The latest episode of Derry Girls received mixed response from fans on social media leaving us asking - is the hit comedy show starting to flop?

Episode two of the second season, titled Ms De Brun and the Child of Prague, saw Erin, Clare, Michelle, Orla and James inspired by their new, radical English teacher, Ms De Brun, played by Judith Roddy.

The episode also featured a raid of Ma Mary's Christmas cupboard and a trip to the cinema ruined by a security alert.

Viewers took to Twitter to critique the latest episode and although it continued to enjoy acclaim from fans, some viewers felt as though the series might have jumped the shark.

Here's how Twitter reacted:

However, it seems the series is still in the good books of many, including Little Britain's Matt Lucas.

Channel 4 today announced that episode one of the new series of Derry Girls reached a consolidated 3.2m viewers, out-performing the previous series launch and making it the channel's biggest audience for a comedy series since 2007.
