Suspect Plot on BritBox via Prime
Veteran detective Danny Frater is called to a hospital mortuary to identify a corpse only to find it is his estranged daughter.
Traumatized by the news she took her own life, Frater sets out to discover the truth about her death.
Suspect attempts to shake up the format we’re all so comfortable with. The story’s short (each episode clocks in at under half an hour), and intense installments primarily focus on a single pair of characters.
While a grieving father desperate for answers provides the emotional through-line that ties them all together, the segments build like puzzle pieces toward a more significant conclusion.
James Nesbitt (Bloodlands) stars as veteran detective Danny Taylor, devastated when he turns up at a hospital mortuary for a routine ID check to discover the corpse of his estranged daughter Christina.
Refusing to accept the coroner’s report that says her death was likely a suicide, he sets out on a dangerous investigation to try and uncover the events that led to her demise.
Each of the series’ eight episodes of Suspect on BritBox via Prime sees Danny conduct a separate cross-examination with a different suspect or witness, building suspense and allowing viewers to watch the investigation unfold in real time.
As he interrogates those closest to his daughter—her partner, best friend, business associate, godfather, mentor, and mother — Danny attempts to piece together the truth of Christina’s dark and complicated life.
At the same time, he’ll be forced to confront his own failings as a father and the role he himself may have played in her death.
Struggling to make sense of a mass of contradictory testimony and circumstantial evidence, Danny must decide who, if anyone, is responsible for Christina’s demise and what he’s going to do about it.
