    Fabulous, a truly stunning grab-you-by-the-throat TV experience. [11 Feb 1993]

    [Helen] Mirren is terrific — hard-boiled but never macho; always suggesting a sort of bitter humor. Some of the scenes between Mirren and her enlightened teddy bear of a boyfriend (Tom Wilkinson) are soggy, but most of the time, Prime Suspect ... is wonderfully tense entertainment.

    A crackling good British police procedural. ... The British accents and idioms can get dense, but don't let that throw you, you dozy punter.
