Heads Up #16: Prime Suspect

Next week ITV3 are beginning a run of Prime Suspect stories beginning with the very first two-part story.  The series starred Helen Mirren as no-nonsense Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison, coping at the top of a very male-dominated and chauvinistic profession.  Only nine Prime Suspect stories were actually made:- Consisting of seven in its initial run from 1991-1996; and a couple of comeback stories in 2003 and 2006.

The first story from 1991 (which doesn't have an individual title) is the only one to have any nudity.  This involves Zoë Wanamaker standing at her front door and defiantly displaying her breasts to two men watching her.  I don't currently know in which of the two parts this occurs.
