Zoë Wanamaker and John Bowe added to this Sunday’s Prime Suspect celebration

Thirty years! Really? Seems hard to believe. Yet it’s 30 years ago that Prime Suspect was first broadcast. As I (re)discovered – although I always kind of knew it – when I recently rewatched it, it really is an astonishingly good piece of work.

The BFI was already going to celebrate it this weekend with Lynda La Plante in Conversation with Matthew Sweet. But the good news is that two of the stars, Zoë Wanamaker and John Bowe, will now be joining them on stage. Get your tickets ASAP!
