Crime-to-court suspense from Lynda La Plante
Created and written by Lynda La Plante—“the playwright laureate of women crime-stoppers” (NPR’s Weekend Edition)—this long-running British series displays the same hard-bitten sensibility and emotional resonance that made Prime Suspect a television landmark. The 22 feature-length mysteries in this complete collection each follow a case from the scene of the crime to the courtroom verdict. Boasting innovative storytelling and uncompromising realism, Trial & Retribution powerfully portrays the psychological scars that violence leaves behind.
David Hayman (Sid and Nancy) stars as DCS Mike Walker, with Kate Buffery (Wish Me Luck) and Victoria Smurfit (About a Boy) as his partners. Guest stars include Hugh Dancy, Iain Glen, Simon Callow, Greg Wise, Gemma Jones, Corin Redgrave, Charles Dance, Rosamund Pike, and Michael Fassbender.
Contains graphic scenes, nudity, and coarse language

Team: DCSI Mike Walker (David Hayman) tough, bity, seasoned
DCI Roisin Connor (Victoria Smurfit -'Berkeley Square') hot hard body, an attitude, a risk
DS David `Satch'ell (Dorian Lough -`Notting Hill')
DS Sam Palmer (Vince Leigh)
These episodes have been previously released in smaller sets, and yet available in that form, but not for the same cost.
This is adult entertainment due to graphic content, some nudity, and language.
Although the Series, itself is engaging, the Acorn Disks are a TERRIBLE quality,
and I had to use 2 machines and NUMEROUS tries for each disk to get them
The crime investigation is interesting, the perpetrator arrests that then advances to the court trials are equally interesting. The constant maneuvering by the individual investigators to advance their own careers is suitably slimy.
Neither Investigator Walker nor Connor are very pleasant people, you get the impression that they just want to close the case and if they happen to arrest the guilty party, well, that's just gravy. Walker seems particularly corrupt (or maybe just inept).
The insertion of the various squalid domestic dramas of the police investigators slowed the action. Author La Plante could have improved this crime to court drama by foregoing the tedious, tawdry off duty personal lives of Investgators Walker and Connor, etc. Dysfunctional families are not the stuff of entertainment and they are not indicative of "exceptional writing".
The guest actors are very good and really add to the quality of this program. I really enjoyed watching them perform as various perpetrators and victims. They pretty much make the show worthy of viewing. All in all, it's ok, but not in the same league as Prime Suspect.
