16 8.5 7.74. Prime Suspect: The Lost Child (1995)
This first episode of Series 4 kicks off another high quality series. This is the only series with multiple storylines.

16 8.4 7.75. Prime Suspect: Inner Circles (1995)
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).
20 7.4 7.76. Prime Suspect: Scent of Darkness (1995)
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.
15 8 7.68. Prime Suspect 6: The Last Witness (2003)
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.
