The Commander - All 5 Series of the UK Show in RLJ/Acorn's 'The Complete Collection'

The Commander - All 5 Series of the UK Show in RLJ/Acorn's 'The Complete Collection'

17 episodes on 7 DVDs will be available around mid-January

Posted by David Lambert
    After 20 years with London's Metropolitan Police, Clare Blake (Amanda Burton, Silent Witness, The Level) has reached the pinnacle of her profession. She is New Scotland Yard's highest-ranking female officer, the Serious Crime Group Commander, and head of the Murder Review Team. Ambitious and fiercely dedicated to her work, Blake nonetheless blurs the lines between her personal life and her career. Her recklessness brings her under her superior's intense scrutiny-and even threatens her life.

    This complete collection of gripping mysteries from award-winning writer Lynda La Plante (Prime Suspect) guest stars Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), James D'Arcy (Dunkirk), Saskia Reeves (Wolf Hall), David Patrick O'Hara (The Departed), Yorick van Wageningen (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Celia Imrie (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Simon Williams (Upstairs, Downstairs), Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey), Matt Day (Rake [Australia]), and Greg Wise (The Crown).
From 2003 to 2008, The Commander ran in the UK on ITV1, starring Amanda Burton and based on the stories by Lynda La Plante.
