Suspects on Channel 5

Fay Ripley, Damien Molony and Clare-Hope Ashitey star in our brand new crime drama, Suspects.

Suspects, a brand new British crime drama starring Fay Ripley, Damien Molony and Clare-Hope Ashitey, is coming soon to Channel 5.

With dialogue improvised by the actors – and the use of filming techniques and a directorial approach usually associated with factual programming and fly-on-the-wall documentaries – Suspects takes a different approach to how crime drama is created and executed.

Suspect will start on Wednesday 12 February at 10pm

    My wife and I love this programme. It seems so real and hard to believe that it is unscripted. Can't wait for the next episode.

    Was dissapointed,sorry.all of the cast are good actors but the improv dialogue just didn't work for me.faye Ripley just seemed inhibited ,but I,d say overall that Damien did the best job.

    Do we know the air date for the good looking new crime drama, does anyone know if it is filmed at the old The Bill sets and does anyone know if the music in the advert is Suspects theme tune

    Thank you Channel 5 for finally moving back into UK Drama. And for your next trick, will you be bringing back Suburban Shootout?
