breaking bad

Prime Suspect

ITV are rejuvenating their reputation for drama by screening final episodes of their two fantastic drama series of the 90's - Cracker and Prime Suspect, featuring the battered, ageing, but loveable Robbie Coltrane and Helen Mirren. Both were very welcome, but I have to say that Prime Suspect was the better of the two. Unless they completely screw up part 2 next week.

Helen Mirren has been a favourite since 'The Long Good Friday', and I find I love her more with each year. I thought she was incredible in part 1 - ageing, drunken, emotionally screwed. What a character arc. Mirren gets more interesting and attractive as she gets older IMHO.
