ITV’s gripping psychological thriller, Too Close, which premieres Monday 12th April on ITV with the next two episodes airing at 9pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, already has social media abuzz.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new show….
What is Too Close about?
According to ITV, the phycological thriller stars Emily Watson as dedicated forensic psychiatrist, Emma Robertson, who is assigned to work with Connie Mortensen, a wife and mother accused of a despicable crime. Her assessment of the ‘yummy mummy monster’s’ sanity will determine whether Connie faces life in jail, life in a secure psychiatric hospital, or the chance of rehabilitation and release.
Emma hopes that the high-profile case will make her career, but her sessions with Connie quickly become a complex psychological game of cat and mouse with confusing sexual undercurrents. “Connie has a searing insight into Emma’s insecurities and brutally exploits them,” teases ITV.
“It isn’t clear whether she is hoping to manipulate Emma to gain her freedom, or simply toying with Emma for her own entertainment, as she probes into Emma’s own dark past.”
Emma gradually starts to understand what drove Connie to her crime, but it also seems that she may be getting too close to a woman who is beyond redemption – can Emma see to it that justice is done without destroying herself in the process?
“Too Close is about a powerful – but dangerous – closeness between two women,” they add. Sounds intense…
It was written by author and actress Clara Salaman and directed by Sue Tully (of Line of Duty fame) and was inspired by the novel of the same name published under Clara’s pseudonym Natalie Daniels (Clara Salaman) so you can expect some gripping stuff.
Who stars in Too Close?
Emily Watson (of Chernobyl fame) and Denis Gough are the show’s protagonists, while Thalissa Teixeira, James Sives, Risteard Cooper, Chizzy Akudolu, Eileen Davies and Nina Wadia also star.
