Who would have imagined that the Brits would produce a show that changed the entire format of a police procedural? One thinks of British TV as a continuous source of Masterpiece Theater’s handsome literary adaptations. Tasteful, might even be a better word for it. Of course, as an American my perception is more than likely warped given that much of British TV wasn’t shown over here, or it was ... read more

Helen Mirren introduces the character of Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison in the first of the series PRIME SUSPECT, which aired on PBS in January 1992. When a young woman is found brutally murdered and the DCI in charge is unable to take up the case, it is passed to Jane Tennison, the first female DCI to handle such responsibility. Between a slippery suspect and resistance from her team of detectives, Tennison has her hands full. But she's got the strength to take them all on.

“Who would have imagined that the Brits would produce a show that changed the entire format of a police procedural? One thinks of British TV as a continuous source of Masterpiece Theater’s handsome literary adaptations. Tasteful, might even be a better word for it. Of course, as an American my perception is more than likely warped given that much of British TV wasn’t shown over here, or it was hard to find, buried away in some distant cable channel.

But I’m digressing away from the main point. Prime Suspect is a hell of a show. Police dramas like Homicide: Life on the Street, NYPD Blue, and the various outsets of Law & Order owe a tremendous debt to this series. These prodigal children wouldn’t have a roadmap to follow if it wasn’t for this first entry in the six volume ” read more

"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."
