In contemporary London, three detectives work together to solve a variety of brutal and chilling crimes.

Filmed with a unique fly-on-the-wall documentary style and improvised dialogue, this gritty police procedural has been hailed as a “fresh, very different, and absolutely cracking drama” (Daily Mail). From murders to drug crimes and missing person’s cases, Suspects exposes the rigors of police work and the complicated rapport among investigators.
