Editorial Reviews

Legal drama ripped from the pages of history

"BBC period drama at its very best" —British Heritage magazine
"Enlightening" —The Seattle Times

As seen on PBS "One of the best historical dramas…in years" —Scripps Howard News Service

At the Old Bailey, pioneering barrister William Garrow (Andrew Buchan, Cranford) continues to fight for prisoners' rights, an uphill battle in 18th-century England. The French Revolution has made the state more determined than ever to hold on to power, and Garrow’s own circumstances are dire. Now living with Lady Sarah Hill (Lyndsey Marshal, Rome), he is impoverished and ostracized by his peers. Separated from her husband, the vengeful MP Sir Arthur Hill (Rupert Graves, Sherlock, The Forsyte Saga), Lady Sarah has no rights in the eyes of the law. On top of it all, Garrow's mentor and friend, John Southouse (Alun Armstrong, Little Dorrit, New Tricks), takes ill.

The cases Garrow takes are especially risky. Defending a would-be assassin of King George III, he challenges the legal definition of madness. He also exposes weavers' horrible working conditions and puts British colonial governance on trial. Meanwhile, a proposition tests Garrow's professional integrity—but could give Lady Sarah what she desperately desires.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into English Law 200 Years Ago February 27, 2012
Format:DVD
I think the most fascinating aspect of Garrow's Law is that this is not a fictional account. Although not as widely known as perhaps he warrants, William Garrow was a prominent English lawyer, initially specialising in defence and subsequently becoming a Member of Parliament and Solicitor General.

Garrow is widely credited as being the father of the adversarial system of justice which is in use in many countries with forthright cross examination of witnesses. His insistence that hearsay evidence should not be admissible led to the rules on `best evidence'. Each of these episodes is based on a true case from the annals of the Old Bailey, England's premier criminal court, although not necessarily one which Garrow was involved with. For example this season's first episode concerns a disturbed individual called James Hadfield. He has directed a shot towards the Prince Regent at Drury Lane Theatre and, it emerges, was attempting suicide in what would be described in the modern idiom as `death by cop'. A quick search through Google will confirm that, as with all cases in Garrow's Law, this was a real case.

Garrow's personal life is also based on fact, as he had a long term relationship and later married Sarah, who had previously borne a child by a Viscount. Obviously the script writer has had to fill in the gaps, but it appears that the significant facts which can be checked out are correct so what we have here is a fascinating insight into the workings of the legal system a little over two hundred years ago, and the life and work of a highly influential individual.

As in the previous two series the main criticism is that the season is so short, comprising only four episodes to go with the eight previously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great History and Drama November 7, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
We love this series and look forward to more seasons. This last one was wrapped up nicely, great and cleaver endings with a tease of new alliance with the politician Fox. Which of course we know has more historical truth to the tale.

Great acting. Will miss Alun Armstrong. He is such a great actor.

Keep them coming with more like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Well Done BBC Product September 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
Very interesting costume drama about an assertive lawyer (barrister?) in 18th Century England whose interest is always in protecting the meek and the innocent from the rich and famous connivers who would have their way regardless of their brand of "justice". When tired of the juvenile and unnecessarily violent junk that masquerades these days as "drama" on networks and cable stations, try the Garrow Series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Period Series! April 22, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed following this series and how disappointed I am that it was cancelled after only three seasons. Garrow's Law is the best Georgian era series I've ever encountered. The plots are dramatic, the costumes perfect, and the attention to historical detail extreme. Thankfully, this final season doesn't end in a cliffhanger but manages to wrap up all the storylines and leave us in a comfortable place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, even if flawed August 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
This was probably one of the weakest episodes of the entire series, but still worth 5 stars for all that. The loss of Alun Armstrong as part of the proceedings is keenly felt, and the entire conflict with Sarah and Arthur over Samuel is tidied up too neatly, albeit in a very satisfying way. I get the feeling that they knew they were not going to get a new season at this point and had to charge through at a breakneck pace to tidy up all the lose ends, but Garrow's turns in the courtroom are no less powerful for all of that. He may not be able to bring down the guilty parties in the end, but the fate of the revolting Lord Meville is sure to delight those who have been watching both seasons. I certainly hope we get more in the future, but if this is the last episode, it does credit to everyone who helped create it.
