ITV have pulled the last episode of Viewpoint

It does seem a bit perverse to effectively judge this guy guilty at this stage.
"Innocent until proven guilty" has definitely foundered on the reef of Facetwit and 'public opinion'.

(And SWMBO is incandescent about the cancellation.)

So that means I have not wasted my time watching the previous episodes which I quite enjoyed as I am not one of those who go in for petty nit-picking about plot and procedure when watching this sort of thing.

I had recorded this but hadn’t got around to watching it. Now the last episode is “missing” I’ve hit delete.

Just hope the BBC don’t find an excuse to pull the final episode of this series of “Line of Duty”. I’ll be using a stronger expression than “mother of God” if they do.

I have tried to download episode 5 via qtube and directly using youtube-dl but get an error:
ERROR: Unable to download JSON metadata: HTTP Error 500: Internal Server Error (caused by HTTPError()
Has anyone been able to download it ? If so, would appreciate a copy.
Thanks

I think they've updated the site itv.com and it's put a spanner in all versions of YouTube-dl. Not many programmes are downloadable at the moment.
The only 2 options that I can think of is wait to see if the next YouTube-dl update will resolve the issue, or try using the alternative site https://www.stv.tv/?player (which you can use the Linux YouTube-dl on, maybe in Windows as well?).
