We saw signs in last week’s wedding party from hell that Gemma might be losing the plot and episode two of Dr Foster saw Suranne Jones’s character go further off the rails.
Firstly, we saw her stalk not only her ex-husband Simon, but her teenage son Tom too.

How far apart do these people live? There's no way I could walk n stalk that far in heels! #DoctorFoster

And she also shared a bottle of wine with her son’s 13-year-old friend Max. Who she then started probing about Tom’s sex life. Obviously.
She is mad as a box of frogs. This convo with her son's best mate is so inappropriate ? #DoctorFoster

And in the same episode Foster hit the town, boozing heavily (again) in a nightclub.
I always admire how Gemma turns a stalk into a full blown sesh. #DoctorFoster

The next time a health professional asks me how many units a week the answer will be – less than Doctor Foster #DoctorFoster

Overall, viewers thought our Doc had one very crazy night…
#DoctorFoster drunken dinner with a couple of bottles,then creeping neighbours kid,then a casual stalk,then a club, does she actually fly?

#DoctorFoster I can just about get home after work. This woman has stalked 3 people. Had an inappropriate chat with a minor and gone raving.
— Olamide Alex-Dada (@O_lalaa82) September 12, 2017
And the audience was left wondering if she’d gone too far this episode.

Gemma desperately needs to get psychological help, Simon is literally making her go crazy! ? #DoctorFoster

Suranne jones is an amazing actress she's a very convincing crazy person #DoctorFoster

But however worried they were about Foster’s current state, most are still #TeamGemma.

How can I feel sorry for someone so psychotic. Gemma is stark raving mad but I so want her to win the game Simon is playing.? #DoctorFoster

But hey, however painful it is to see the doctor spiral into madness, it’s certainly an entertaining watch.

Gemma is so unhinged and I LOVE IT. #DoctorFoster
