A box set of 5 series' of Lynda la Plante's BAFTA-winning variation on the police procedural serial. In 'Prime Suspect 1' Helen Mirren plays DCI Jane Tennison, who takes over the running of what appears to be an open and shut murder case. However, she runs into problems as her investigations lead her into the male-dominated world of policework and the hunt for a serial killer. 'Prime Suspect 2' sees DCI Tennison called in to head an investigation into the death of a young black woman, whose body is found in the back garden of a house in London. As she begins to investigate, she finds that she is having to deal with a whole web of issues surrounding racism and sexism within the police force, as well as tracking down a killer still on the loose. In 'Prime Suspect 3' Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison is back on duty, transferred from Southampton Row to the Soho Vice Squad. Ordered to clear out prostitutes and rent boys in the area, Tennison is soon embroiled in another murder case when the corpse of a 17-year-old rent boy is found in a transexual's flat. In 'Prime Suspect 4 - Inner Circles' the murder of a country club manager in an affluent commuter suburb of London is quickly blamed on youths from a nearby housing estate. Tennison is not so sure, and soon finds herself caught up in local politics. 'Prime Suspect 4 - The Lost Child' sees newly-promoted Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison investigating a missing child case at London's Southampton Row. The trail leads to a serial sex offender recently released from a custodial treatment centre. When an arrest attempt backfires, Tennison finds herself caught up in a siege situation. In 'Prime Suspect 4 - The Scent of Darkness', when a series of copycat killings take place that resemble those in the first 'Prime Suspect', Tennison is suspended from duty. Can it be that George Marlow is innocent, as he insisted all along? And how will this development affect Jane's blossoming relationship with psychologist Patrick Schofield? Finally in 'Prime Suspect 5', with a transfer to Manchester, Tennison (Mirren) finds herself lecturing school children on law and order. She demands something a little more up her usual alley, and is soon investigating the murder of a drug dealer. When a 14-year-old boy confesses to the killing, Tennison suspects that someone else is responsible.
