The book was written by The Bill's Clara Salaman under the pseudonym Natalie Daniels.

Salaman also acts as the screenplay writer for the gritty crime drama.

What is Too Close about?

The series focuses on forensic psychiatrist Dr Emma Robertson and her dangerous relationship with her patient Connie Mortensen, a woman accused of a terrible crime she has no memory of ever committing. 

Connie is a wife and mother suffering from dissociative amnesia—or at least seems to be.

It is up to Emma to decide whether Connie can stand trial for her sins.

Dr Robertson is tasked with investigating the truth surrounding Connie’s relationship with her best friend, Ness - a relationship that somehow caused Connie to attempt to murder a loved one.

The twisted tale depicts Connie as a masterful manipulator, unearthing Emma's past traumas and pains.

The cast of Too Close features a number of big names, including Academy Award nominee Emily Watson as Dr Emma Robertson and two-time Olivier award-winner Denise Gough as Connie.
