'Suspects Series 5' DVD Review

'Suspects' is not your everyday crime drama. The stories takes place in London and deal with murder, attempted murder, missing people, drug overdoses, sex crimes, and child abuse. The main difference is that the shows dialogue is improvised. It really does bring a realistic tone to the quality of the show.
DS Jack Weston (Damien Molony) and DC Charlie Steele (Clare-Hope Ashitey) are the heart and soul of their small team. Along with their boss DI Martha Bellamy the team does a great job in protecting the citizens of London.

Series 5 begins with the murder of Bellamy and her husband Adrian. This takes Weston and Steele for a complete shock. The team will take on three more people for this case. DCI Daniel Drummond (James Murray) along with Detectives Gary Roscoe (Perry Fitzpatrick) and Alisha Brooks (Lenora Crichlow) will round out the new team. Right off the bat the new team begins to realize that Bellamy's murder could be connected to a cold case that Bellamy was investigating. Soon the squad learns that Drummond may have ties to one of the prime suspects of the cold case. Another turn to the plot would be that Bellamy's husband Adrian was probably being blackmailed by a young lady in a video. Unfortunately, the young lady's body washes up on shore and thus opening up another twist to our story.
Acorn brings 'Suspects Series 5' to DVD on March 7th, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. This will add to that personal library of yours and you can pick up series 1-4 to round it out. This expertly done crime drama is really so much more with its approach. This improvised dialogue adds so much more to the show its unbelievable. This is definitely one of the best shows on TV and makes for excellent viewing. Enjoy.
