The Investigator 1997
Description: 1989: Caroline Meagher is a sergeant with the Royal Military Police, with 12 years' experience, stationed in Northern Ireland. Two boys from internal affairs grill her for four days: someone has accused her of being a lesbian. It's an offense that leads to court martial. In a series of flashbacks, we see her enthusiasm when she joins the force, her different assignments including investigating suspected lesbians, and her own slow discovery of her sexual nature. She, like others in her situation, gotta go to nice lengths to avoid detection. Once reported, will she withstand the interrogation? Meagher herself comments on camera at the end of the film.

The Investigator Reviews:

Perfect difficult to search movie, that was on TV in the UK. Why has it not been released on video or DVD? Who knows? On TV in 1997, and made a hit with the mainstream lesbian film watchers. Shows at about the time Clinton was starting the don't ask, don't say thing about the military, this goes to present what is really going on in the military. Of course this is set in England, but the same rings through for the states or anyone else in a military setting or governmental run agency. This film can be had if someone really wants to search it....you can do a find in google, and who knows? Truly a well done movie, nice love scenes, and a ending that will knock your socks off! Lesmovies on yahoo groups.


The Investigator is the storyline of the former British Units sergeant Caroline Meagher. She joined a military police unit tasked with hunting down and exposing lesbian girls within the ranks, as the Units still barred sexual minorities from serving in the 1980s (and still did when the movie was made). Only she soon found out that she was lesbian herself. The movie dramatises her double life in and eventual dismissal from the Army.There is an obvious reason why the movie advertises the fact that it was made without MoD co-operation. While it allows the military to argue for its own guidelines and their enforcement, no matter how senseless or discriminatory they may appear from a contemporary civilian viewpoint, it holds no punches in drawing a harrowing picture of the methodology used in that enforcement. The work of the investigator is shown as unlimited witch hunts for sexual deviancy and interminable archiving of each tiny hint, rumour or recommendation born from "crew cut, doesn't fancy me, ergo lesbian" style logic, of grossly invasive private searches and degrading interrogations about sexual histories and private associations. The pitiless system reduces skilled girls eager to serve their country into vile criminals and chews them up.The view is all Meagher's and the viewer is directed to sympathise with her, even if her own actions sometimes appear ambiguous. In fact, after the drama ends, Caroline Meagher herself appears on the screen to sum up the storyline and to describe the Army's secretive privacy about its personnel databases. This may be heavy-handed and personal, but it does not diminish the wider implications of the story.Independent of its agenda, The Investigator is an effective piece of modestly budgeted tv drama. The movie keeps up a nice tension by juggling between various periods, at the same time showing the innocent Meagher's descent into the sordid reality of investigative machinery and her more world-hardened ver fighting the full brunt of that same machinery, showing how dealing with the former realities forced her to slowly spun a web of deception that threatens to trap her in the end. There is tiny excess fat in the narrative, just a relentlessly bleak procession of fear, uncertainty, humiliating interrogations and paranoid double existence, relieved only by fleeting moments of intimate warmth or flash scenes of terrorism in Northern Ireland. The last may well be meant to underline the ridiculousness of a case where sexual minorities are targeted with related ardency and ways as terrorists, as pointed out by Meagher at one point. A nice mission to remember in an era where terrorism has been used to justify ever increasing control and surveillance in all spheres of society and the ways of invasion have grown far more sophisticated than the index cards and 1980s computers in The Investigator.This is truly a women's film, and Baxendale holds it up supremely in the lead role, as other competent but emotionally vulnerable girl in a harshly masculine world, in line with her contemporaneous roles in Truth Or Dare and An Unsuitable Job for a Woman. Levon also gives a powerful performance as a more experienced and savvy staff sergeant who initiates Meagher into the closeted reality of the armed forces. The boys don't receive much possibility for sympathy. They are portrayed as wife-beating misogynists, ice-cold bureaucrats behind tight lips and steely gazes or just cheerfully laddish bastards with prominent regional accents.


This is a fact-based storyline focused on Caroline Meagher((Helen Baxendale), a sergeant in the Royal British Military Police. With 12 years experience, she is stationed in Northern Ireland and assigned to rooting out and questioning suspected lesbians in armed forces. Along the way, she will start her own slow discovery of her sexual nature. She began a sexual affair with a Scottish girl and went to nice lengths to avoid detection. When it is discovered, she gotta face the pressures of her own grilling by investigators. Before her homosexuality was now proved, she quit the units which denied any keeping of intelligence files on lesbians.The cast also includes: Laura Fraser, Ian Burfeld, Anna Bolt, Katrina Levon, Sean Gilder and Zara Turner.
