ITV Viewers Baffled By Sex Scene In Too Close

ITV Viewers Baffled By Sex Scene In Too Close

Viewers of ITV's new psychological thriller Too Close have been left confused and - in many cases - amused by a sex scene that took place.

The series, which stars Emily Watson and Denise Gough, centres around a forensic psychologist who is assessing whether a mother deliberately tried to kill off her own kids.

Either way, at one stage Watson's character - that aforementioned psychologist - was talking to her husband, played by Risteárd Cooper, about how they never do anything spontaneous anymore, which leads to them having sex on the kitchen counter top.

As an aside, is it still spontaneous if someone suggests doing something because it is spontaneous?


Well, whatever the case, during the whole steamy scene, Watson never appears to remove her trousers, meaning that either something has gone wrong during filming, or they're supposed to be performing some pretty incredible sexual gymnastics.

One person tweeted: "Wow sex without even taking their pants down!"

Another person wrote: "Remember sex works best when the woman takes her trousers off."


Well, that's the traditional way anyway, but whatever floats your boat.

A third said: "How come she still had her trousers on?!"

Too Close follows Dr Emme Robertson (Watson) as she attempted to get to the bottom of whether Connie Mortensen (Gough) really wanted to kill her kids, for which she stands accused of attempted murder.

Robertson visits Mortensen in a psychiatric hospital where she is being assessed ahead of her trial.


However, even that posed some problems for the viewers, who noticed that there would be no way in hell that someone would be able to bring her phone, her cigarettes, and a lighter into a facility like that.

One eagle-eyed observer wrote: "Sorry? Ciggies, lighter and a phone? Did she not get security training before working in a prison? #TooClose."

Another said: "Just watched #TooClose. Very intense and great acting, but seriously, who is allowed to walk into a secure hospital with a mobile phone, cigarettes and lighter?"


A third commented: "So what exactly did she leave in the locker if she was allowed to take her lighter in? #TooClose."

Despite those two conversation pieces, the general consensus appears to have been that the show was pretty good, and particular praise was reserved for Gough's performance as the so-called 'Yummy Mummy Monster' Mortensen.

Too Close was written by Clara Salaman and airs nightly on ITV at 9:00pm.
