Suspect is a 2008 British whodunit crime mystery programme that aired the children's television channel CBBC and BBC.


Children attempt to solve crimes committed at the fictional Kilcrammond House Hotel to gain admittance to the Academy of Criminal Investigation (an anagrammatic acronym of the CIA). The show is presented by Simon Grant who plays the part of the hotel manager.

The show uses a fictitious crime, which the children must solve. Most crimes have managed to relate to children in some way. There have been various crimes, from theft to sabotage, forgery to food poisoning. The children then attempt to solve the case. They however, know that the offender is one of four presented to them at the start. The children get the chance to use forensics equipment, to check fingerprints, and soil samples. They have the chance to talk to three of the four suspects, before making their final decision. If the children are correct, they receive entry in to the ACI (Academy of Criminal Investigation).
