RE: SUSPECTS | SERIES 6?!?
Permalink  
 

Paul Marquess, Suspects creator, has a new website. The following paragraph seems to suggest that the UK Suspects is a past project, not a future one

He also co-created and Executive Produced ‘Crime Stories’ for ITV Daytime and five seasons for improvised crime drama ‘Suspects’ for C5.  Paul has recently been supervising production of the German and Dutch versions of ‘Suspects’.

 

There has been no official confirmation either way, but the lack of any series last year, or any news at all, does seem to be pointing towards no series 6. Additionally, Kara Manley (series producer) has moved on from FremantleMedia, and I cannot imagine Suspects being made without her (no offense to the rest of the incredibly hard working team, but she was the queen of Suspects.)

This would be far less confusing if new cast and a new CID team had not been introduced in series 5, with the perfect set up for more series. And less upsetting if the final Channel 5 voice over announcement didn't tease "will Jack be back?" 

I bloody love Suspects and Jack Weston, I will miss them hugely.

On a brighter note. there are new behind the scenes photos on Paul's website, take a look here

Unfortunately, I also think that they have stopped making Suspects, which was a bit of a surprise after the "will Jack be back?" at the very end. It sounded as though there would be another series and I thought they were teasing us with the idea of no Jack. He is one of the most favourite characters in the Suspects.
However, while Perry Fitzpatrick seemed to be universally popular as TDC Roscoe, I noticed that Lenora Critchlow's character was much less liked in the forums.
I loved Suspects and retain the hope that it is revived after the other productions - with Damien still in as Jack, of course. In the meantime I will have to content myself with watching the DVDs!

I am biased of course, but agree that Jack is likely the favourite Suspects character. In that sense, no other character is as well liked, but.. not sure which forums you are referring to but I really enjoyed Lenora Crichlow as DS / DI Alisha as I think did many of us, especially the scenes with her and Jack which were kinda special, partly due to the Being Human connection!

It's such a shame that TV companies have to be driven by money. For all channel 5 talked up Suspects they didn't do it any favours by changing the scheduling of it so much. This seems to be the way TV is going these days - if it's not making enough money it just gets dropped. At least it's not as bad as the USA yet where shows get dropped part way through if they aren't getting viewers!
I thought Jack was a brilliant character for Damien and I'm sure he must have enjoyed the challenge of the improvisation. I'll definitely miss the Jacksass if there's no more Suspects.

cry That's a shame. I really enjoyed Suspects.  It took a while to grow on me but I will really miss the characters and the mysteries now. I was never sure who done it until the end.

You're right, Domino.

 

Without Jack, it would not be the same. no

I thought so I can distract myself a bit with the German remake, but that did not work, because I somehow did not like it either.

Do the characters have the same names Sana? And does 'Jack' have the same level of sass? Is he as much of a maverick? I must admit I'd e curious to watch it... but can't get over that they have the exact same storylines, using the same format but with different cases and with different actors to create a German version makes some kind of sense but to use the same ones....?

I wondered if they had made season 6, would Jack have had a promotion to DI. Don 't know how I would take Jack in total charge.
Imagine Jack in a suit (of course he would look awesome) but I love Jack in his casuals. Jack dealing with the hierarchy of the police. Police budgets. I think he'd hate it.

Jack in a suit? I'm imagining it Ann! But he would have to wear a blue shirt blueshirtalert

At the end of series 5 Alisha Brook (played by the lovely Lenora Crichlow, Damien's former Being Human co-star) had been promoted to DI, if memory serves, with Charlie up for taking her Sergeant's exam. Jack was totally skating too close to the edge to be promoted... it always feels like he's hanging on to his job by his fingernails as it is. And we wouldn't want him any other way!

I liked him in green as well.

Also if it came back there would be a two to three year jump, so anything could have happened.

The important thing is if it does come back then it's very important that jackisback

If they did bring Suspects back, there is one important thing for me. I hope they do not bring the daughter back.
I'm sorry, but I did not like her introduction, she was not needed. Jack was such a fantantic and interesting character, he didn't need this girl.
I didn't like what she did to his character. I loved how much Jack cared about the innocent people who had been hurt. That's why he go so angry when people lied to him. Then this girl comes along and he seemed to me to not care as much (poor Jimmy).
I know some will have liked seeing that side of Jack. But I didn't.

I quite liked seeing that side of Jack, but I couldn't see the daughter staying with him for any length of time. I rather 'suspect' (sorry, couldn't resist) that Jack would be a quite strict dad when it came to where she was and who she was with and Lucy seemed used to doing her own thing. Don't think Jack would be happy with her coming and going as she pleased. But, as Ann said, any new series would be a few years later and she would be away at uni most of the time. We don't usually see any of our favourite crime fighters at home, anyway.
I wasn't keen on Alisha, to be honest, couldn't really see Jack working with her - her comment on Jack being allowed to keep his job was quite telling. The only one of the newbies I liked was Gary, I thought he fitted in really well with both Charlie and Jack.

Le Sigh.

Let's face it Molonians, our world would be a far better place with Jack Weston

- and his 'easy charm', 'killer instinct', 'acute emotional intelligence', JackSass and unrivalled hair -

in it!

#BringJackBack

Happy Weston Wednesday!

I was okay with Alisha. She was a total different type of cop to Jack, probably always kept to the rules, never going off piste. where as Jack, well lets be honest, we liked it better when he skated on thin ice. And she must have been a pretty decent cop if she managed to hide the fact she was investigating Drummond for years. And once Jack realised she was on his size, he was perfectly fine with her.

I loved Gary too.

As for the daughter, yes she might be at University (hopefully Australia)

I loved seeing Lenora and Damien on screen together again, and like Alisha, she was a necessary force to stabilize the increasing chaos in Jack's life. The contrast between their characters and working styles, as well as the circumstances with Jack and team Losing Martha, made for some pretty tense and compelling dynamics. Such intense and addictive drama. The case being as it was meant they worked through their volatile dynamics pretty quickly and were more unified towards the end. I looked forward to seeing them going forward as a team!

Jack's daughter Lucy was a victim of some pretty horrible circumstances, who just met her Dad. And Jack, had just met his daughter. I felt for her and for Jack and only hope for them.
