  • This is the very final episode of Prime Suspect. Helen Mirren goes out gracefully and brilliantly.

    This is the very final episode of Prime Suspect. Helen Mirren goes out gracefully. The murder of a fourteen year old girl is DCI Jane Tennison's last case. She has decided to retire at the end of the case. Jane goes from suspecting one man, to the father of the murder victim's best friend, to finally the person who did kill the girl. Helen Mirren does an absolutely brilliant job as Jane, who tries to deal with the death of her father, the murder in front of her of her old nemesis-turned-mentor, and the notion of retirement. Jane deals with her sister with whom she is at odds. However, the biggest trial is Jane trying to deal with the realization that she is an alchoholic. Mirren, a wonderful actress, allows herself to appear in less than flattering situations. Just as it was sad when Inspector Morse died, it is sad to lose the character of DCI Jane Tennison. However, Jane does not die in the end like Morse, but she walks off into the unknown and hopefully a better life.
