Editorial Reviews

From Lynda La Plante
the creator of
PRIME SUSPECT

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

When the brutal murder of a famous young actress brings DI Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly, Flight, Sherlock Holmes) face-to-face with her old boss, DCS James Langton (Ciarán Hinds, Game of Thrones, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), the two must find a killer and deal with their own relationship. She’s determined to get ahead; he’s angry about being passed over for promotion. Meanwhile, there are too many suspects for the murder, and Langton becomes obsessed with finding the person on his team who betrayed him.

Based on the bestselling novel Silent Scream by Lynda La Plante, this three-part drama delves into the shallow world of stardom and the harsh realities of deception. With the smoldering chemistry between Travis and Langton, the conclusion to this hit British series is “easily one of the best detective shows on the box” (Wales on Sunday, U.K.).

Contains violence and coarse language

5.0 out of 5 stars Causes viewers twists, gasps, and jumps in their chair. January 25, 2014
Writer Lynda La Plante thrillers again. Above Suspicion 3 is fast action suspense, violent crime, a again investigated by a sexy cop. coarse realism of London crime fighting includes blood and f-language; suitable only for adults. 3 episodes are parts of the same 2.3 hour multilayer investigation, "Silent Scream." And scream you may.

The ongoing series is lead by Kelly Reilly ( twice in `Sherlock Holmes', `Poldark'), DI Travis, red hair over a pixie face, tight togs, and ambition fire. DCS Langton (Ciaran Hinds- `Road to Perdition') case head but working toward vengeance. Continuing from past Above Suspicion series are: DCI Lewis (Shaun Dingwall); DC Maddox (Michelle Holmes); DS Barolli (Celyn Jones); DC Faulkland (Amanda Lawrence).
Many young stars are guests on "A.S.: Silent Scream." The murdered film star Delany by Joanna Vanderham (`The Paradise'--strongly recommended DVD). Her druggie flatmates include Felicity (Bryony Hannah -`Call the Midwife' a must own) and Jeannie (Kate O'Flynn). Saraa Stewart (`Philomena') is the murdered actress's agent, while Geoff Bell (`War Horse') is her driver. There is Danny Webb (`Land Girls'), Ray Fearon. . . well . . . the list goes on.

SDH SUBTITLES for the entire 2 1/3 hr feature as well as 37 min of video bonus.
Episode 1 -A murder of film star Amanda Delany just as DCS Langton is bypassed for promotion. (Fallout from Above Suspicion's last great thriller.) Langton leads the murder team which includes DI Anna Travis, already pushing for her own fast-track promotion. Langton uses this case to spend time finding which old team member grassed and cost him his advancement.
Episode 2 -Travis deduces the murder victim may have planned a revealing autobiography.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still good. April 14, 2014
ABOVE SUSPICION is another excellent police series by the always wonderful Lynda La Plante. For some reason, however, the program was discontinued before it really hit its stride.

Set 3 of this show, as released in North America by Acorn Media, is actually series 4 if one is to go by the U.K. release. Either way, it is truly a shame that it ends here. Especially when two further books have been written in the series without having been adapted for television. There is simply no way to understand the powers that be who decide what program continues and which is cancelled.

Comparing the three part Silent Scream episodes of ABOVE SUSPICION to the previous episodes one may detect a slightly less intensity than the earlier programs. Nonetheless, the chemistry between the cast is there, particularly with Kelly Reilly and Ciaran Hinds. Apparently in the books they get together, while in the TV adaptation they don’t quite make it, though perhaps if the show hadn’t been cancelled there would have been greater viewer satisfaction in this regard. We’ll never know.

Despite the frustration of this lost opportunity, set 3 of ABOVE SUSPICION is a good, entertaining and involving 3-part yarn about the murder of a young movie star and is filled with brilliant performances, not only from the regular cast, but from some relative newcomers playing assorted druggies and suspects. It’s quite something to see the young actress Bryony Hannah playing a dope addict, when she can also be seen as a somewhat mousey nun on the excellent British program Call the Midwife, a testament to the range of British character actors that, collectively, is unequalled anywhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Gobbled Up All Three Episodes in an Evening May 16, 2014
ABOVE SUSPICION Set 3. The show is a British television series, made by ITV that is based on the work of Lynda La Plante, the creator of the PRIME SUSPECT, British TV series that was such a massive hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Set 3 is based on the bestselling novel SILENT SCREAM by La Plante, a former cop herself. The British mystery appears to be set in the current day, in London, as the cop shop on which it focuses is the Metropolitan, better known as the Met. It has been called “a younger,sassier successor to PRIME SUSPECT” by The Telegraph. All three episodes come on a single disk, in a box set, running approximately 140 minutes, plus extras consisting of a 20 minute meet the cast; interviews with Lynda La Plante and crew (17 minutes) and a photo gallery. Also, a warning, for mature audiences only, contains violence and coarse language. And, thank goodness, and let me blow a kiss to RLJ Entertainment and Acorn, who have released the set; subtitles, or else what would those of us on this side of the pond do with that quick London cross-chat?

The brutal murder of a famous troubled young actress brings Detective Inspector Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly, BLACK BOX; SHERLOCK HOLMES) back to the team of her old boss, DCS James Langton (Ciarán Hinds, GAME OF THRONES; TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY). The two must find a killer, while attempting to deal with their ragged relationship. Police work has become Anna’s life and she’s determined to get ahead. Langton’s angry about being passed over for a big promotion, and furiously wonders who, on his team, betrayed him. Meanwhile, there are too many suspects for the murder of the beautiful, promiscuous, drug-addled actress.
