Trivia

The show is only loosely based on Lynda La Plante's novel "Tennison". La Plante originally collaborated with producers on the show but walked away from the project due to creative differences. See more »

Goofs

The then new 'Wellington' series-D five pound notes are seen throughout the series. While these were definitely in use but still coming into play as currency, the previous series were still common. Every scene where there is a £5 note shown, shows the new series...including the ones buried in the late 60s after an old robbery. Series D was introduced in October 1971 as part of the decimal changeover and even in the banks, many of the older series would have been used. See more »

I Remember it Well
11 March 2018 | by mgadfly-29347See all my reviews

Stephanie Martini is an excellent young Tennison. I graduated tom high school in 1971, and I affirm that the sexual politics are spot on. Right down to her mom. I'm really enjoying this, and I wonder what Dame Helen thought of it.
