THE Inheritance viewers have ripped into the new Channel 5 drama and fumed: "who signs off on this s***e?!"

The series focuses on a family who are trying to get to the bottom of a mystery. 

Sian, Daniel and Chloe Watson's father Dennis dies and leaves all of his money to a woman called Susan who they have never heard of.

They discover that he had a 14-year affair with the woman and married her in secret.

The revelation causes the trio to become suspicious that Susan played some part in Dennis's death.

The Inheritance stars Larry Lamb, Gaynor Faye, Robert James Collier and Kevin Whately, but despite the stellar cast, some viewers have been left underwhelmed by the production.
