Viewpoint is a popular police procedural drama and the TV series first aired on ITV in April 2021. The five-episode season was cut short following allegations made against the show’s star, Noel Clarke. Express.co.uk has all you need to know about how the last episode ended.
How did Viewpoint end?
Viewpoint made its debut on ITV on April 26, 2021 and each of the remaining episodes proceeded to air on consecutive days.
On the evening of the fourth episode, it was revealed DC Martin Young actor Noel Clarke had been accused of sexual harassment by a number of former colleagues.
The fourth instalment continued to air as planned but the following day, ahead of the finale, ITV made the decision to pull episode five.
Instead, they uploaded the finale to the ITV Hub and it was made available for a couple of days so fans could finish the series.
In the final episode, Martin had hoped Carl Tuckman (Dominic Allburn) would get information out of Kate (Catherine Tyldesley), but things took a dark turn.
Kate had been the main suspect and police believed she murdered teacher Gemma (Amy Wren) out of jealousy.
Gemma had been having an affair with her husband Carl, so Kate had a motive.
As it turned out, Kate had not been the one to kill Gemma, although Carl had tried to get a confession from her.
DC Martin Young then overheard Kate confessing to the murder of Carl’s first wife Anna a decade ago.
Martin honed in to arrest her, but Greg stabbed him, thinking he was someone else.
Martin was not fatally wounded and he managed to recover in hospital. Once he was out of hospital he went back to Zoe’s (Alexandra Roach) home.
He went to water her plants for her but found some blood, and soon discovered a secret code she had left behind.
He used the code to get into the neighbour’s basement and found a freezer that contained Gemma’s body.
Martin, who had fallen for Zoe, was in shock and confronted her. She admitted Gemma had come to her after discovering she was being spied on.
The two women had an argument and Gemma threatened to report Zoe to social services, and Zoe pushed her down the stairs by accident.
With no idea what to do next, she quickly cleaned up the crime scene and disposed of Gemma’s body.
Martin and Zoe were able to enjoy one last meal together before Martin called the police and Zoe turned herself in.
The series ended with Martin crying in the street as he lost the woman he loved.
Fans had mixed opinions about the ending, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One said: “Unusually satisfactory ending for an ITV drama #Viewpoint.”
Whereas another said: “@ITV enjoyed viewpoint but ending weak, yet again female culprit no previous then an ‘accident’ but we’re expected to believe she would put a body In a freezer and carry on regardless?” [Sic]
Viewers were also torn over ITV’s decision to pull the final episode from the network, with many feeling as though it should have aired.
At the time, ITV said it had a “zero-tolerance policy to bullying, harassment and victimisation” following the claims against Clarke.
They said: “In light of the very serious nature of the allegations against Noel Clarke raised by 20 women in the Guardian’s report, ITV has decided it is no longer appropriate to broadcast the final episode of the drama Viewpoint on ITV main channel this evening.”
Viewpoint was available on The Hub until May 2, meaning it is no longer available to watch on any ITV platform.
