Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison'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.
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 to direct it, telling him it had to be his vision and she would protect it.
Will he come after me, too?
Det. Supt. Jane Tennison: No. No - because I'm going to find him, and I'm going too lock him away - and he's *never* coming out.
Towards the beginning Tennison says she is 54 years old, however in Prime Suspect 5 she says she is 50. As Prime Suspect 6 is set 7 years later she would be 57 not 54.
