Netflix fans all have the same complaint about James Nesbitt thriller Stay Close as it tops streamer's charts


NETFLIX fans are in an uproar over James Nesbitt’s new thriller Stay Close, with many turning off after a “ridiculous error”. 

The show, based on Harlan Coben's novel Stay Close, climbed to the top of the platform’s most-viewed list within hours – but viewers have highlighted a serious problem. 

The eight-part series follows mum Megan whose perfect life is built upon a dark secret that threatens to come back and haunt her.

And, while detectives are investigating a missing person, they appear to stumble upon a serial killer.

The series features a star-studded cast including Nesbitt, Jo Joyner, Richard Armitage and Eddie Izzard.

Eagle-eyed viewers will have noticed a number of locations from across the region including St Helens Dream Sculpture near Wigan, Tatton Park, Manchester’s Impossible bar, the Silver Jubilee Bridge in Halton and the former nightclub Shorrocks Hill in Formby.

However, the show is set in a fictitious part of the country where all locations are supposedly next to one another – causing a big distraction to northern viewers.

Some viewers have gone as far as saying the mixed up locations have been such a distraction from the plot that they’ve turned off altogether.

One disgruntled tweeted: "Given up with Stay Close after just two episodes.

"Completely ridiculous and unbelievable, to say nothing about the random locations around the North West all appearing to be next to each other or a short car ride away."

Someone else added: "Really like Stay Close on Netflix, but I'm struggling with the filming locations."

Echoing their comments, another person said: "There's some big plot holes in Stay Close on Netflix.

"One of the characters has just driven over the Runcorn Bridge, through Blackpool and ended up at The Dream in St Helens – not buying it."

Stay Close is available to stream on Netflix now.
