At last, the whole series has been reissued on DVD. Worth the investment...unlike most TV shows on DVD (hello, HBO and Fox?)
Beware of the old DVDs floating around from the original PBS presentations in the early 1990s. Strong language was dubbed over, rather poorly.
The rating gets only 4 stars rather than 5 for Anchor Bay's DVD treatment. Normally they have done a great job with their releases, but "Prime Suspect 2" is, unfortuantely, not among their best. I'm not sure about the source material that was available to them, but the picture doesn't appear to be as crisp as one would expect from a DVD, particularly for material that was produced in 1993. You must also flip the disk over . . . it's presented in two parts, just as it was released on PBS in America. This release also replaces some minor profanity with toned-down language. Save for 20 chapter breaks (10 on each side) and English subtitles, there are no extras on this DVD. Still, the story and characterizations merit a view.
Following on the success of the first Prime Suspect, this would be just another sequel if it weren't for the compelling story and the performance of Helen Mirren. Driven to succeed against both forces outside and inside the department, she looks for the unpleasant truth against those who would use this tragedy for their own purposes.
Another "must see" this second installment cemented the series as great viewing.
I think Dame Helen would agree that this series is some of her best work and moved her into more feature films and her Academy Award.
Just a add on comment. I agree with one reviewer that Anchor Bay is not the best when it comes to quality DVDs. The big problem I have with them is very
few have closed-caption.

What can I say? This is another excellent episode in this British Crime Drama TV series. The British obviously know a thing or two about crime dramas, and this is just one example... Read morePublished on August 27, 2013 by University Doc
Helen Mirren makes every movie worthwhile. She isn't always likeable, but she is always real. Start with the first and work your way through them.Published on January 2, 2013 by JC
The Item I ordered was the second season of the program. However, when the DVD arrived, it was the 1st season, boxed in a 2nd season package. Not a good thing to do to customers. Read morePublished on February 20, 2012 by Stanley M. Cothren
I received my two DVD's quickly. Only watched the first one, but it's in great shape. I would reorder from this vendor.Published on December 28, 2011 by Gus
