Too Close: ITV viewers rage as they ‘miss crucial chunk’ of finale as episode crashes

The psychological thriller came to an end last night

Too Close viewers were left fuming during last night’s finale as ITV unexpectedly crashed.

The drama followed the dangerous relationship between psychiatrist Dr Emma Robertson (Emily Watson) and her high-profile patient Connie Mortensen (Denise Gough).

But as the three-part series came to a gripping end on Wednesday (April 14), fans were disappointed after the episode froze during an advertisement break.
