Suspect has an unusual format with 30m episodes that are essentially two handers between detective Danny, (James Nesbitt) and a different character each week that he believes will bring him closer to the murderer.

Its a straight remake of a 2019 Danish Noir,' Forhoret' which had two seasons and it keeps the dark tone of the original.

On the positive side production values were good and a lovely score by Stefano Cabrera helped a lot. The major draw was the cast and the format allowed the big names the chance to show off their acting chops.

Unfortunately it was let down by the uninspired script, there were a lot of improbabilities in the story, (detective investigates his own daughter's murder?) some of the dialogue was downright odd and the two handers made it one-paced. Nor did we get to know the daughter except for brief and often inaudible flashbacks. I watched four and gave up.

I've watched 4 episodes so far but I am struggling with it as I am feeling quite bored. I want to continue as I like James Nesbitt in most things, but there is something about this that stops it from holding my attention and I've probably missed some key dialogue in the fourth one by only half concentrating on it.

I am sticking with it because I want to see Sam Heughan, who I love in Outlander, but that is really now the only reason I'm not giving up on it.

But I am mesmerised by JN incredibly dark eyebrows, they give him the look of Ming the merciless and Griff Rhys Jones!

I am enjoying his portrayal of burnt out policeman grieving the death of his daughter and the mystery of her life!

suepalmer1957 19 June 2022

This is a really confident production with some great names - but it is dubious how easily the characters spill the information to the grieving father... also some unfortunate stereotypes which lacks a little bit of imagination. Still I enjoyed it whilst doing the ironing.

HampshireBlue 23 June 2022

One reviewer completely misses the point when criticising there generally only being 2 people in each episode. That's the premise of the show! It's a decent concept which clearly worked in covid times of filming. Give it a chance and ignore the low scores.

jefferons 19 June 2022

I've only watched two episodes, but that's enough, i wont be watching any more. Its all shouting, overacting, and ludicrous.

Nesbit is a good actor, but he looks strained in this, with huge dyed black eye brows, his heart doesn't seem to be in it.

It reminds me of 70's kitchen sink afternoon plays.

Not for me.

billyinlilla 22 June 2022

This show is terrible. Every episode is the same Meets up with a suspect, beats them up, gets info out of them then moves on too the next episode and does the same thing. Meet, beat, repeat.

lizs1289 26 June 2022

A little slow at the start but I stuck with it and by episode 4, I was invested. I don't ever remember seeing a format like this but I think it worked and I didn't see the ending coming.

bazcaz 22 June 2022

Don't bother with this, slow, boring over acted.,James Nesbit what have you done here? Watch the Danish version and see how it should have been done!

Give it a big miss!

beachfl2001 21 June 2022

An almost exact translation of the Danish "Forhøret" (Face to Face), with the few changes not helping. Even Christina and Nikki/Nicola look alike in the versions. An amazing cast doesn't save this one, though, so watch the original. Ulrich Thomsen's Bjørn is so much more engaging that James Nesbitt's Danny. Bjørn is more aggressive, more obviously jaded, meaner... you can see why his daughter doesn't talk to him.

jolibosworth 20 June 2022

Good storyline but there is a maximum of 2 characters in every scene, even in busy bars 🍸 🤔 Was bored after 2nd episode James nesbitt must be desperate for a role to do this. Its lower than budget.
