A few viewers said they were unable to read the credits at the end of the drama as the letters were too small. One person took to Twitter, writing: "Close to the telly to read those credits," while another added: "Issues raised in #CloseToMe - you can't read the credits. If I were credited I'd be cross. Why do they do this?" A third person tweeted: "Why make a drama for TV with the credits in tiny little letters that NO ONE CAN SEE!"

In the new drama, Jo loses a year of her memory after suffering a fall

For those who have yet to watch gripping Channel 4 drama, it follows Jo Harding, played by Connie Nielsen, a woman who seems to have it all - – a beautiful house in the country, a loving family and Rob, her devoted husband (Christopher Ecclestone). But following a fall, Jo loses an entire year of her memory. As she struggles to piece together the events of the past year, she discovers her life wasn’t quite as perfect as she imagines - and suspects that someone is keeping a terrible secret from her.

The six-part series is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by author Amanda Reynolds, and continues on Sundays at 9 pm on Channel 4.
