In the series, we follow Joseph O’Loughlin, a clinical psychologist played by Aidan Turner, who becomes involved in a case concerning the death of a young woman named Catherine. O’Loughlin investigates the case.
The primary actor in the new drama is Aidan Turner, best known for his role as Ross Poldark in the television series Poldark. He said he is “thrilled to be taking on the complex and demanding role of Joseph O’Loughlin, a man with so much to give but so much to lose and a hidden darker side.”
Peter Berry, who was responsible for writing Gangs of London, is the author of The Suspect. He stated, “Bringing The Suspect to the screen has been a fantastic and fascinating journey.” I have high hopes that viewers will find it just as captivating as they dive into the intricacies of a genuinely legendary figure embroiled in a plot that will put his faith to the test about his family, work, and himself.

The show is based on the debut novel of the same name written by New York Times bestselling novelist Michael Robotham. In a statement to ITV, Berry claimed to have finished the 400-page book in one sitting despite its length. “Bringing The Suspect to the screen has been a fantastic and fascinating journey,” he observed. “It’s been an incredible experience.” “I hope that the audience will find it equally enthralling as they delve into the depths of a truly iconic character caught up in a story that will test his faith in his profession, family, and himself.”
According to a plot summary for the series, Joe O’Loughlin “appears to have a perfect life” on the surface. He has a loyal wife, a loving daughter, a lucrative practice as a clinical psychologist, a media profile, and a book deal. After saving a teenage kid about to jump from the tenth story of the hospital where Joe works, he has even gained the reputation of a hero online.
When Dr. O’Loughlin is first introduced in The Suspect, a seasoned police officer named DI Vincent Ruiz and his partner, DS Riya Devi, are asking for Dr. O’Loughlin’s assistance in an inquiry concerning a young woman who was discovered in a shallow grave in a cemetery in West London. However, it only takes a little while before it’s clear that O’Loughlin himself could have something to cover up.
