Now that the clocks have gone back, winter hibernation has very much begun. With the temperatures dropping, there's nothing better than drawing the curtains after a long day at work and settling in for a TV binge.

One show that has really captured the imagination this autumn is Dublin Murders, the joint RTÉ/BBC production that has audiences glued to their screens as much as they're scratching their heads. Based on the Dublin Murder Squad novels by Tana French, the series stars Killian Scott and Sarah Greene as a pair of detectives with more skeletons in their closets than your local Halloween costume shop.

Every episode brings new twists as we learn more about the dark pasts of each character and that's not limited to the aforementioned pair. As things gradually unravel, we learn that pretty much everyone involved is hiding something and it all makes for gripping (if a bit confusing) TV.

Of course, all the mystery means that the internet is rife with theories about what the hell is going on and to increase your paranoia about the whole thing, we've gathered a few of the more interesting conclusions that people have reached. If you're lagging a bit behind you might want to be wary of spoilers but to be fair, most of these theories have been pretty much shot down already.

Here are a few offerings that are sure to get you thinking...

Mind blown. RTÉ One will be showing its third installment tonight from 9.35pm, which is basically what BBC screened on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Just to add to your confusion about the whole thing.

Dublin Murders is set to reach its gripping conclusion next week when all will be revealed. Will any of the above theories hold true? Probably not but it will be interesting to find out.
