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.
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

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.
The second piece we need to know is that this series is unscripted. Yes, everything that occurs is improvisation. The three main cast members, DI Martha Bellamy, played by Fay Ripley, is the boss. She decides when and where and eventually how and what. The youngest member if the team is DC Charlie Steele, played by Clare-Hope-Ashitey. She has a very intelligent mind, and she knows her business. The third member of the team is DS Jack Weston played by Damien Molony. He is an impetuous man, prone to anger. He likes to lord it over DC Steele, that he has seniority over her.
The show is very well done. The crimes seem real, the actors playing the victims and murderers are superb, and the fact they can do this series without a script, they all deserve kudos. The series takes place in East London, a place rife with crime, drugs and alcohol. The police building is very old, small rooms with ancient Windows. However, this contributes to the total look and feel of a real police department. The show is an hour long with realistic story lines, and this gives us the real stuff. There are five episodes to the first year, and I understand there is a second season.
