Storyline

Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison now deals with a racially charged murder. The long-dead body of a young black woman is discovered in a district recently convulsed by police brutality and which now is in the midst of a highly-charged political campaign. Her investigation is hampered by the hostility of the local populace, and the clumsy methods of some of her subordinates and irresponsible journalists make things worse. Can she solve the case before a race riot breaks out? Her job is complicated when a former lover is assigned to her command as a subordinate. Written by Reid Gagle

Trivia

In a 2006 interview, Helen Mirren stated that 'what did shock me profoundly was we had a storyline, where a house had been bought and they're re-modeling the garden and they find a dead body and then they find another one. And in my mind I was going - that's a little bit, you know, that's pushing it a bit - and then very shortly after that the Rosemary and Fred West case came about and I thought - my god. My god. Not only was it realistic. The real world went so much further'. See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Duhra: [At the inquest into Tony Allen's death in police custody, Duhra has forced Oswalde to admit that he forced Allen to return to his police cell when the suspect was mentally unstable] You had an exemplary record, Sergeant. Could it be that in some subtle way you were being tougher - harder - on this black suspect because you too are black?
Sergeant Robert Oswalde: I'm afraid your question is too subtle for me.

Tennison anyone?
21 January 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

The always calm, clear thinking, and very busy Brit Detective Jane Tennison (Mirren) is back in "Primary Suspect 2" solving a pornography laced murder case while mired in police brutality allegations and suspicions of inappropriate conduct involving an affair with a fellow cop. This edition of "PS" is more emotionally charged than the first and rumbles with racial undercurrents. However, like the first in the series, it ends abruptly with unresolved issues and plenty of room for a follow up installment. Okay stuff for sofa spuds into realistic police/crime drama tv fare out of the UK. (C+)
