DCI Jane Tennison has paid her dues; she has risen through the ranks of the various branches of London Metropolitan Police, attaining the heretofore unheard rank (for women) of Detective Chief Inspector. But, it is not until the heart attack and death of the popular DCI John Sheffield that Jane gets to lead a murder investigation. She expects bad attitudes and "good ole boy" bravado from colleagues (and superiors) but she is determined to do her job.

Episode #1.2
In the opening series, D.C.I. 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 cover-up within the force. Is this a single murder or the latest act of a serial killer? Tennison refuses to back off the investigation.
