‘It’s like torture!’: Happy Valley’s Amit Shah praises BBC for not letting ‘impatient’ viewers binge watch the series ahead of the nail-biting finale

Happy Valley‘s Amit Shah has praised the BBC for not letting ‘impatient viewers’ binge watch the series.

The actor, 41, who plays pharmacist Faisel Bhatti in the show which is transmitted every Sunday, appeared on Friday’s Lorraine ahead of this weekend’s nail-biting finale

He said: ‘The show is like torture, credit to the BBC to release one a week so it created debate instead of people binging it like most shows’. 

However the actor remained tight-lipped about what will happen to his ‘unlikely murderer’ refusing to ‘ruin’ the final episode for fans.

‘I can’t ruin the final – people are so impatient! I can’t ruin it!’

Amit, who joined the smash hit show this series, admitted to host Lorraine Kelly that it was a daunting prospect.

‘When I first read the script I was scared by the size of the show. I was intimidated by it!’.

The pharmacist has found himself in a perilous situation after selling drugs from his pharmacy led to him brutally murdering patient Joanna Hepworth (Mollie Winnard).

Going on to discuss the character actor Amit said: ‘He’s an unlikely murdered, he’s a regular guy that would normally blend into the background. He’s not a slick drugs kingpin he doesn’t fit in’.

‘All these characters are so beautifully rounded and flawed. You think he’s done bad stuff but you have to look at why. He is in a pressure cooker situation’. 

A trailer for the final episode of Happy Valley was released this week ahead of the upcoming finale on Sunday.

The 16 second clip teases the final showdown between Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire) and Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton) after his daring escape from court before the police sergeant is shown breaking down in tears.

The trailer opens with Tommy’s son Ryan (Rhys Connah) being questioned by police about when he last had contact with his dangerous dad.

A series of scenes of the police moving in on Tommy follow as Catherine is heard saying ‘he’s still out there, he’s going to be angry and he’s going to be even more desperate and dangerous’.

The short clip ends with a bloodied Tommy appearing to hit somebody on the ground and a final shot of Catherine in tears.

Viewers tuned into the breathless penultimate episode of the BBC drama on Sunday evening as Tommy revealed his grand plans.

Tommy escaped at the end of the fourth episode of this series with fans learning in Sunday’s fifth instalment that he planned to run off to Marbella, with his son Ryan in tow.  

Viewers admitted they could barely watch the dramatic episode as everything lined up for a dramatic showdown between Tommy and Sargent Catherine, as he revealed he plans to kill her before jetting off to Spain.

Producers are said to be so desperate to keep the show’s climax a secret that they have filmed five different endings.

More than six million viewers are expected to tune in on Sunday to learn how the cat-and-mouse game will be resolved.
