Great crime drama, but here is my question? Does George Arthur Marlow fit the profile of a serial killer? Where are the clues or the insight into the psychosis that would cause him to brutally kill six women?
His mother may have been the catalyst but it was never properly explained...
It's interesting to see a crime drama before DNA profiling and before mobile phones.
Much of the story involves Tennison missing calls to the station or dodging calls from her boss, but DCI Tennison manages to hide from her bosses for 24 hours - is this credible? Can a police commander not even find his own SIO?
Despite the holes, it's fabulous gritty police procedure crime drama complete with chauvinism, bigotry and bent coppers!
A classic! JP :)
