Carol receives a series of e-mails from "The Truth-Teller", claiming that Mark, her husband, is having an affair with his secretary. Mark is then implicated in the murder of the secretary, and the plot twists and turns from this point onwards. Written by
When affluent, happily married Carol Finnegan receives an email from 'The Truth-teller' doubt, murder and infidelity are all on the cards. She begins to doubt her husband, Adrian Dunbar, and things escalate up to a point where she thinks she's losing her mind.
'Suspicion' could of been a kick ass TV thriller/drama but it fails on many points-it's over long, the computer always seems to be on (which is very handy for the story) and when an email is received a loud flashing email icon takes up the whole screen, unlike one I have ever seen. Carol never seems to doubt 'Truth-teller' and always follows 'Truth-teller's' advice. It ties up far too easily with the unlikeable characters disposed of. And the only reason why it might take you a time to figure out whodunit is because of Adrian Dunbar's acting- I couldn't decide if he's character, Mark Finnegan, was really pretending to be cold and deadly dull. Or was it simply Adrian's wooden acting? It was the acting. At times it delivers with the suspense, but mostly it fails. Amanda Redman makes her character come to life in an otherwise dull drama.
