Too Close

Series 1 - Episode 2

Mon 17 May 9pm - 10pm Virgin Media One


The relationship between damaged Connie (Denise Gough) and her psychiatrist Emma (Emily Watson) becomes deeper and more disturbing in the second part of this intriguing thriller.

Both women are suffering, each in a very particular way. Emma is haunted by a dreadful tragedy in her recent past and takes refuge in drinking too much. Her habit is now becoming increasingly noticeable and her husband Si is worried.

Connie remains closed down and intractable, but she’s devious too, and takes advantage of Emma’s inability to keep a close eye on her belongings. But in a strange way the women start to bond over their mutual unhappiness.


Unearthing some surprising revelations, Emma becomes increasingly sympathetic to Connie's plight, but is she being manipulated into giving too much away about her own dark past? Drama, starring Emily Watson and Denise Gough.
