Suspect is a fine piece of drama from yesteryear, and although some of the content will naturally be unpalatable to audiences now, it must be remembered that this was made back in 1969. A time when dramas were confined to studios, the sets shook, boom shadows, fluffed lines etc, this was very much not the case with Suspects, real quality throughout, it actually defies the time it was made. The story is simple, but clever, Phyllis Segal desperate to avoid any hint of scandal desperately tries to hide the fact that her husband has left her, lying at every turn, even unwilling to let the disappearance of a School Girl stop her facade. It's well acted, Rachel Kempson and George Sewell were each very good I thought.
It's packed with intrigue, you don't quite know who, what or why, but you're given answers at the very end. I imagine the aim was to keep you on your guard, never boring, this is a very good watch. 8/10
