Suspects Lists

Wednesdays, 5:00 PM ET on Channel 5

60 minutes

Shot in the style of a fly-on-the-wall documentary, Suspects is unscripted, with the cast devising their own dialogue based on a detailed plot description. Set in London, each episode is a self-contained story, starting with a news report, then following the team of three detectives as they investigate the circumstances the crime. The cases themselves are hard-hitting with contemporary themes, such as the search for a soldier with PTSD, a murder that has been made to look like an assisted suicide and the gang rape of a young teenager.
