Drama Connections: Prime Suspect

October 25, 2005 | 30 minutes
Directed by: Brendan O'Hara
The first British police drama to put a woman in charge of a murder squad, Prime Suspect was later used by the Met to help guard against sexism in the workplace. But how accurate a reflection was it of life on the force? The show's technical adviser, former Met officer Jackie Malton , joins writer Lynda La Plante and stars including Helen Mirren in recalling the background to the seminal series.
