Doctor Foster: Viewers have slammed the season finale of the gripping drama [BBC One]
Doctor Foster has been one of the most gripping dramas on television over the last few years.
Last night, series two of the hit series came to an end, leaving fans in shock.
But the shocking events of the finale, which saw Gemma (Suranne Jones) save ex-husband Simon (Bertie Carvel) from taking his own life, only to find their son Tom (Tom Taylor) had fled, certainly wasn’t the only scandal of the season.
We look back on the most eyebrow-raising moments from the series as fans ponder over the shocking alternative ending and wondering if Doctor Foster series three is in the pipeline.

Suranne surprised fans from her Coronation Street days when they saw her in an entirely new light in this role.
Which of course included some very graphic sex scenes, like the moment Gemma seduced her cheating ex into having hate sex.
Fans were shocked by the scenes, taking to Twitter to express their surprise.
One comically wrote: “Am I watching Doctor Foster or Fifty Shades? #DoctorFoster.”

As series two kicked-off, fans began to notice a pattern in Doctor Foster’s drinking patterns.
After an episode in series two when the GP was seen struggling to remain calm as she and ex husband Simon clashed over their son Tom, the single mum returned home to a bottle of wine.
Fans became concerned over lead character Gemma when she opened a bottle of wine and poured it into a large glass before drinking it quite quickly.
Over on Twitter, one viewer wrote: “Never known anyone drink as many fluids in my life! #DoctorFoster.”

“All they do is drink white wine in #DoctorFoster at any time of day,” commented another user of the social networking site.
A third tweeted: “Next time a Dr asks you ‘how much do you drink?’ Say ‘Less than Doctor Foster’ #DoctorFoster.”
Throughout the series, viewers have been shocked at just how much the held-in-high-esteem doctor breaks her medical code of conduct.

Not only did she break doctor-patient confidentiality time and time again — like telling the Parks family Kate had fallen pregnant — but she also abused her power in the community.
Like the time she threatened to burn someone with a lit cigarette and manipulate and leak his medical records, for example. There’e also bribing a patient to follow her husband for a drug prescription and starting up a romantic relationship with a patient.
One person wrote on Twitter: “She cheated, betrayed her best mate, broke doctor/patient confidentiality… & is a hero?”
While another questioned: “Doctor Foster is entertaining. But ridiculously far fetched. Zero regard for ethics and doctor/patient boundaries. Also why no phone locks?!

While a third simply said: “Doctor patient relationship? No no no….”
As the series comes to a close, screenwriter Mike Bartlett has cast doubt over the possibility of a third series, leaving fans disappointed.
