Jane and Reg are taken out of the city when parents of a young girl are found murdered in a hotel room. Jane has a hard time convincing the young girl to speak with her about the man that killed her ...
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.
This show is like a good wine - best if savored slowly, not in one gulp. Unfortunately, most TV execs seem to think a show has to be a "10" on episode #1. There are so many shows from years gone by that would never have had their long run if today's execs had been in charge. Just think "Hill St. Blues".
"Prime Suspect" started slowly, and with many stereotypes, but has matured nicely into a better-than-average drama. The character development is good and promises to continue, and lead Maria Bello as Jane Timoney is fabulous! Great supporting cast and improving writing should guarantee a 2nd season, but we viewers have to give it a boost.
Do yourself a favor and check it out!
