Prime Suspect was a British procedural that aired whenever Helen Mirren felt like it for about sixteen years. She played the only woman detective in the world. I love this show very much, but I find it exhausting because no one will be her FRIEND, and I have a life-threatening condition where I need to imagine fictional characters are my friends, and I can support them by staying at home and feeling things very intensely.
One of my very favorite shows and the foundation for some of my erotics. Gillian Anderson's post X Files hot-smart-powerful omnisexual roles owe so much to Mirren's juicy indomitable bravado and capabilities for scorching brilliantly in and between tense interrogations and languorous seductions.
