The 47-year-old writer even changed his mind on the offender mid-way through the series.

He said at the time: "I wrote episode one draft one and I thought it was somebody and then I was thinking about it and I was like, "Oh, actually, that's how it should resolve." It changed slightly but then from the second draft of episode one [it was] always the same."
