      Season 5 – Prime Suspect

      1996 Crime Drama Mystery & Thriller List
      Reviews 62% 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 John J. O'Connor New York Times Here is a performance that will loom large in television history books. Apr 12, 2019 Full Review Tony Scott Variety Assigned a drug ring case, Tennison's crispness, independence and authority give this latest crime venture another thumbs up. Apr 12, 2019 Full Review Terry Kelleher People Magazine This cop has such a lock on our loyalty that we squirm when she loses face and pray she won't lose heart. Unlike her character, Mirren's performance is without fault. A- Apr 12, 2019 Full Review Next
