Exceptions can be made in certain cases, but these apply only to more senior ranks than hers (Det. Supt). Furthermore, in 'The Final Act', Tennison tells Penny Philips that she joined the Met. as a 17-year-old probationer. She would have spent some time at Hendon, but hardly five years. See more »

Great show I hope it gets renewed for another series
22 May 2017 | by woodjwood3See all my reviews

I've just finished watching this show and I was impressed with the attention to detail, it really does transport you back in time, the acting was good as was the storey line. I never actually watched the original Prime Suspect show with Helen Mirren so I watched this show with fresh eyes and can not compare it to the original show.

I hope this gets renewed for follow up seasons.
