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).

The younger Helen Mirren makes a great DCI (detective chief inspector). She's the perfect foil for male detectives that think her sex gets in the way of her brain. Read morePublished 4 days ago by kiltabar

I purchased this as a gift for someone in my household. We've been watching it together. We've only watched a few episodes so far. They are dated, but I simply love the mystery. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

|Region 2 different?||
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.
