While shes giving a talk to the school kids Tennsion says she has been a cop for 22 years meaning she joined the force in 1976. However in Prime Suspect 6 (2003) She is supposed to have completed over 30 years service but she would be 3 years short. See more »

Comes Close to outshining PS1
15 October 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Prime Suspect 5 is as close as I have seen to outshining the original (though truth be known I have not see 2 or 3). The first thing we notice about PS5 is that Jane Tennison has a new hairdo, and has been moved to a different area (she's there to terrorise those men at Manchester now), and there is a line in the beginning of the film that captures the mood of the station perfectly:

"That bloody Jane Tennison, she'll be storming into your nic, the balls of your best officers trailing from her jaws, spraying people with claret, calling people masons, threatening resignation. Well I just wanted to let you know I'm not a complete maniac." And this line is said by Tennison herself!!!

Jane Tennison's investigations lead her this time into the world of organised crime and drugs, when she goes after a man known as "the street". What makes this miniseries so interesting is that it keeps you gripped until the very last frame, especially when you find out the person who is leaking information to the bad guys is ****************** (thought I was going to tell you didn't you?)

Twists and turns in the plot, an excellent storyline and excellent performances on every part (though Mirren seems to make them all fade into the background with her superior acting ability - I'm a biased member of the HMAS, and I'm the biggest fan of Helen Mirren to ever be, especially because I'm 15!!).

Thankyou, Helen, Thankyou, Lynda LaPlante, and thankyou, channel seven (for actually showing the series - prime suspect is scarcely available on video to buy or hire over here in Oz) - but I'm still waiting for 2 & 3!!!! .....you fink whateva you want babyluv, whateva tickle ya fancey, whateva lift ya dress......

9 out of 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
