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.

    I Love This Show!!!!!

    I really enjoy almost all of the mystery and crime drama series that come out of the UK. I viewed a preview of this series on a DVD for another British series and purchased Set 1. Long story short I love this show. I now own all 4 of the sets that are available to purchase on DVD. The show is so well done and what's amazing for me as an American is it's a crime drama and if memory serves me right now there's only 1 episode where a gun is fired! This is intelligent storytelling! I definitely recommend this!
