Tomorrow, AMC+ and Sundance Now premiere the new thrilling UK series The Suspect
, based on the bestselling novel by crime writer Michael Robotham. The series follows Doctor Joe O’Loughlin, played by Aidan Turner, a clinical psychologist who seems to have the perfect career and perfect life. He’s even a hero after saving a would-be jumper from the hospital where he works. However, his life is suddenly turned upside down when he’s diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s Disease.
When a woman’s body is found in a shallow grave in the cemetery that could be a murder or suicide, DI Vincent Ruiz (Shaun Parkes) and DS Rita Devi (Anjli Mohindra) come to O’Loughlin for his expertise, and he’s happy to help. But as they dig deeper into the investigation, unsettling questions arise about O’Loughlin. Is he hiding something? Does his recent diagnosis explain his behavior, or could he be involved?
To promote the series, star Turner spoke with SciFi Vision recently about working on The Suspect
, including filming the opening scene on the ledge of a building, research and preparation into the role, and more.
