Editorial Reviews

From the creator of Prime Suspect

“Smartly crafted and acted all the way” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Full of great writing and great acting” —EW.com
“Great crime series” —NPR
“A British spin on the Law & Order format” —The Boston Globe

Volumes I-XXII

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

Special Features

Format: DVD
Set is a complex multi-faceted plot series. Intriguing investigation progresses with story carried to a verdict. 22 created since 1997. Adult gritty fare, graphic scenes, language. ALSO: superb scripts and confrontational characters. Contemporary rapid change and split screen filming. Trial & Retribution is edgily compelling. Tough cops doing their job. Each episode is feature length so this set is a whole lot of entertainment cheaper than theater tickets for the same number of hours of viewing.

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)

SUBTITLES available
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.

An awesome mystery detective series. Lots of twists and turns and you will be surprised how each episode ends up. The actors and actresses are well matched for their parts in this series. Good writing for the script. Interesting twists on relationships that take place during this series as well.

I enjoyed this so much until I was looking for more. Is there another series like this one? This was great. The whole experience with the tape was fantastic from the price to the delivery of the package and the viewing of the series.

This set is an amazing bargain. 18 disks; 22 episodes; 51 hours of entertainment for $35. The stories are good, and the characters are interesting to follow through the series. I particularly liked the British courtroom scenes. I found the intensity and anger of the homicide team members a bit unsettling; I would expect such anger to eventually destroy the team. Somehow the series does not quite come together as well as the creator's other series (Prime Suspect), but the series is definitely worth the price.

This Series is along the lines of a British Isle 'Law and Order' type Series.
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
to play.

It is such a shame. This series is so well written, and well acted, except for the star. He over acts. His anger is too angry. See Gloria Swanson in Sunset Blvd. Should have put someone else in the starring role. I've only watched the first 2 seasons, but every one is a great story. As a reformed 50 year smoker, it's hard to watch all that chain smoking. That, of course, is the part that he's playing, but he just overdoes everything.

This program is acceptable. The cinematography is different, lots of use of split screen shots.
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.

Best Detective Series Ever. I watch all the BBC and Canadian detective series and this is the very finest. Full of emotion realism and candor. The writing is superb! The acting is superb. It's better than Foyles War or Detective Morris or even prime Suspect because the endings all take place in court - which is riveting.
