Suspects Series 5
Suspects Series 5
Damien starred as DS Jack Weston in Suspects Series 5, with a new cast line-up.
For the fifth series, the show’s format evolved, with one storyline extending across six episodes.
The series also included the detectives’ personal lives for the first time, with Jack Weston in his own storyline.
The series begins with the shocking discovery of D.I. Martha Bellamy’s body by her daughter Daisy (Alexa Davis). It appears she’s been fatally shot in her own home, and with her father missing too, Daisy immediately calls D.S Jack Weston (Damien Molony). Leading this traumatic investigation is D.C.I Drummond (James Murray) with his trusted team T.D.C Gary Roscoe (Perry Fitzpatrick) and D.S Alisha Brooks (Lenora Crichlow). Together with D.C Charlie Steele and D.S Jack Weston, they leave no stone unturned in the hunt to find the killer.
As the pressure to find the killer mounts, tensions within the new team inevitably creep in as they navigate their new working relationship. DCI Drummond is a strong alpha male whose desire to control all elements of the investigation leads to clashes with the more gung-ho approach of D.S. Weston. Weston also has private concerns about D.S. Alisha Brooks’ loyalty, believing she is just a spy for DCI Drummond, and her work in the Department of Professional Standards only adds to his suspicions. Meanwhile, T.D.C Gary Roscoe appears to be a straight-forward copper who only wants to get results.
