Seventh `Suspect': satisfying

November 12, 2006|By Robert Lloyd | Robert Lloyd,Los Angeles Times

DSI Jane Tennison, the Scotland Yard detective played by Helen Mirren in the Prime Suspect series, returns for the last time tonight, in the terminally titled Prime Suspect 7: The Final Act.

That the actress and role are together again - and for the last time - qualifies this as a television event, and it does not disappoint.

"Satisfying" might not be the right word for a film whose apportioning of pain and loss and rain-bitten gloom is so pervasive, but it doesn't violate the spirit of the series or of its perennially half-triumphant heroine. It doesn't take us out on a sour note.
