Clare Blake is New Scotland Yard's highest-ranking woman officer. Icy-cool, ambitious but reckless, she lets her personal life bleed into her career, defying convention and risking her reputation. Amanda Burton stars as the female cop who crosses the line in taut police dramas from Prime Suspect creator Lynda La Plante.

Three DVD each with a different story which comes to a conclusion. I like Amanda Burton's acting and I enjoyed each disk very much.

This set has 3 DVDs with 2 different stories on disc 1 &2 and just the one longer story on disc 3 which I preferred - the abduction of a police officer's baby from the maternity ward. The only character remaining from Set 1 is the Commander played by Amanda Burton. She has a different office and even a different apartment. The police are seen in a positive light in these 3 discs.

I find Amanda Burton (Silent Witness) seems to play the same kind of
character, always, very opinionated. Not my cup of tea.

Still good to see this season 2. Corruption in a Men World and the implication of a police woman trapped in it.

Disappointed again. How many critical situations does a police constable have to handle and how many political battles does a police woman have to win before she can become the Commander? If she does not have a clear mind that can steer her to do the right thing at the right time, she will be very lucky just to stay as a constable. If Clare only passed the baby to a female officer, instead of bringing the wrong baby by herself, the outcome would be very different. Just can' t believe that such an experienced senior officer can react so foolishly emotional. It would be more convincing if Clare was only a business executive. To be fair, all performers are brilliant though.

Character just not believable. People at that level in a large organization are not that self destructive, at least not in that way.
