Steel in the mind
29 October 2008 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

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
