Overview

Lynda La Plante, creator of the award-winning Prime Suspect -- widely regarded as the ultimate intelligent crime drama -- scores again with Trial & Retribution. From the scene of the crime to the tactics in the courtroom, these British thrillers explore the bitter internal rivalries among police investigators, the political pressures of high-profile cases, and the legal maneuverings of defense attorneys and prosecutors. As always, La Plante plumbs the emotional depths of her characters with dark and often disturbing results. In these riveting feature-length mysteries, the police probe an abandoned house concealing multiple murders; a dysfunctional family with a deeply troubled musical prodigy; the mysterious disappearance of a well-connected woman; and a shadowy sex club for London's elite. The series stars David Hayman, Kate Buffery, and Victoria Smurfit, with guest stars Charles Dance, Gemma Jones, Ben Cross, Tim McInnerny, and Simon Callow. Special features include interviews, text descriptions of the Criminal Investigation Department, and a biography of La Plante. This set contains four Trial & Retribution telefilms that aired on Britain's ITV from 2002-4.

Lynda La Plante triumphs again. Although the first series was compelling, you won't believe what happens in this second series -- and I don't want to spoil it for you. I found myself sympathetic to Walker -- and then despising his ambition and arrogance. The plots are intriguing and dark, but equally interesting are the relationships among the "coppers" and their complex and realistic private lives. Also fun are the trial sequences with the witty, egotistical lawyers -- and often you aren't quite sure how things will turn out until the very end. Law and Order is interesting but superficial in comparison, and McCoy makes things so earnest. This British version is far more complex, character-driven, dark, and cynical -- and thoroughly engrossing.

This is a first rate crime series with outstanding scripts and excellent acting. The characters are flawed human beings with a lot of depth. I recommend the series highly
