Viewers who watched the adaptation of the TV series “Boiling Point” suffered emotional wrecks as the thrilling drama unfolded.
BBC One’s culinary drama follows on from the film of the same name, which hit cinemas in 2021.
It explores the stressful experiences chefs face while working in the kitchen of a fictional high-end restaurant.
And viewers of the show feel the tension as their stress levels also reach boiling point.
Viewers flocked to X, formerly known as Twitter, to share how intense they found the show.
One person complained and said, “No, this stress is relentless. Where is the light and the shadow?”
Another joked: “Here we go again to the stress test for my blood pressure. Boiling Point turns a crisis into a drama.”
A third overwhelmed viewer said: “I finally started Boiling Point tonight and am going to bed stressed and hungry.”
However, others were more positive about the spin-off show.
One fan shared that the last part left her in tears but she didn’t want the series to end.
She said: “Another great episode, nice to see more characters living outside the kitchen, but I felt sorry for Emily that she seemed so heartbroken tonight that it becomes an issue. Hannah Walters makes me cry on a Sunday night, next time sad this time.” Week it will be over.
A second agreed the show served its purpose by making viewers so emotional, adding: “I’m a wreck. What a show, so many themes – phenomenal drama.”
Acclaimed actor Stephen Graham is one of the creators of the series and also plays Andy Jones, who was the chef in the film.
