Overview

In yet another subtle, powerful performance, Helen Mirren truly inhabits the role of Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison. The Final Act finds her searching for Sallie Strudy, a 14-year-old girl presumed murdered. Facing the hospitalization of her father, descending deeper into alcoholism, and resisting pressure to retire quietly, Tennison vows to bring Sallie's killer to justice before ending her career. Along the way she forges a surprising friendship with Penny Philips Laura Greenwood, the missing girl's best friend. In the teenager's longing and fierce independence, the aging cop sees something of her younger self. Tennison emerges as a deeply flawed but ultimately sympathetic human being -- one who accepts responsibility for her choices, knowing full well the price she and others have paid. The Final Act serves as the perfectly fitting conclusion to what some critics have called the best crime series ever televised. Special features include a 50-minute behind-the-scenes featurette, a photo gallery, and cast filmographies. Prime Suspect: The Final Act originally aired on PBS's Masterpiece Theatre on November 12 and 19, 2006.

    Prime Jane Tennison

    Helen Mirren is outstanding as always as Jane Tennison. A tough case with tough characters. May it never be the last.
