Above Suspicion - Series 1-2

Large Programme Image


From award-winning writer Lynda La Plante, Above Suspicion follows the detective careers of DC Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly) and her police partner DCI James Langton (Ciaran Hinds) as they investigate shocking crimes and seek to bring sadistic and merciless killers to justice.

Under the unorthodox guidance of Langton, rookie Travis must negotiate a series of killings shocking even to the most hardened detective and defy the challenges of these brutal crimes to rise up the ranks of the police force.

While investigating the mutilated body of a young woman whose death seems to echo that of a notorious unsolved murder from the 1940s, Travis and Langton will have their detective skills pushed to the limits as they seek to bring those above suspicion to justice.
