In the first 'Prime Suspect' the motif was gender politics; in the second it was race; here the motif is children, and society's failure of them. Tennison starts her new job with the Vice Squad only to become embroiled in a murder inquiry and potential Police cover-up. Ignoring warnings from the sinister Commander Chiswick and his dupe, Halliday, Tennison continues to probe, ably supported by her team (an excellent ensemble cast), and, in particular, by the "old school" DS Otley (the astoundingly good Tom Bell), a former thorn in her side who proves to be hardworking, invidious or otherwise. Excellent.

This is probably the best of the Prime Suspect series. The script is strong, Helen Mirren is at the top of her game, and she's supported by some of the best character actors around--Ciaran Hinds, David Thewlis and Tom Bell, especially. The confrontation between Mirren and Hinds at the end is an acting tour de force. The two of them together are just magic. This is a very, very dark story, but it's not cynical and hopeless like Prime Suspect 5. Tennison does win in the end, if only on points, and the message seems to be that Good can triumph, if only a hero is willing to sacrifice enough. In this case, Tennison's sacrifice might have been her very soul.

She is just excellent and what a good story, I've bought the whole series. I think La Plante is a wonderful story teller and she entertains me every time.

I'm running out of superlatives for the Prime Suspect series. Series 3 is another gripping crime drama, this time set against the background of the world of London rent boys. Despite it's lengthy we were tempted to watch in one sitting, though we didn't quite manage it!

The highlights this time are long scenes showing DCI Tennison interviews witnesses and suspects. This shows Helen Mirren at her finest, portraying an intelligent police detective who knows exactly how to structure an interview to get the truth from people.

The theme of police corruption also looms large right from the very start. Glimpses of Tennison's rather sad personal life are also shown.

She's still off the ciggies though!

Format: DVD
Good to see all the existing Prime Suspects series released on DVD for make no mistake, they are superb. This one, over 3 hours long is gripping. Jayne Tennison (played by the wonderful Helen Mirren) becomes involved in the death of a rent boy found in a burnt out flat. As she investigates his death, she finds a lot more than she bargained for. I wont give too much away for it is very involving. A friendly word of warning though, the storyline is disturbing. If you have a home cinema set up be prepared for a viewing and listening experience for the soundtrack, encoded in dolby surround is superb. If you buy this, I am sure you will buy the others too, for they can be bought at a great price. Do not miss them by any circumstances.
