Emmett Scanlan | New preview clip from Suspects
(unfortunately not airing until 2015)
If you’ve seen TV listings then you’ll have noticed it looks as if tonight’s Suspects episode (the second half of a two-parter [no Emmett]) is the last for a while. This means that we might not see Emmett’s episode for a bit…(I’m hoping we don’t have to wait until 2015 but we might have to!).
The original press release said:
The five remaining instalments, plus some new episodes, will now form series two in the autumn, with an all-new third series also confirmed for 2015.
With any luck Channel 5 might announce when the new episodes will be airing after tonight’s episode or on Twitter.
I’ll keep you posted.

Suspects Series 2 Air Date Confirmed
Suspects Series 2 will premiere with a 2 part special 10pm Wed 20 August - Thurs 21 August on Channel 5.
DI Martha Bellamy (Fay Ripley), DS Jack Weston (Damien Molony) and DC Charlie Steele (Clare-Hope Ashitey) return with another gripping, hard-hitting case. Charlie Brookes, Dominic Power, Luke Newberry and Claire Cooper also star.
Unsure which episode Emmett Scanlan appears in but I’ll update as and when I find out. It means we’re probably looking at September.

From the Channel 5 Suspects website…
Shot in the style of a fly on-the-wall documentary, Suspects is unscripted, with the cast devising their own dialogue based on a detailed plot description.
Set in London, each episode is a self-contained story, starting with a news report, then following the team of three detectives as they investigate the circumstances the crime. The cases themselves are hard-hitting with contemporary themes.
The first series aired with very positive reviews in the press (like this one) and the cast is headed by Fay Ripley, Damien Molony and Clare-Hope Ashitey.
Judging by filming photos it looks like Emmett is playing a solicitor. The improvised dialogue will have made for a new acting experience for him so I’m excited to see it when it airs.

I haven’t, sorry. I can guarantee as soon as I know anything I’ll post about it! (I’m eager to see it again myself). At the premiere Toby Everett said the difficulty in releasing the DVD/downloads was that if it leaked online then it would be ineligible to enter any film festivals - so I think they were holding out for a while. In the meantime I’m sure if you tweet Toby he might be able to let you know.
