Product Overview

Facing the hospitalization of her father, descending deeper into alcoholism, and resisting pressure to retire quietly, Detective Superintendent Jane Tennison vows to find a killer before ending her career. Helen Mirren's award-winning portrayal of the deeply flawed, ultimately sympathetic Tennison is "perhaps the greatest role and performance of a female police detective, ever" --San Francisco Chronicle. Tense, suspenseful, and riveting, The Final Act is a grand finale to a superb series.

ReviewSource Variety
Review A slew of U.S. crime procedurals has arrived since Jane Tennison -- writer Lynda La Plante's female police inspector in a predominantly male world -- made her debut 15 years ago. While the character is clearly the worse for wear, Helen Mirren's latest scintillating performance elevates this otherwise conventional potboiler into a fitting sendoff...None of this is especially fresh terrain, but Mirren's star power and the other solid perfs -- most notably by young Greenwood as Penny -- add texture to material that would otherwise pass as a standard CBS procedural, albeit one that unfolds at a more leisurely pace...The main distinction is Mirren. Following her Emmy-winning perf in HBO's "Elizabeth I" and title turn in "The Queen," she invests Tennison with dignity and intelligence but also pathos, determined to solve Sallie's murder so she can go out on a win before her excesses undo her.
