Storyline

In Series 2, Tennison has proven herself and won her colleagues' grudging respect. When she is assigned to head a murder inquiry in the African Caribbean community, it seems further evidence that her star is on the rise. Suddenly she's in the thick of a racial controversy, working with a black detective who is also her former lover (guest star Colin Salmon, Keen Eddie), and dealing with prejudice in the field and on her team. Tennison begins to wonder if she's been handed a plum case or hung out to dry. Written by Anonymous

An Intense Episode with Many Victims
23 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tennison must oversee some really intense events. While she is getting a confession from her lead suspect, a young man is being interrogated in the precinct for the same crime, the murder of a young woman. The man is uncooperative and frightened and has trouble being confined. Oswald uses intense methods to get him to talk, including rather personal things. The young man uses strips of his clothing to hang himself. This leads to a full scale investigation and doubt about Oswald. It is obvious that there is quite a cover up going on, that many of the people close to the case are being dishonest. This leads to a conclusion that will knock your socks off. This show had great pacing and a commitment to excellent. As usual, Helen Mirren rises above everyone. Once again, her overzealousness gets her into trouble. She is fighting a system that makes her work three times as hard as others in her position.
