The Couple Next Door official trailer

Channel 4 fans have given their verdict on the new thriller series, The Couple Next Door, and it’s safe to say that it’s been given heaps of praise.

The six-part drama stars Sam Heughan, who shot to fame after appearing in the historical TV drama Outlander.

It also stars Poldark’s Eleanor Tomlinson, Harry Potter’s Alfred Enoch, and Arrow’s Jessica De Gouw.

The plot focuses on Evie (Eleanor) and her partner Pete (Alfred) moving into their new home and striking a close friendship with their neighbours Becka (Jessica) and Danny (Sam).

However, as the two couples grow increasingly closer, things don’t appear as they seem and a series of complicated events unfold.

One person complained: “Why could they not leave Sam Heughan’s accent alone #thecouplenextdoor.”

Another asked: “Is that his accent?”

A third commented: “Sam Heughan doing a Yorkshire accent tho.” (sic)

A fourth said: “Why on earth didn’t they keep Sam Heughan’s proper accent? The fake Yorkshire is excruciating!#TheCoupleNextDoor.”
