Synopsis >

Oscar winner Helen Mirren is Detective Jane Tennison, perhaps the greatest role and performance of a female police detective, ever (San Francisco Chronicle), in a series that won more than 20 major international awards and raised the bar for police dramas. In Series 5, Detective Superintendent Tennison relocates to the Greater Manchester Police for a stint as a community relations officer at local schools. When she complains to her new boss, DCS Ballinger, he assigns her to the shooting case of a young drug dealer. Tennison pegs a corrupt local drug lord as the killer, but somehow he stays one step ahead of her investigation. Is he getting inside information? Meanwhile, Tennison engages in a romantic affair that complicates her life even more.
