Pembrokeshire Murders fans disturbed by Keith Allen’s John Cooper portrayal

Viewers were left horrified as they watched Keith's terrific performance as the series came to an end.

They took to Twitter, as one wrote: "Keith Allen is horrifyingly good, isn't he?"

While another wrote: "Got to say. Not gonna be wanting to meet Keith Allen anytime soon. Like. Anytime. Soon."

"What a powerful ending to Pembrokeshire Murders and a great performance by Keith Allen who is chilling and creepy in equal measure", penned a third.

During the gripping final episode, Detective Superintendent Steve Wilkins (played by Luke Evans) finally found the evidence he needed to arrest Cooper.

They discovered the victims blood on a pair of Cooper's khaki shorts which he previously said belonged to him.
