Above Suspicion - 'Set 2' of Lynda La Plante's Show is on DVD Very Soon
Coming from Acorn Media in one month
Posted by David Lambert
From Lynda La Plante, the creator of Prime Suspect. "Gripping . . . crime thriller" - Daily Record (U.K.); "The best U.K. police drama in years" - The Times (U.K.); "Excellent" - The Guardian (U .K.).
Freshly promoted DI Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly, Sherlock Holmes) reunites with DCS James Langton (Ciarán Hinds, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) to investigate the murder of a former police officer. The dead man was Langton's friend, and the detectives soon learn the case is much bigger than they first believed. A drug found at the scene has the chillingly accurate street name "Drop Dead," and the notorious criminal behind the drug might be someone who no longer exists.
Based on the bestselling novels by Lynda La Plante, this hit British police drama blends taut storytelling with convincing chemistry between Travis, who "sizzles" (The Guardian, U.K.), and Langton, her hard-boiled, flawed, and charismatic boss. Set 2 includes the three-part program Deadly Intent and guest stars Julian Sands (A Room with a View).
About a year after the first set became available, Above Suspicion - Set 2 is coming to DVD on February 5th. Priced at $29.99, Acorn Media is including 3 episodes (138 minutes) plus a bonus Behind-the-Scenes Featurette, a Photo Gallery, Conversations with the Cast, Crew and Lynda Pa Plante, and more. English subtitles are included, and here is a look at the box art:
