"Tennison seizes the opportunity to head a murder investigation--something she should have done long ago, had she not been passed over by her male superiors time and again. With a suspect already identified and her own team openly hostile, she uncovers errors and conflicting facts that point to a coverup within the force."--Container.

The hostility, deceit and disharmony of the players was too much for me. While much of that was present in the Prime Suspect Tennison, the protagonists were more friendly. This episode gave me no pleasure and I cancelled the other holds.

In addition to good writing and great acting, these two episodes are great history. Women in positions of power today owe their success to women who fought the good fight years ago. The reaction and passive aggressive response to a woman in charge is subtle but pervasive as Mirren's character finally gets a long overdue (tentative and probationary) promotion.

A compelling plot, great characters --- and Helen Mirren. Five stars.

DCI Jane Tennyson is the foremother of all the hard-boiled women detectives working to make it in the male-dominated world of investigation. Is Jane flawed? Exquisitely so. Is she dogged and smart? You bet. And she solves the crimes with no cellphone! This is the series that catapulted the wonderful Helen Mirren to stardom.

Very good series. Helen Mirren is excellent (just a little self-involved)! I'm looking forward to season 2.

Saw this when it originally came out. This is where I discovered Helen Mirren. Am watching entire series again before I watch the finale they recently did.
Wasn't even tempted to watch U. S. tv version as I knew no one could do it better than Mirren.

Helen Mirren in a 1991 detective show. I enjoyed it and have the next series in the queue.

Mirren plays a character that isn't very sympathetic, but does it just as well as always. The cases are interesting.
