Too Close viewers savage ITV for the number of ad breaks during episode one

"More ads than drama" they said

Too Close viewers savaged ITV for the number of adverts during the intense psychological drama.

The brilliant three-part series had viewers hooked right from the get-go.

However, within an unusually short amount of time, there was an advert and viewers did not like it.

What is Too Close on ITV all about?

The drama stars Emily Watson as forensic psychologist Dr Emma Robertson and Denise Gough as her patient, Connie Mortenson.

Connie was arrested after driving her car off a bridge with two young children in the back.

Now Dr Robertson has to try and tease the information from that fateful night out of Connie, because she can’t remember what happened.

And, as viewers began to become enthralled by the psychological cat-and-mouse game between the two women, they were stunned by the frequency of ad breaks.

A third commented: “#tooclose 10 minutes in and then nearly 5 minutes of adverts?

“@ITV now the slaves of the advertising agencies. Poor show ITV, you can do better than this.”

Finally, one viewer joked: “The first ad break was definitely #TooClose to the start of the show.”
