FANS of the show Malpractice took to social media to share their disbelief at the latest episode.

Viewers were left "screaming at the TV" as they watched the show unfold.

Doctor Lucinda Edwards, the protagonist, found herself entangled in a drug ring that supplies fentanyl to drug addicts – following the death of fellow GP, Rob.

Whilst at a pharmacy, Lucinda attempted to secure payment for distributing the drugs and turns on her phone, to discover missed calls from her partner Tom.

In a later scene, Lucinda's daughter Abi was seen crawling under the bed before Lucinda left.

Shortly after, Tom discovered Abi sat motionless – with a packet of pills in her hand.
