Prime Suspect

Episode #107

In the second Prime Suspect mini-series we find DCI Jane Tennison in top form, having built on the success of her last case and consolidated the hard won respect of her colleagues. She is relaxed and confident, but always maintaining her commitment to her work and attention to detail. When the body of a young girl is discovered in a shallow grave in the back of a largely Afro-Caribbean neighborhood, the case comes to Tennison. The case becomes mired in prejudice and politics, more than enough for Jane to contend with but nothing compared to the problems she faces when her personal and professional worlds collide.
