My Thoughts

Suspects is an exciting crime drama set in modern day London. The series primarily centers around three detectives--Jack Weston, Martha Bellamy, and Charlie Steele. Each character has their own personality which sometimes leads to conflict, but for the most part, they are a team to be reckoned with.  There are six episodes in this  set including: 

1-  Jack gets a frantic call from Bellamy's teen daughter, Lucy. When he arrives he finds the DI dead.

2-  A dead woman is pulled from the water and Jack believes it's connected to Bellamy's death.

3- Alisha and Gary investigate the rape of a teen girl which leads to the discovery that Lucy is staying with Jack

4-  Jack is benched when Lucy is kidnapped, and a boy that claims to be her boyfriend comes forward with disturbing information.  

5 - A missing person from eight years ago is discovered buried in cement which is a case that  Bellamy was working on.

6- Alisha is attacked and the evidence on Drummond is stolen. Drummond takes desperate measures.

This was a fantastic DVD set. Each episode is packed with action, and getting all these shows in one box set makes it a great deal as well! If you'd like to grab a copy of this fantastic series for yourself, it is available now on Acorn Media and on Amazon.
