Editorial Reviews

From Lynda La Plante
the creator of

“Gripping . . . crime thriller” —Daily Record (U.K.)
“The best U.K. police drama in years” —The Times (U.K.)

“Excellent” —The Guardian (U .K.)

Freshly promoted DI Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly, Sherlock Holmes) reunites with DCS James Langton (Ciarán Hinds, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) to investigate the murder of a former police officer. The dead man was Langton’s friend, and the detectives soon learn the case is much bigger than they first believed. A drug found at the scene has the chillingly accurate street name "Drop Dead," and the notorious criminal behind the drug might be someone who no longer exists.

Based on the bestselling novels by Lynda La Plante, this hit British police drama blends taut storytelling with convincing chemistry between Travis, who "sizzles" (The Guardian, U.K.), and Langton, her hard-boiled, flawed, and charismatic boss. Set 2 includes the three-part program Deadly Intent and guest stars Julian Sands (A Room with a View).

If you are an avid fan of Hollywood, perhaps, you should move on. This film is from Acorn Media. Therefore, it is a classic British TV detective series, which means there's lots of blood and gore and twisting plots. Also, being British, these features are as much about the crime as they are about the detectives themselves. This means that there's lots of drinking, politically-incorrect sexual relations, and questionable police tactics. These typically British coppers are very human -- and very flawed characters. I love it, but it may not be for you!

Format: DVD
`Deadly Intent,' Bestselling thriller of Lynda La Plante, is gritty, fast action, violent crime, and edgy. La Plante (Crime Thriller Writer's Hall of Fame) again lets a sexy female scrap her way into the man's world of murder crime fighting. She's raised the TV acceptance bar for coarse realism of London crime fighting. The ongoing series is lead by Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes x2, Poldark: The Complete Collection), now DI Travis, with her pixie face and tight clothes. She has more confidence, and more suitors. DCS Langton (Ciaran Hinds- `Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy') is the tough, tetchy boss overstepping and infiltrating on the territory of case head, DCI Lewis (Shaun Dingwall).

SUBTITLES for all 3 parts (and bonus footage).
It opens with a Mexican doctor doing a realistic facelift. Ugh! [The filmed doctor was a real plastic surgeon doing the role. That's realism.]
One year later . . .
London ex-cop Brandon is killed in a crack house. His wife, Julia (Stine Stengade), is unfazed. DI Travis wants to know why. The murder scene includes, besides blood, body and bullets, Fentanyl, drug known on the street as "Drop Dead."
Conflict abounds in the situation room as Travis pursues her own clues, Lewis has a family distraction, and Langston was a past friend/colleague with the victim. DCI Power (Ray Fearon), drug squad, adds inter-circle anxiety.
Julia's sister (Benedikte Hansen) and brother-in-law (Julian Sands- Room with a View), an Oxford bio-chem professor, provide answers.
But related deaths rise and a confession doesn't end this case. A new threat is massively deadly. Travis makes a connection.

Any series/movie with Ciaran Hinds is great! I have watched many of his movies/series and it is amazing the versatility he has an actor; no matter the type of character he plays, he turns into that person so much that you forget he is an actor!!! I will buy anything he has a part in! I'm waiting for the DVD release of the series "Political Animals" in which he plays a southern politician notorious for his woman chasing. His southern drawl is so believable and his portrayal is such that he is obnoxious, but at the same time you can't help but like him. Amazing actor!

My only criticism of Above Suspicion is that a series is so short and there is such a wait for the next one!

As a longtime Ciaran Hinds fan, as well as one who relishes crime dramas that shed light on the workings of tortured minds (e.g., Law & Order Criminal Intent), I could overlook the shortcomings of the first two-part episode (Anna's wobbly spike heels, the short skirt, the misty eyed but knowing looks, her thoroughly unprofessional demeanor, etc.), and gave it a rave review based on the strength of the final interrogation scene, dynamite, she showed what she's made of, mettle-wise, matching the perp in intensity. His crimes made sense, though there were gruesome details galore, they struck me as realistic, not gratuitous or designed merely to shock. I also liked the promise of the attraction between the two leads, where would it lead? Then I watched "seasons" 2 and 3.

Gratuitous, preposterous. So many gaffes, overlooked leads and details, FOR EXAMPLE, ***SPOILER ALERT*** in Season 3, they did NO background check on the perp's brother (!), and they only thought to check on the whereabouts of the perp's son at the last minute- gosh, he might have gone there! And no reporting of the knowledge of the plane, no typing in of the plane's serial number to see what/where it might be, absurd. The final scene wherein Ciaran and Kelly abandon the car and RUN down the runway after the plane was one of the stupidest scenes EVER. MANY plot points are left totally unexplained. It's as though through some printing mishap every other page of the script failed to print and nobody noticed.

Just a little too predictable in places. I only watched the first two seasons (didn't want to pay to watch more because I didn't get that invested in the characters.
