Overview

No one explores the human cost of crime and punishment with more depth and resonance than producer Lynda La Plante, creator of the critically lauded Prime Suspect. In this Law & Order-like British series, La Plante follows cases from the commission of the crime to the trial of the accused. She examines grueling, pressure-packed police investigations in all their gritty detail -- the sudden insight that can crack a case and the careless mistake that can jeopardize justice. Going behind closed doors, she reveals the strategies of both prosecution and defense as they maneuver toward a final verdict. With its first-rate cast, innovative direction, and daring storytelling, Trial & Retribution ratchets up the suspense at every turn. No emotions are spared, and no characters emerge unscathed in this unflinching detective drama. Starring David Hayman as Detective Superintendant Michael Walker and Kate Buffery as Detective Inspector Pat North, it also features guest stars Simon Callow, Richard E. Grant, Rhys Ifans, James Wilby, Helen McCrory, Iain Glen, Hugh Dancy, and Corin Redgrave. This set contains the first four Trial & Retribution telefilms that aired on Britain's ITV from 1997-2000.
