Manhunt: The Night Stalker is back on ITV for a second series and viewers have been left feeling sick by the horrific crimes committed.

Martin Clunes plays DCI Colin Sutton, who is hunting down the man who attacked hundreds of vulnerable and elderly victims over 17 years.

He was seen visiting 'Nancy' in hospital, as she gripped his arm and said: "He interfered with me, you know."

DCI Sutton was seen appealing for more officers: "I've got an 80 year old woman waiting for an HIV test. I've got a war hero terrified to tell officers what he did to him.

"Thirty rapes, attempted rapes and sexual assaults and over 100 burglaries."

Viewers tweeted, horrified: "Five mins in to this episode and I already want to puke. He's going around raping OAPs? Oh my god, no thanks."

"It's actually heartbreaking what happened to the OAPs. How can someone be so sick to do such vile, nasty things?" added another in disbelief.

"Sickening stuff," said one viewer.

"This is so well dramatised but it's harrowing stuff. That someone could prey on defenceless pensioners makes me sick to my stomach" ranted another.

Viewers were full of praise for the show though too.

"Manhunt The Night Stalker on ITV is SO good. It's absolutely sickening and heartbreaking but so good. I'm gripped and am praying they catch him," said one.

The show is based on the DCI’s real life diary on the case, and writers used his notes.

Delroy Grant was eventually arrested and charged.

Wednesday night's show saw DCI Sutton and team spread the net further, but missed him on the first night although they suspected he carried out a burglary nearby.
