Suspects: Series 1 & 2
A detective drama that doesn't follow the script.
Suspects is a fresh and original British procedural crime drama, set in London, that tackles difficult subjects in a gritty and real way. Shot like a fly-on-the-wall documentary, this innovative new series is unscripted with the cast devising their own dialogue, lending Suspects a unique sense of authenticity. It's as though the crew has been granted the privilege of following a real police investigation.
Starring Fay Ripley as DI Martha Bellamy (Cold Feet), Damien Molony as DS Jack Weston (Being Human, Ripper Street) and Clare-Hope Ashitey as DC Charlie Steele (Children of Men, Top Boy) as East London CID officers, each episode follows a different case from the committing of the crime to its conclusion. In this 3-disc set containing all the 9 episodes of Series 1 & 2, Bellamy and her team investigate crimes that are hard-hitting and contemporary, ranging from the hunt for a serial rapist, a brutal hammer assault on a man in his own home to the abduction of a young boy by a paedophile ring.
With guest stars including Charlie Brooks (EastEnders), Dominic Powers (Emmerdale), Gillian Kearney (Casualty) and Larissa Wilson (Skins), Suspects is immersive and absorbing, taking the viewer into exhilarating new territory.
