Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
After the multiple, shorter stories of Prime Suspect 4, the fifth edition of the long-running BBC series returns to the typical format of a single, extended mystery. Although the new setting of Manchester provides a fresh wrinkle and a respite from the London gloom, most other aspects of the story are familiar, if not downright comforting: an inappropriate romance, a convoluted mystery, and a strong sociopolitical subtext. At this point, Helen Mirren's Jane Tennison is no longer a feminist pioneer but simply a veteran detective out to prove herself in her new environs. And although the central police case is well-realized, the real drama comes from Tennison's fallibility and outright blunders; the installment's subtitle, "Errors of Judgement," provides a nice summation of the plot. As with many long-running serials, the tendency at this late date is to exaggerate the stakes. But writer Guy Andrews and a fine supporting cast do their best to balance out the story's heightened emotions with gritty understatement. Five installments in, Prime Suspect may no longer be a revelation, but the craftsmanship remains top-notch.

    Prime Suspect 5

    These are good detective stories with a bit of a different slant, a woman, with her own personal issues, leading the investigation. Helen Mirren is excellent and the supporting cast is outstanding.
