Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison's (Dame Helen Mirren's) investigation of the murder of a Bosnian refugee leads her to one, or possibly two, Serbian war criminals determined to silence the last witness to a massacre a decade before.
Dame Helen Mirren had director approval for this production, which meant she had the the right to look at directors and meet them. She met Tom Hooper and approved him, telling him it had to be his vision, and she would protect it.
Det. Supt. Jane Tennison:
You know, it'll be a huge miscalculation to try and undermine my authority.
Tennison's glasses suddenly appear on her face during the second interview with Milan Lukic.
