As in every film she appears in, Helen Mirren takes my breath away in Prime Suspect 5. It's impossible to take your eyes off her when she's on screen, and I can watch her movies endlessly and always find new depth in her characterizations. This entry in the series is just as good as 1,2,3,6 and 7 (4 was still good, but broken up into shorter stories, so for me not as impactful). Mirren is divine, and as much as I love all her performances, her embodiment of the complex, lonely and deeply ethical Tennison will always be my favorite.

Superior police detective drama--it doesn't get better than this!! I watched every episode of this series as it came out and recently rented the whole series and watched it from beginning to end. It is enthralling and mesmerizing--I never get tired of it.

I particularly like that Prime Suspect 5 is set in Manchester--great accents! Too bad they don't do subtitles--it takes a little time to get used to.

I remember watching Prime Suspect 5: Errors Of Judgement when it was shown on PBS. Nothing was on television at the time and I was scanning different channels. I started watching the miniseries in the midst of the first episode. After the first ten minutes I was hooked! I even watched it again when PBS decided to repeat it!!Helen Mirren is amazing as Detective Jane Tennison!In this outing Tennison is demoted and starts working in Manchester. As soon as Tennison gets back on duty she recieves an assignment: a murder. I don't want to go into too many details. There are a few twists and turns and suspense moments. You will even keep guessing at the end.We even still get to see more of Jane's personal life.The standout performance in this set goes to Steven Mackintosh hands down!! Everytime he's on screen your eyes will stay on him. He's so despicable, cocky, and clever but likable at the same time.

I have been watching these shows for the last month and have thoroughly enjoyed all of them, until I saw 5. This is the worst writing of any of them so far with major overacting by the bad guy, completely unrealistic really. All of the gritty realism has been stripped away and replaced with soap opera antics. The writers have also turned Helen Mirren's character into a total dunderhead. What she does at the end is beyond words. It's as if the writers or producers decided to model the show after Murder She Wrote or Matlock or even Columbo. Her character is so much smarter than that and deserves better. Nobody with her level of experience and intelligence would behave so stupidly or put her life at such risk. Even the case is uninteresting. Everyone who watched it with me felt no compassion for the victims or anyone involved for that matter. Usually we are all transfixed from beginning to end. Also, the Manchester accents become hard to decipher at times and in the case of the bad guy, extremely annoying. I certainly hope that 6 and 7 are better than 5 and go back to the quality storytelling that made 1 through 4 so good.

I originally watched the series 5 episodes while in London on the BBC. I was enthralled by the depth of the characters and the real life portrayal of the events. Helen Mirren is in a class by herself. "The Street" is one of the best "bad guys" ever created, cocky, bold and brutal. This series may be too realistic for some, it can be a little disturbing at times. Best cop series I have ever seen.

I am finally on Season 7. I have always liked Helen Mirren's work. But this has been riveting. She understands this role so well and watching her evolve over the years as she attempts to navigate the politics, the suspects, her superiors and her colleagues has been just as dynamic as the story lines. If you appreciate great acting, good drama/suspense, and good detective stories watch these. You won't be able to stop. It is not the fast wrap up of Law and Order which I love. It is a little closer to Homicide Life on the Streets but with a lot more character development.

What can I say? This is another excellent episode in this British Crime Drama TV series. The British obviously know a thing or two about crime dramas, and this is just one example of it. Helen Mirren is again superb in her role of police inspector Jane Tennison. If you're a fan of the series, Ms. Mirren's work, or just simply British TV, this is a show you shouldn't miss. Overall, well done. I can't praise any of these shows enough. You have to simply see it for yourself.

Helen Mirren is a very good actress and plays the part of Detective Inspector Jane Tennison well. She is a very outspoken person and, despite her 22 years of successful police work, she is transferred to a slum area because of her outspokenness and insistence on doing things her own way. The officers with whom she now needs to work cause her problems. Her superior officer at first only gives her speeches to make. However, when a murder is committed, he assigns the case to her. He is a married man who wants to sleep with her. She also wants to sleep with him. His police philosophy is radically different than hers. While she wants to rid the area of crime, he just wants to "contain" it, stop it from spreading. Her new crew of about a half dozen officers mocks her behind her back. The principle criminal, called The Street, is highly respected by the slum dwellers and even by her crew. Viewers will see her show her determination to clean up crime in the area.
