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
Excellent acting , great stories, great suspense, very realistic senarios- no Hollywood!
She solves murder cases, often very similar to the ones that her male counterparts solve in the British mysteries.
Be aware, the cases may not always end to your satisfaction--just like real life crimes and punishment.
Helen Mirren was awesome in this series. I bought the collection as a gift for my husband. We both enjoyed the program so much.Published 3 days ago by Dee HS

|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.
