Prime Suspect

Episode #104

In the first four, one-hour episodes, DCI Jane Tennison feels she has once again been discriminated against when her superiors pass her over in favor of DCI John Shefford to head a murder investigation. Shefford quickly identifies George Marlow, recently released from prison, as his prime suspect. But when DCI Shefford suffers a massive heart attack, Tennison steps up to assume leadership of the investigation. As the four hours conclude, viewers understand why DCI Tennison has what it takes to succeed in a traditionally male work world. [51 minutes] TV-PG Closed Captioning
