Editorial Reviews

The Emmy®-winning crime series seen on PBS

"A perfect marriage of astoundingly talented actress and brilliantly conceived character" --USA Today

"Riveting" --The Boston Globe

Oscar® winner Helen Mirren is Detective Jane Tennison, "one of the great character creations of our time" (The Washington Post), in a series that won more than 20 major international awards and raised the bar for police dramas.

Tenacious, driven, and deeply flawed, Tennison rises through the ranks of Britain’s Metropolitan Police, solving horrific crimes while battling office sexism and her own demons. “Rare is the drama that works so well on two levels: as a crackling whodunit and as a finely tuned character study of a strong but insecure woman trying to prove herself in a man’s world” (Time).

Seen on Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! and created by crime writer Lynda La Plante, Prime Suspect features some of Britain’s biggest stars, including Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient), Tom Wilkinson (Michael Clayton), Zoë Wanamaker (Poirot), David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes), Ciarán Hinds (Jane Eyre), Tom Bell (Reilly: Ace of Spies), and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting).

Contains coarse language and graphic content

Customer Reviews

Excellent acting , great stories, great suspense, very realistic senarios- no Hollywood!
Tina L Phillips
She solves murder cases, often very similar to the ones that her male counterparts solve in the British mysteries.
carol irvin
Be aware, the cases may not always end to your satisfaction--just like real life crimes and punishment.

Format: DVD
UPDATE: This set is rumored to be released on Blu-ray in fall (Aug or Sep) of 2013.

Now, "PRIME SUSPECT" is available, boxed as "The COMPLETE COLLECTION". A bargain compared to individual segments. If you are just finding Prime Suspect, you WILL want all 7 years. 9 stories. Not just tales of cops and murder, but in-your-fact realistic cop activity, which was done with so much realistic detail, it was the show to change British (and world) crime shows forever. It is the gritty type of show that all mystery film and TV now try to duplicate. Police drama was changed forever by Helen Mirren and her role as Jane Tennison.

Be aware, the cases may not always end to your satisfaction--just like real life crimes and punishment. But you will be on the edge of your seat while you watch. 6 stories last over 3 hours each. The other 3 are about 1 1/2 hours long. Each is compelling viewing, ruthless in the detail, definitely not for children and the squeamish, blatantly course visually and in dialogue, but oh, so realistic.

Helen Mirren makes the show as Tennison. Obsessed, work-driven, feminist attitude, course, in-your-face drive, compellingly believable, more man-like rather than the occasional romantic which does exist, she's a drinker, and she almost never smiles.

Subtitles for series 1-6. CC for 7. Even subtitles on the bonus features. Stars in every segment, and plenty of them. A list too long to post.

1-Brutal murders, & DCI Tennison gets promoted to head of the murder investigation team after the present leader dies. She takes on a botched investigation, a slippery suspect, a home-front relationship, and proves to have more than what it takes, even being a woman, to male surprise.

If you're looking for something different in the police drama category... this is it. Completely unlike anything in the American cop show format, the first thing you'll notice is that these are all 1-hour-40-minute movie length features as opposed to the American format of 42-44 minutes. With only two of these features in each series broadcast a week apart as a part 1 / part 2, this must have been more like an annual event on British televison as opposed to a "season" on American TV. And what an event it must have been... wonderful story development with some really gritty subject matters, and Helen is marvelously brilliant in what could have been a very stereo-typed role. She plays it with a flawed humanity that is totally engrossing and even a little uncomfortable at times. There are also some fine performances by her fellow actors, particularly a couple of the "suspects". Very emotional and gripping. One other big difference from American cop shows... for the most part the officers are not armed and there was very little gunplay. This was at times a refreshing change and other times it was like "are you crazy going into that situatuion without a gun?!!" Just shows you what we Americans are conditioned to.

Series 4 was the only one expanded to three parts (wish all them had been three), and there was a gap of seven years between Series 5 & 6, and three years between 6 and 7, the final one. A minor complaint: the outer box is on the flimsy side and mine arrived a bit damaged even though it was still shrink-wrapped.

Highly, highly recommended.

The original productions are outstanding in all respects; Mirren, above all, an example of towering excellence. However, those who produced the DVD's inexplicably omitted subtitles in the final two discs. This omission diminished my enjoyment because ever-present arcane British slang was much harder to pick up, much less understand, particularly when coupled with broad British accents. END-

Format: DVD
Arguably the best of all televised criminal procedural series, UK's PRIME SUSPECT is now available as a complete series from Acorn Media. Oscar© winner Helen Mirren is Detective Jane Tennison. Obsessed and profoundly flawed, we follow her through the ranks of England's Metropolitan Police as she solves gritty, ghastly crimes while battling personal demons and inter office prejudice and pointed sexism.

Much more than a gripping murder mystery, Mirren's Tennison is one of the truly great character creations of our time. Universally praised, the series received more than 20 significant international awards.

It's so rare when a TV series finds the right mix of on-screen actors and behind-the-scene talent to create not only gripping murder mysteries but also indelible characters that ring true in the real world that we recognize. The who-dunits work as crackling stand alone dramas but when seen as a whole they are amped to another level as we watch a tough but insecure woman attempt to prove herself in a literally bloody, cut-throat man's world.

Created by crime writer Lynda La Plante, the series features some of Britain's biggest stars including Ralph Fiennes, Tom Wilkinson, David Thewlis, Frank Finlay and many others. If you missed the original broadcasts in the US on "Masterpiece Theatre" and "Mystery!" in the early 90s, you can see it as a massive linear novel. Mirren's Tennison hunts serial killers and investigates police corruption and is moved around as she steps on toes and battles alcohol. The seventh series comes to a fitting close: Jane Tennison makes a big mistake in the murder case she in which she is involved, deals with her approaching retirement and realizes her father is dying.

I don't know about this particular DVD, but I've found other Region 2 DVD's to be a bit darker than their U.S. counterparts. Still perfectly acceptable, however.
