Summary, etc.:
Created and written by Lynda La Plante, a long-running British series displays the same hard-bitten sensibility and emotional resonance that made Prime Suspect a television landmark. Follow a case from the scene of the crime to the courtroom verdict. Boasting innovative storytelling and uncompromising realism, Trial and Retribution powerfully portrays the psychological scars that violence leaves behind.

Vol. III: A girl's disappearance on her paper route grows more complex after grisly clues are discovered. (Approx. 208 min.)
Vol. IV: When a cold case of Walker's is reopened, personal and professional pressures mount for North. (Approx. 204 min.)
