Prime Suspect Fan Tributes3 Georgina from Corona CA: In the episode titled The Scent Of Darkness, Darrell D'Silva, the sexiest thing I've seen in ages, plays Andreas the nephew of the owner of the Greek Cafe. Love to see more of him, and find more bio online. What a hunk!
2 MR H COLLIER from PRESTON: this drama is the best tv show ever made. i would like to meet helen mirren in person, she is the greatest actress i have ever seen on tv, and is attractive.
1 Mary from Ranch Mirage, Ca: It is painful & disgusting to see Helen Mirren, One of our favorites seen smoking on Prime Suspect. We have just seen Peter Jennings pass away from lung cancer. Please Hollywood, BBC & everyone stop this horrible habit and stop above all showing it to the public. Thank you. mary zimmerman
