Courtroom drama gold" --The Sunday Times (U.K.) [four stars] --Scripps Howard News Service
"BBC period drama at its very best" --British Heritage magazine
As seen on PBS
Andrew Buchan (Cranford, The Fixer) returns as fiery barrister William Garrow in this award-winning courtroom drama set in 18th-century England. In a time when prisoners in court have few rights, Garrow leads a legal revolution, coining the phrase "innocent until proven guilty" and defending the accused against the state. In return, he makes powerful enemies in politics and law. Chief among them is Sir Arthur Hill (Rupert Graves, Sherlock, The Forsyte Saga), now assistant secretary to the admiralty. Jealous and vengeful, Hill believes that Garrow is involved with his wife, Lady Sarah (Lyndsey Marshal, Rome, Being Human).
As Garrow tackles difficult and controversial cases, all drawn from the Old Bailey archives, Sir Arthur’s net tightens around him. Soon Garrow is on trial, charged with "criminal conversation" -- 18th-century code for adultery. Can his friend and mentor John Southouse (Alun Armstrong, Little Dorrit, New Tricks) save Garrow’s reputation and career?
Well produced and acted, as is usual for a British production. Stories are somewhat contrived but entertaining.Published 24 days ago by dmilli

Another incredibly well written drama from the BBC. How do their writers learn to use language with such beauty and grace? Love the series.Published 4 months ago by So. Cal. Bill
This is the second year of three in a far too brief series produced by the BBC. This series is what brings history come to life. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Saltwaterfisherman
