Little is illuminated about Jane Tennison's early years, effectively negating its value as a prequel.

Basically, Prime Suspect: Tennison answers a question - What was Jane like as a young cop? - that, given the reach of Mirren's work, no one was asking.

The miniseries ... never gets off the ground.

June 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Prime Suspect: Tennison, which takes us back to the early days of a rookie Tennison played by Stefanie Martini, is a tedious dud, awkward and obvious.

June 26, 2017 | Full Review…

It ends well - or well enough to inspire a bit of sadness at knowing that TV is moving on without Miller and Hardy.
