A series of brutal sex murders disturbingly similar to the pattern of Superintendent Jane Tennison's first major case leads to the awful suggestion that she may have caught the wrong man the first time.
Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison's investigation of the murder of a Bosnian refugee leads her to one, or possibly two, Serbian war criminals determined to silence the last witness to a massacre a decade before.
Fitz returns to Manchester after living 10 years in Australia with his wife and youngest son. He is soon drawn into the investigation of a British soldier who may have been traumatized by his years serving in Northern Ireland.
Tennison on a new beat investigates the killing of a drug runner, with the runner's employer, "The Street," as her prime suspect. Meanwhile, The Street is conducting his own investigation into the killing, with the help of his team of hoodlums and his vicious Rottweilers. And as Tennison rankles that her subordinates accuse her of sleeping her way to the top, she begins an affair with her married supervisor. Written by

The acting in the Prime Suspect series has been consistently excellent, and Errors of Judgement is no different. Steven Mackintosh, a classically underrated British actor fouls the screen with his characterisation of a Mancunian mob boss, all self-possession and narcotic-power miasma. It's hideous - and compelling, of course.
Naturally, Mirren's Tennison is equal to him. Just. The secret thrill of Prime Suspect is wondering whether the enduring but fragile Tennison is about to get comeuppance for her previous tenacity and success. A seedy subplot with another odious throwback DCS runs alongside; a horrible murder in a disused public baths completes a new benchmark in dramatic squalor. I don't care enough about anyone for it to stay with me though. 5/10
