“This show is, essentially, a two-hander between two actors who turn in quite remarkable performances,” promises Saga’s review.
And Helen Bownass, Stylist’s entertainment director, has similarly lavished praise on the production, promising that the “haunting” drama “is set to keep you gripped until the end.”
Consider us sold. Here’s what you need to know, then, about the much-anticipated psychological thriller.
What’s the plot of Too Close?
As reported on 25 March: Dr Emma Robertson is a seasoned forensic psychiatrist and, after years spent working with dangerous criminals, she believes herself to be utterly unshockable.
That is, of course, until she is assigned to work with Connie Mortensen, a woman accused of a heinous crime but who claims she can’t remember a thing.
ITV’s synopsis for the thriller continues: “When Dr Robertson is sent to assess Connie for trial, the two women become dangerously close.
“Connie has a searing insight into Emma’s deepest insecurities and starts to brutally exploit them. Their sessions become a complex psychological game with confusing undercurrents.
“Emma tries to understand Connie and her complicated relationship with her beautiful best friend, Ness Jones, which seems to have made her snap. But as Emma tries to uncover the truth and learn what triggered Connie’s despicable behaviour, it seems that her attempts to see justice done may destroy her instead.”
