Jennings, Ros (1998) Prime Suspect. In: Museum of Broadcasting Encyclopedia of Television. Fitzroy Dearborn, London.Full text not available from this repository.
In 1991 Prime Suspect was broadcast on British television to great critical and public acclaim. The production received numerous awards for its writer Lynda La Plante and star Helen Mirren, including a rather controversial BAFTA Award for Best Drama Serial. Prime Suspect's importance to the development of the police drama series as a genre in Britain is great. By installing a woman as the head of a murder squad, Prime Suspect broke new ground in terms of both gender and the authenticity in the portrayal of the internal dynamics of the police as an organisation.
