the criminal was taken away by ambulance following the disturbing scenes.

Cawood later received a text on her mobile that said: “TLR dead, hospital just rang.”

But because viewers never saw him die, and he was still breathing after the scorching, many speculated it could be a plot twist for a possible fourth series.
