Above Suspicion 4: Silent Scream - Preview

Above Suspicion 4

Preview by Jack Foley

ABOVE Suspicion has gripped a nation over four series, with these final episodes ranking with the best.

Lynda La Plante’s hit TV series Above Suspicion 4: Silent Scream comes to DVD on February 4, 2013, joined by the complete Above Suspicion 1-4 Boxed Set.

Lynda La Plante, queen of primetime British police drama, the acclaimed writer famous for her tough, gritty TV thrillers, brings DC Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly, Sherlock Holmes) and DCI James Langton (Ciarán Hinds, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) back to the screen in Above Suspicion 4: Silent Scream.

Silent Scream finds DCS James Langton (Hinds) enraged at having lost a bid for promotion, certain that someone has sold him out. That doesn’t make for the most supportive teamwork as DI Anna Travis (Reilly) and crew investigate the brutal murder of an acclaimed young film actress.

The victim, Amanda Delaney, had secrets, lots of them. And enemies, lots of them too. But what she also appeared to have, among the married men and their angry wives, jealous actors and hard-edged directors, was someone who wanted something more, something more than she could give.

An already tense team find themselves at the mercy of suspects many of whose very profession is one of deception. When you add envy, wild passion and desperate addiction into the mix, you find a case that is stirring up too much interest and too great a risk to all involved.

The way things stand there will be more than one victim before the final curtain falls on Silent Scream.

Lynda La Plante boasts a hugely impressive track record in British television that runs for the best part of three decades and takes in such notable programmes as Widows, Trial and Retribution and Prime Suspect. Above Suspicion continues that hugely impressive run.

Featuring behind the scenes features, an interview with Lynda La Plante and cast interviews, this gripping thriller comes to DVD courtesy of Acorn Media on February 4, 2013.
