Format: DVD
"Prime Suspect-The Final Act" is the seventh and as the title implies the last Prime Suspect (At least starring the estimable Helen Mirren). It continues and then brings to a conclusion the career of one the most resonant and iconic female characters in TV history. And it doesn't find her in particularly fine fettle.

This episode (shown over two 2 hour instalments originally on ITV) is written by Frank Deasy, not Linda LaPlante, and finds Jane Tennison nearing retirement and descending into alcoholism. The murder of a fourteen year old schoolgirl Sallie sturdy( Maxine Barton) once again brings Tennison into conflict with her superiors and the victims father (Tony Lewis) but more poignantly brings out her long submerged maternal instincts when she forms a bond with the victims best friend Penny (Laura Greenwood). Meanwhile her father (Frank Finlay) is dying of cancer and She also bumps into her old nemesis Bill Otley (Tom Bell) and they begin a process of reconciliation before Otley is shot by suspect for the murder of Sallie. Inexorably suspicion falls on Sean (Stephen Tomkinson) the father of Penny and headmaster of the school the girls attended before the rug is pulled from under the audience's expectations for the climax.

Mirren is again quite outstanding, allowing a vulnerability and defiant nobility into her portrayal. Tennison has always been so busy fighting all the prejudices embroiled in her profession this side of her character has never surfaced before and Mirren plays it with such lightness of touch and empathy that it's almost mesmerising to watch. An absolute master class in acting. The relationship with Penny is beautifully rendered also and high praise must go to young Laura Greenwood for her perceptive blend of youthful defiance and vulnerability.

Format: DVD
Recently screened on PBS to much acclaim is Prime Suspect 7 really going to be Jane Tennison's final act? Or will Jane perhaps be bought out of retirement sometime soon? The pundits and even Helen Mirren herself say no, and that this is definitely Jane's last foray into the underbelly of London's crime scene. But I think not, one thing is for sure, Jane will definitely be back.

In this last chapter we meet a beaten-down, cynical and desperately lonely Jane Tennison, whose impending retirement and restlessness is exacerbated by her love of drink. The Detective Inspector has devoted for life to rooting out the bad guys, but now in her sixties, without a partner and childless and alienated from her family - with her father (Frank Finlay) dying of cancer - life has become a time of reckoning.

She had devoted her life to this work at a tremendous personal cost and now through the through the misty miasma of a hangover, which Tennison nurses with vodka before driving off to work, she leads an investigation into the disappearance of Sally, a 14-year-old girl. When her body is eventually discovered and it is learned that she was pregnant, suspicion immediately falls on her black boyfriend, and then on her devoted father Tony (Gary Lewis).

Perhaps it is only Penny (Laura Greenwood) Sally's best friend who can unlock the key to what happened to the girl. As the investigation continues and Jane and her colleagues work to identify their prime suspect, it soon becomes evident that Sally had an inappropriate relationship with Penny's father Sean (Stephen Tomkinson), who also happens to be a headmaster at one of the local schools.

Jane must conduct her search for Sally's killer whilst also trying to keep her desperate need for alcohol hidden.

The series: Prime Suspect" has of course been hugely popular and for good reason. The quality of the scripts and story lines have always been excellent and Helen Mirren - well what can one say that hasn't been said before about this stunning actress.

But this episode exceeds all of this.

The story line and the acting had me gasping for breath. It is so moving, so genuine that frankly, anything else doesn't rate against it.

High quality TV is rare enough these days. This however is the exception. It's hard to imagine a TV program that could be better than this one.

Essential viewing.

Prime suspect has always constituted complelling viewing.

This latest creation is no exception.

It's all here,the drama,suspense,intrigue and more!.

DCI Tennison's "exit" is dignified yet unexpected.

An essential addition to your DVD collection!.

I have the boxed set of previous Prime Suspect episodes and this was a welcome addition. As always fantastic cast and superb performances. Britain produces some wonderful programmes and to be able to watch them whenever one wishes is a great luxury, especially without ads breaking the mood.

I recently watched all of Prime Suspect again, having bought the box set. This last episode was heart wrenching and I cried on several occasions. Helen Mirren's portrayal of her character as she goes through her various issues in this - getting older, no children, no partner, the approaching death of her father , her alcohol addiction - was more than an Oscar winning performance. The death of a previous colleague as well adds to all of this. These issues are ones that we all face as we age and they are intermingled with this final case when it seems like she has lost her touch. I don't think I've ever seen a drunk portrayed in such a realistic yet gut wrenching way.
