PRIME SUSPECT Multimedia Case History

"Errors Of Judgement," Parts One & Two air Thursdays, May 9 & 16 at 11 p.m. - In this story, told over four episodes (May 9 - 30, 2013), Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison, sent to Manchester, investigates a murder in which a drug runner was shot dead. She soon encounters 'The Street', a corrupt reprobate who rules over the local crime scene. Believing him to be the prime suspect, she soon finds her every move in the investigation is anticipated by the criminal.

In these opening two episodes, Tennison has been transferred from the Met to Manchester. To ease her into the job, she is sent to schools to lecture but feels her abilities are being wasted.

Meanwhile, a drug runner is shot dead returning to his apartment and Tennison finds herself hot on the case. The victim is a young Pakistani boy and Campbell Lafferty, another juvenile, confesses to the murder but is later released.

"Errors Of Judgement," Parts Three & Four air Thursdays, May 23 & 30 at 11 p.m. - In the concluding episodes, Jane Tennison and the team try to find out where Campbell Lafferty was executed after being released. Appearing on "Crime Night," she decides to pull in 'The Street', believing that he is responsible. But the closer she gets to proving that the arrogant rottweiller-toting bad guy engineered the crime, the more obstacles she encounters. 'The Street' seems to anticipate her every move - but can she can break him?

This series originally aired in 2011.
