How did viewers react?

Viewers responded in stunned fashion, coming up with some of their own theories.

“Best news ever,” one said. “I can’t rewatch his last episode as it upsets me so much.”

“The best two detectives are back, maybe he faked his death to go undercover,” another asked.

“I can’t watch the episode where Richard is killed, for me it didn’t happen he just got his wish to go back to London.”
