An enjoyable end to the long running series,
This review is from: Prime Suspect: 7 - The Final Act [DVD] (DVD)
Prime Suspect 7 may not be the best of the Prime Suspect series but it certainly of a higher quality than most similar British or American series.
It opens with DCI Tenisson a month away from retirement and more dependent on alcohol than ever before. She is put in charge of the case of a missing schoolgirl. Along the way she tries to come to terms with her drinking problem as well as dealing with her seriously ill father and the rest of her family.
Helen Mirren is again superb as the tough yet vulnerable Tenisson. I felt the plot wasn't up to the standard of previous shows and the crucial clue comes to Tenisson's notice a little too conveniently rather than by good detective work or her trademark interview technique.
I'm not giving away much by saying that you shouldn't expect a happy ending to this long running and ground breaking series but it still a very satisfying one.
