      Season 2 – Prime Suspect

      1992 Crime Drama Mystery & Thriller List
      Reviews 50% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score After a colleague suffers a near-fatal heart attack, Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison takes over an investigation into the murder of Delia Mornay, a young prostitute. The case is challenging enough in its own right, since Jane quickly determines that there is very little tangible evidence against the main suspect, an ex-convict. Worse, however, she suspects there is a cover-up going on in her department, where her male team of investigators isn't making a secret of their displeasure to be working for a woman. After a second body is discovered, what started as a single murder inquiry turns into an investigation stretching back over 10 years, forcing Jane to devote every waking hour to the case and taking a toll on her home life with her recently divorced live-in lover, Peter Rawlins.

      Previous Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly Despite the fact that Prime Suspect II isn't as strong as the original, it's still comparable with the best cop shows on American TV. B+ Apr 12, 2019 Full Review Tony Scott Variety Director John Strickland builds personalities and situations into stark, sure-handed drama. Feb 2, 2018 Full Review David Hiltbrand People Magazine The crime at the heart of the matter isn't quite as intriguing as the one Mirren faced first time around. But the actress is again superb as a woman tenaciously pursuing a demanding job. B+ Apr 12, 2019 Full Review Next
