AIDAN TURNER TO LEAD
THE SUSPECT TV SERIES
He is returning to the telly after Poldark and Leonardo. Five episode thriller series THE SUSPECT at ITV will see Aidan Turner playing Doctor Joe O’Loughlin, who appears to have the perfect life – a devoted wife, a loving
daughter, successful practice as a clinical psychologist, media profile and a publishing deal. He’s even a hero online after rescuing a young patient who was ready to jump from the 10th floor of the hospital where Joe works.
When a young woman is found in a shallow grave in a West London cemetery, veteran police officer DI Vincent Ruiz and his young partner DS Riya Devi are assigned to the investigation. But has the young woman been murdered or is this a case of suicide?
As a successful author, Doctor Joe’s opinion is much sought after and when he meets DS Devi he’s only too willing to offer help with profiling and his expertise.
But does Joe have more to hide? His recent diagnosis with a debilitating illness could explain his behaviour. But as the investigation into Catherine’s death gathers pace, we start to ask, do we know the real Joe, or does he have a secret life? And has his work as a clinical psychologist allowed him to develop a criminal mindset? Or worse?
Shaun Parkes, Sian Clifford, Camilla Beeput, Adam James and Anjli Mohindra will also star.
