Top Critic

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.

June 21, 2017 | Full Review…

No drama, no tension, and full of dull characters woodenly performed, with the exception of Ruth Sheen, who is brilliant in everything.

August 31, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.
