Aidan is, of course, perhaps best known for playing Ross Poldark in Poldark, but has also starred as Kili in The Hobbit trilogy, Mitchell in Being Human, and as Leonardo da Vinci in Leonardo.

Shaun plays DI Vincent Ruiz, a police detective who has been solving murders for years and has seen his fair share of crime. So where have you seen Shaun before? The actor previously starred in The Accident as Martin Harris, Reynolds in Line of Duty, Paul Okebu in The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies and as DC Winston Nkata in The Inspector Lynley Mysteries.

Anjili plays DS Riya Devi, who is on one of her first cases on The Suspect. Intelligent, efficient and straightforward, initially she just wants to do her quota of cases, get signed off and move on to crimes which are less violent and emotionally disturbing. Anjili previously starred as Rani Chandra in The Sarah Jane Adventures, and also starred as Nadia Ali in the hit BBC series Bodyguard. Since then, the star has gone on to appear in Vigil and most recently as Archie in The Lazarus Project.

A consultant psychiatrist, Dr Fenwick practices out of the same building where Joe has his therapy room. Fenwick never wavers in her loyalty to Joe and helps him when others will not. Sian is of course Fleabag’s sister Claire in the hit BBC show Fleabag, and also recently starred in Life After Life as Sylvia Todd. Her filmography includes Vanity Fair, Inside No 9 and Liar.

Joe’s partner, Julianne compromised on her professional aspirations in order to raise their daughter, Charlie. Camilla has previously starred in Peep Show, Grantchester, Sick Note and Save Me.
