anyone watching tonight? like new series though this one is weird as apparently not scripted - first episode is about a 2yr girl who gets abducted sad

tv guide says

Shot in the style of a fly on-the-wall documentary, Suspects is unscripted, with the cast devising their own dialogue based on a detailed plot description.

Set in London, each episode is a self-contained story, starting with a news report, then following the team of three detectives as they investigate the circumstances the crime. The cases themselves are hard-hitting with contemporary themes, such as the search for a soldier with PTSD, a murder that has been made to look like an assisted suicide and the gang rape of a young teenager.

Each detective has their own distinctive style of working. The team leader, DI Martha Bellamy, maintains an overview but also sits in and conducts the questioning of suspects. Her team know that she is behind the mall the way and will fiercely defend them when necessary.

DS Jack Weston is a man of action whose charm belies an unerring gut-instinct. He automatically senses if a suspect is lying or concealing their emotions and is expert at getting to the root cause.

DC Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Steele Ashitey has a keen eye for detail. She will patiently study CCTV and check the records for past offenders. Passionate yet level-headed, she believes that the police can make a real difference.

Thought it was quite interesting but missed the end - who did it? Was the little girl ok?

Just caught up, quite liked it as it felt quite realistic not being scripted, lots of erms and pauses as in real life. Sadly the girl was dead, the brother accidentally suffocated her as he was trying to keep her quiet so the dad wouldn't abuse her as he had the boy. Sad.
