I have loved the Lynda La Plant series Prime Suspect. Jane Tennison is an ambitious cop who wants to go to the top. But it isn't easy for a female – in a man amibiton is ok, in a woman it is seen negatively. She is seen as a bit of a bitch by her colleagues BUT this makes it more enjoyable. She is sharp, she is rude, she is irreverant and she doesn't care. She sucks at relationships – but doesn't see it. This series traces her rise in the ranks, her series of high profile cases and her growth as a human being. Tennison is in a man's world and taking them all on – her superiors, her colleagues and her suspects. She tries but she doesn't have the feminine touch really. Once Tennison is on the case she is like a pitbull and won't let go. Good old fashioned police work saves the day – with a touch of inspiration. Tennison has no self doubt – she knows she is the best and sets out to prove it case after case. This is one of THE best murder/dectective series ever. Helen Mirren is at her best here – she is Tennison, so believable and focused. I am writing this while the complete series is on a really great special – snap it up, this is a bargain you will really enjoy!!!
Prime Suspect is a tense, uncompromising drama by distinguished dramatist and novelist Lynda La Plante. This gritty benchmark crime series stars Oscar, Emmy & Golden Globe Award Winner Helen Mirren as the formidable Detective Jane Tennison. A skilled, tough and determined top class detective, Tennison proves more than a match against criminals and colleagues alike.
