Superb Drama. Brava Helen!,
This review is from: Prime Suspect 1-5 [DVD] (DVD)
The PRIME SUSPECT series has to be one of the all time greats to
air on television. Not since TINKER TAILOR,SOLDIER,SPY and
SMILEY'S PEOPLE has there been such a great dramatic series that
you can sit and watch straight through if you have the time.
Helen Mirren was little known in America until this series. She
became an institution. Each part of the series is outstanding.
We first meet her as she faces discrimination in the workplace but
proves her mettle by the end of Episode 1. Great acting from
Zoe Wanamaker. Tom Bell is her pefect menace. It is great that
the entire series is out on DVD and will whet our appetite for
Part 6 which should air in 2004. Many thanks.
