Season 3 of Above Suspicion has just hit our shelves. Written by the multi-talented Lynda La Plante, she has a string of hits to her credit, most famously the dark, gritty and completely addictive Prime Suspect starring the completely addictive Helen Mirren. She also created the long running Trial and Retribution series.
Above Suspicion is a little lighter, but only a little. It stars the highly recognizable Ciaran Hinds from — well, everything. He was Julius Caesar in the series Rome from a few years back, he was a baddy in the second Laura Croft, he was in The Debt, Deathly Hallows part 2, Game of Thrones, In Bruges, Mayor of Casterbridge, Jane Eyre, There will be Blood, Ivanhoe and on and on. Very busy man because he is very talented. Check out everything we have in our collection on the guy. His co-star is Kelly Reilly who also has a good resume although not nearly as long. You’ll know her as Jude Law’s wife in the Sherlock Holmes theatrical movies and from Flight opposite Denzel Washington.
There are only three episodes per season, but do watch series one and two first if you can, as they build on each other. If you watch any of the seasons as a stand alone they're fine and you're likely to enjoy them, but watching all nine episodes just gives you the complete experience of the character and plot developments.
