Prime Suspect - Complete Collection Barnaby Walter
Author and screenwriter Lynda La Plante has created and written some of the best dramas to come out of ITV in the past 20 years. In my opinion, Prime Suspect is right there at the top. Not just on top of La Plante"s many well written series, mysteries and characters, but at the top with the best television dramas ever to be made. Of course, Ms La Plante cannot get all the credit for the phenomenal success of this series. Much praise must be given to Dame Helen Mirren, who made the character of Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison so believable, and acted her with the highest degree of acting talent, that we began to appreciate Tennison as a real person. This may sound slightly strange, but the same goes for Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes, David Suchet as Poirot and John Thaw as Inspector Morse. These great actors become their character completely. In this rather stylishly packaged boxset, we get the entire series from 1991 to 2006 featuring (as the box boasts) 15 episodes. Although this may not seem much for a "complete collection" set (considering many American shows have 24 episodes in just one series), it does show that less is more, and by keeping the series to the occasional two-parter ITV avoided diluting the quality. The final few episodes are a co-production between ITV and American corporation WGBH Boston (who also produced Cranford, Bleak House and Lewis). The only criticism I would have with this must own box of truly excellent drama is ITV DVD"s decision to join the two part stories together to make one feature-length episode. This joining results in some episodes reaching a running time of over three hours, which, although top quality throughout, is quite a big ask in terms of sitting down and watching.
