Is Duncan done for?

After seeing the powerful and emotional scenes at the end viewers came up with a theory.

They thought that Donna’s letter to her solicitor – which she asked Duncan to post – will implicate him in her suicide.

And thus taking revenge on him from beyond the grave.

It would be a fiendish plan, but one that isn’t beyond Donna’s grasp.

How did viewers react to episode 5?

One viewer said: “Donna’s revenge from beyond the grave on Duncan was that letter then #shetland.”

Another wrote: “Soooo, Donna is going to leave everything to Duncan then make it look like he killed her? Duncan you should have listened to Jimmy [face-palm emoji].”
