Our latest watch is another British crime drama, Above Suspicion, which we are watching on Acorn TV. Above Suspicion is based on a book series written by Lynda La Plante who also wrote the Prime Suspect series. The main character is a rookie detective constable, Anna Travis, who is played by Kelly Reilly. Her counterpoint is DCI James Langton played by Ciarán Hinds, who played Ceaser in the HBO series Rome and was also in Game of Thrones.
The show has four seasons. The first is two episodes and the following ones are three like many of the British crime series are. The main character is very different than La Plante’s Jane Tennison, played by Helen Mirren, in Prime Suspect. It is interesting how Reilly is developing the character. We just started season two and are enjoying it,
