Product Description

As seen on Channel 5.

Suspects is a procedural crime drama, starring Fay Ripley, Damien Molony and Clare-Hope Ashitey. It uses filming techniques and a directorial approach usually associated with factual programming, giving this series the unique insider feel of a documentary.

Set in London, Suspects focuses on a team of three detectives and their distinctive approaches to the job of policing. Each episode tells a self-contained crime story starting with a news report about the crime. We then follow the team of detectives as they investigate the circumstances of the crime, forensicate the crime scene, collate and analyse the evidence, and interview their suspects until they finally identify and charge the perpetrator.

Review

a high tension police show (that)makes such powerful, original viewing

--Christoper Stevens, Daily Mail

Honest, understated, clever without showing off in the slightest, it's got me bang to rights

--Matt Baylis, Daily Express

Tightly knitted, psychological story ... combines the spontaneous feel of a fly-on-the-waller with the dramatic momentum of a bona fide thriller

--Keith Watson, Metro

This series of television programmes are superb. The subject matter can be a bit harrowing but no worse than we hear on the news every day. The acting from the three main characters is outstanding, particularly from Damien Molony as DS Jack Weston, and Clare-Hope Ashitey as DC Charlie Steele.

It is even more outstanding in that all the dialogue is entirely improvised to a very tight storyline. This makes the programme fresh and really like proper conversation, not stilted in the way some dramas portray real life.

Well done all concerned.

I missed this series on tv but have since watched all episodes vitrually back to back. As the storyline focusses on the suspects, any boring interaction between the detectives and their families is avoided and the action is solely on solving the case. It is very fast paced, often doubling back to previous suspects when new evidence arises and leading us on a tangent with suspects who look the part, but are innocent. My understanding is that the dialog is improvised and this explains why it is so realistic and well acted. I look forward to the next series!

Disappointed - this is more like a series of documentaries than gripping police drama.

Making this series like a documentary might have seemed a good idea to the producers but fails miserably as far as I'm concerned. The narration is disjointed and difficult to hear at times and the acting leaves a lot to be desired.

Suspects confirms what many of us have known all along - you can make a highly entertaining police drama without reverting to the tired formula of making the lead character a one-man-army with drink problems and a messy personal life. In fact, we know exceedingly little about the character's personal lives here - it's all about the work and it's enjoyable stuff. Often, the dialogue has an almost 'improvised' feel, but that only adds to it for me. Looking forward to Series 2.

A documentary pure and simple based on Motorway Cops. Poor camera work, even worse sound and a predictable ending with every episode.
