Prime Suspect 1973 (also known as Prime Suspect: Tennison) is a British television detective drama series, and a prequel to the long-running Prime Suspect series, originally starring Helen Mirren as DCI Jane Tennison. The series, which is set primarily in Hackney, portrays a young Jane Tennison (Stefanie Martini) as she begins her career as a WPC with the Metropolitan Police Service in 1973.[1] The series is at a time when women were beginning to be gradually integrated into the police force. In a workplace dominate by chauvinistic male police officers, Tennison assists in the investigation of the murder of a young prostitute. Tennison has to deal with sexism, as well as difficulties in her home life as her family disapprove of her career choice.
