Prime Suspect (1991)
DCI Tennison has to fight her superiors' sexist attitudes to get the right to lead her first major murder investigation. She overcomes their prejudices (to a point) and solves the case through old fashioned detective work.

The first series establishes the gritty realism and outstanding acting that is a hallmark of this series.

This series takes the quality of the story telling up a notch from the previous two. DCI Tennison is working with the vice squad this time around. She investigates the death of a male prostitute that leads her into the affairs of a child prostitution and pornography ring.

This first episode of Series 4 kicks off another high quality series. This is the only series with multiple storylines.

Superintendent Tennison investigates the death of a child where the prime suspect is a child molester who is now living with his new family, having finished his prison sentence. While his community seems intent on blaming him for the new incident, doubts remain about his guilt.

What starts off as a routine murder investigation leads Superintendent Tennison into the dirty goings on in the local government. This is possibly the best storyline in the series (so far anyway).

A series of murders takes place with the methods being very similar to those employed by the killer in the original Prime Suspect. This puts Superintendent Tennison at odds with the member of the police force who believe that she got the original case wrong, and the real killer is still out there.

The murder of a Bosnian refugee living in London opens up a can of worms related to the Bosnian war and the brutal atrocities conducted during it. Not for the first time, Tennison is put into conflict with her superiors about the conduct of an investigation, but she still doggedly pursues her instincts.

Prime Suspect was a great show. Very disturbing, very memorable with great performances by Helen Mirren and the cast from each series.
