A third person commented: "Such a treat this evening, after recently discussing the forthcoming @GwylCrimeFest, to sit down and get lost in some fab #Welshcrimedrama."

One fan couldn't help but binge-watch the entire series, writing: "I completely binge-watched #TheLightInTheHall tonight; I'm onto the last episode now. What an excellent story, even if I think I may have worked out the 'truth' earlier I won't be surprised if there are more twists and turns! Great to see more Welsh bilingualism."
