Editorial Reviews

From the creator of PRIME SUSPECT

"Superb crime series" —The Sunday Times (U.K.)
"Engrossingly complex plots" —Daily Record (U.K.)

Crime-to-court suspense from Lynda La Plante

Volumes XV-XVIII

Lynda La Plante infuses Trial & Retribution with the same gritty believability and penetrating drama that marked her famed series Prime Suspect. These "smartly crafted and acted" mysteries (San Francisco Chronicle) take viewers from the crime scene to the forensics laboratory and from police headquarters to the courtroom with innovative storytelling and compelling, fully realized characters.

As DCS Mike Walker and DCI Roisin Connor, David Hayman (Sid and Nancy) and Victoria Smurfit (About a Boy) lend steely credibility to cases ripped from today’s headlines. From a man who may have been wrongly convicted of murder to a seemingly untouchable Ukrainian billionaire, these four feature-length episodes take an unflinching look at criminal investigations and the scars left on the survivors.

Format: DVD
Set 5 is intense, complex multi-faceted plots, always a bit of an extra twist. Cliff hanging intrigue. Violent crime, progresses through cops to verdict. Box warns of disturbing images, nudity, and language--a huge understatement.
Graphic morgue & crime location scenes. Once beyond the graphic scenes, there is some excellent writing, gripping plot, and relationships of characters. Often confrontational.
NOT KID STUFF--for YA+ with a strong tolerance.
Contemporary filming, often using split screen.

Series leads: DS Mike Walker (David Hayman -'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas') seem it all
DCI Roisin Connor (Victoria Smurfit -'Berkeley Square' 'Ballykissangel') hard body and attitude
DS David Satchell (Dorian Lough -`Notting Hill'); DS Sam Palmer (Vince Leigh)
Dr. Mullins (Gemma Jones -`Dutchess of Duke St' `H Potter'), forensic pathologist for the last "T&R" time (Conviction).

SUBTITLES on all 4 feature-length 90 min episodes, each in 2 parts.
The Rules of the Game
Rent-girl, Sofia (Olga Fedori -oh my!!) dead in a trunk at Heathrow. Suspect a rich Ukrainian who confesses to violent sex upon his release. Decease's sister Maryna (Branka Katic) assults the man, or was it self defense? Walker's after the Ukrainian; Roisin thinks it's another. At odds, the case gets messy, even the outcome.

Kill the King
Walker's Dr friend murdered & Gary Webster (John Lynch) blamed but disappears. Lover-Dr Neelah Shahjani (Shelly Conn -`Silent Witness') confesses finding body with a needle. Dr. Lawson (Ben Miles -`Lark Rise to Candleford' `Forsyte Saga') also suspect. His wife played by Hattie Morahan. Dark secrets and operating table clues emerge.

I have the entire series and it is very absorbing. I think they did the right thing in ending it when they did as there is so much possible of a good thing. The characters are highly credible, and David Hayman is excellent in his portrayel of "Mike" the driven and totally (at times) over the top DCI, who would be absolutely unliveable with !!! Well worth watching not once but twice !!

It’s been a long wait since the last North American release of episodes of the long-running TRIAL & RETRIBUTION police drama. It’s been well worth the wait, but it has also served to provide a bit of distance from the previous, stellar episodes, and the more recent, still very good, but somewhat declining-in-quality later episodes.

This set contains four two-part dramas from the show’s 11th and penultimate season. Hopefully we will soon have the final release from Acorn Media, which will, if the pattern continues, feature the last four two-part dramas in the series. This will include the fifth two-parter from season 11, and the three two-parters from the last season, season 12.

Confused? It took me some digging to figure all that out, but it was worth it to be brought up to speed.

At the centre of this fine drama is the excellent David Hayman as Det. Supt. Mike Walker, a tough, tormented and thoroughly watchable protagonist who is just a little bit shady sometimes. Since way back in the second set of episodes released in North America, Victoria Smurfit as DCI Roisin Connor has been Hayman’s main professional antagonist, though they are supposed to be colleagues.

This is the most obvious area of the writing starting to bog down. Their conflicts are no longer heady criticism between two strong personalities; suddenly we have two immature, foul-mouthed teenagers going at it hammer and tong. Hayman can usually get away with it because Walker’s world-weariness is the obvious source of his aggression. But Smurfit has no obvious motivation (although a personal issue is brought in as some sort of explanation, by the time it comes up it feels like a tacked-on excuse), and young Roisin comes across as ice cold and mean-spirited.
