Editorial Reviews

"Full of great writing and great acting" --EW.com
"A British spin on the Law & Order format" --The Boston Globe

Lynda La Plante (Prime Suspect) brings her trademark intensity and depth of characterization to this gripping British crime series. Each feature-length drama traces a crime from commission to courtroom, revealing the complex motives and machinations of the police, the accused, and the attorneys. At the same time, the series never loses sight of the victims and their families, compassionately showing the scars left as a consequence of crime.

David Hayman (Hope and Glory) and Victoria Smurfit (About a Boy) star as DCS Mike Walker and DCI Roisin Connor, two former rivals who share a fanatical devotion to their profession. In these three cases, they investigate a schoolteacher’s murder complicated by racial tensions, the tragic death of a toddler, and the killing of a politically prominent couple in their home. Created by the "playwright laureate of women crime-stoppers" (NPR’s Weekend Edition), this unflinching detective drama boasts innovative direction and daring storytelling.

Contains graphic scenes

UK TV sure knows how to find a twist for excellent crime mystery drama. "Trial & Retribution" is much more than just cops catching criminals. This series' episodes begin with the crime, progress through the investigation, continues with the trial and conviction. Throughout each 2-hour-plus episode, viewers get close and personal with the lives of all involved: victims, accused, cops, lawyers, judges, family, and friends. It's similar to seeing into the personal lives of leads in "Midsomer Murder".

It is not the humorous look at criminals as seen in "Raffles", a great new release. This DVD set box warns of graphic scenes--a huge understatement.
Graphic = lots of blood, nudity, language, extreme violence, and graphic morgue & crime location scenes. Once beyond the graphic scenes, there is some excellent writing, intrigue, suspenseful plot, and the short bits of romance, family life, and relationships of the show's characters.
IT IS NOT FOR KIDS--but 5 stars for adults with a strong stomach & fortitude.

The series leads include: DS Mike Walker (David Hayman-'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas')
DCI Roisin Connor (Victoria Smurfit-'The Shell Seekers' 'Ballykissangel')
Dr. Jean Mullins (Gemma Jones-'The Dutchess of Duke Street' 'Spooks or MI-5')
DS David Satchell (Dorian Lough)
DS Palmer (Vince Leigh-'Foyles War')

3 DVDs, 3 feature-length+ episodes, SUBTITLES, bonus photos, bio, filmograaphies.

PARADISE LOST: PART 1&2
Evidence following a violent murder of a white girl leads to the arrest of her boyfriend, Milton Jones (Clint Dyer-'Hope Springs'), black and suffering from drug resultant amnesia. The apparently closed investigation leads to racial tension and renewed investigations takes on additional twists & turns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic drama August 10, 2010

I own all of the Trial & Retribution series and set 4 ranks among the best. The combination of crime mystery, principal character development, and notable differences between the British and American court systems make this a compelling view. While I enjoy many British dramas, the characters in the Trial & Retribution series and the Blue Murder series are absolutely the best.I truly hope this series continues.
