The Prime Suspect Complete Collection box set contains 10 discs and includes all episodes from the award-winning show's seven series. Alongside Tom Bell, Helen Mirren stars in the cop drama series as the hard-edged, chain-smoking Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison; she is later promoted to Detective Superintendent. In addition to dealing with the gritty day-to-day cases Tennison has to solve--involving serial killers, rapists and child abusers--the drama also delves into her personal battles, including her marriage problems and struggle with alcoholism. As an on-going sub-plot, Prime Suspect raises the issue of sexual discrimination in the workforce, as Tennison faces the enduring battle of forging a career in this very male-dominated profession. Created by Lynda La Plante, the show was first broadcast in 1991.
The Prime Suspect Complete Collection box set provides a full retrospective of the hard-hitting detective dramas that introduced us to DCI Jane Tennison.
